Climb the Himalayas all expenses paid

Climb the Himalayas with Mike Horn’s Pangaea environmental expedition – apply right away!

Anyone between 15 and 20 years old can apply to join Mike Horn’s Pangaea environmental expedition, a round-the-world adventure that will be exploring the Himalayas in May 2010. There are no costs attached – all you need is a passion for saving the planet. The emphasis is on showing youths the beauty of the Earth, so that they grow up to be its custodians.

From the applications, about 20 youngsters from around the world will be selected to attend a training camp in Switzerland. From those, about eight will be chosen to join the Himalaya climb. All expenses are covered and there is no cost to participants for either the training camp in Switzerland or the Himalaya climb.

The Pangaea expedition is a four-year, seven-continent journey. Those who join the expedition, called Young Explorers, join in different places to Explore, Learn and Act. So far groups have visited Antarctica, New Zealand and Borneo.

Applications close soon! (The application deadline has been extended to after Christmas and is not 20th Dec as stated on the website.) For more info visit or click here to complete an application form, or email Adelle Horler direct.

Many thanks,
Adelle Horler

A note from Adelle: My email is there as an alternative if anyone wants to apply and can’t find what they need. I was part of the expedition crew aboard Pangaea in Borneo, and part of my job as expedition journalist is to spread the environmental message and get more young people involved. I can vouch 100% for the expedition, Mike Horn and his sponsors (the main ones of which are Mercedes-Benz, Gerberit and Panerai). The expedition has been underway for a little more than a year; its patrons are Prince Albert of Monaco and Gaynor Rupert, wife of Johann Rupert.

3. I blog our hikes to help other people find nice hiking routes, but also because we love taking pictures on our hikes.
4. On the right column are images of some of the hikes we have done so far. Click on the images to read about those hikes.

There is an old saying...

The more you learn, the more you realize how little you know.
