Gary climbs Mt Everest – virtually and physically!
Year on year, Gary McKitterick-Gillet supports Shake It Up through his company Trek Ready Himalayas, who host virtual and physical treks of Mt Everest Base camp.
2022 was the first year since Covid-19 that Gary has been able to return to Nepal for the trek, with cold temperatures and stunning views! He trekked with Tina Beard who has been part of Gary’s virtual treks.
Gary has also been facilitating virtual treks of Mt Everest from anywhere in Australia for anyone who wants to participate but isn’t able to travel to Nepal. For his virtual trek, Gary climbs Mt Coolum in QLD over and over again until he reaches the same distance as Mt Everest. If you want to be part of a virtual or physical trek of Mt Everest with Gary, you can contact him on firstname.lastname@example.org
