Great Himalaya Trek

Great Himalaya Trek

Adami & Martucci has sponsored Elizabeth Fox as she completes her epic trek across Nepal’s Great Himalaya Trail, covering 1,056 miles (1700 km).

Elizabeth Fox is a part of Great Himalaya Trail – Climate Smart Celebrity Trek, which aims to channel tourists and pro-poor tourism investments to less visited and under developed districts of Nepal while at the same time to raise awareness about climate change impacts in the Himalayas and showcase how sustainable tourism can be a tool for poverty reduction.

Elizabeth, a US citizen residing in Rome, Italy, has a strong passion for mountains and a great sensitivity to diverse cultures, religions and people. She has a Masters in Political Science from l’Universita’ di Roma, La Sapienza and a BS from the University of Alabama, USA. Elizabeth has lived extensively abroad, from Italy to Bhutan and Nepal.

The 120-day event is being led by Apa Sherpa (21-time Mt. Everest world record summiteer) and Dawa Steven Sherpa (two-time Mt. Everest summiteer and environmentalist). The mountaineer duo is being accompanied by Saurav Dhakal, a British Council International Climate Champion and Samir Jung Thapa, official photographer. The event is endorsed by Nepal’s Climate Change Council, the apex body of Government of Nepal that is headed by the Prime Minister of Nepal.
