    + This Experience Supports

    Details

    • Balloon expedition aiming to cross over Mt. Everest 
    • The flight itself will take the better part of a day
    • The expedition may spend several weeks in Nepal, depending on how long it takes to find an appropriate weather window
    • While Chris will make completing the journey a priority, safety is of course the top concern.  If the weather is uncooperative at the time of the attempt, Chris will make every effort to reschedule though this may come at additional expense
    • Passengers will need to commit to up to a month of physical and skills training, depending on their background
    • This experience includes an attempt at crossing Mt. Everest in a hot air balloon, not necessarily the successful completion of that journey. If the journey is either postponed due to weather or does not succeed in crossing Everest, a later attempt can be scheduled with Chris at additional expense
    • An extensive liability waiver will need to be agreed upon by all parties before the purchase of this experience
    • Chris will need to assess the physical and mental faculties of anyone attempting this journey before approving the sale. Each passenger is an integral part of the crew and their abilities are required to cross Mt. Everest
    • Preparational training is required and will be an additional expense
    • Experience provided in English (US)

    Fine Print

    • Will be scheduled on a mutually agreeable date and time, based on luminary’s availability
