Everest for Peace - Everest

Everest for Peace - Everest

The Everest Peace Project is a peace organisation that consists of individuals who have come together to promote peace, teamwork, and cultural understanding, and to show that people from diverse cultural backgrounds and faiths can unite.

It is the original vision of one person while on a mountain top in India who decided that he wanted to do something positive and inspirational for the world. On October 2nd, 2002 while trekking in Ladakh, India - Lance Trumbull was 15,000 feet high - overlooking one of the most incredible valleys he had ever seen when a vision or a sudden burst of inspiration overcame him. It was freezing outside, but the intensity of his vision was keeping him warm....Only an hour had passed but within that short period of time Lance had envisioned his new mission in life - never before had his life's purpose been so clear: he was going to organize a world peace climb on Mt. Everest with people of different faiths and cultures that would promote a global community of peace, teamwork, and cultural understanding. -  "Honestly, I felt a bit like Frodo in Lord of the Rings in that I was given this task and that it was my mission to make sure that I successfully made it happen - and so I decided to dedicate my life in making this vision, this dream - become a reality."
