Finally 26 students could sustain the rigorous training given by JanJay adventures for 45 days and then the Trek commenced on 10th October from Lukla to Phakding which is 2652 m, followed by a trek upto 3440 m to Namche, there by Tengboche upto 3860m and to Dingboche by trekking up to 4360m and reaching Lobuche at 4940m and finally to Gorakshep at 5170, to hike to Everest base Camp at 5364 m, which was completed by 18th October.

The best part of this expedition is the contingent which includes a 7 year old young boy with other 13 boys and 12 girls to a 50 year old professional coach from JanJay team, who exhibited equal energy and determination till the summit was completed. THE LARGEST CONTINGENT OF SCHOOL STUDENTS IN THE WORLD TO ACCOMPLISH EVEREST BASE CAMP TREK 2017 ARE ARRIVING IN HYDERABAD ON 23RD OCTOBER.
