Take your class to see some of the tallest and most dangerous mountains from around the world. We’ll take your pupils on a bird’s eye tour of Mount Everest, K2, Mount Kilimanjaro, the Matterhorn and Mount Fuji. During this workshop, your class will learn about the height and location of each mountain and the difficulties climbers face when trying to reach the summit.
Your pupils will also have the chance to see South base camp on Mount Everest, one of the most popular trekking routes in the Himalayas. This stop is often used as preparation for climbers trying to reach the summit. Our second stop in the Himalayas will be at Gokyo Village, 4,750m above sea level, making it one of the highest settlements in the world. It’s believed that a tenth of the human population live on mountains!
This workshop is a great way of putting mountains into perspective and it really helps pupils to see the differences in size, formation and landscape.
