Everest Base Camp news: Adventurer reveals World Triathlon plans

For many people, climbing to Everest Base Camp as part of a trekking holiday to Nepal would be enough of an achievement.

However, US adventurer Charlie Wittmack does not only want to summit the peak for the second time - he also wants his trip to the Asian country to form part of his experience.

Therefore, he is planning to swim down Britain's River Thames, before continuing across the English Channel.

He will then switch to a bike and cycle to Nepal, crossing numerous countries along the way.

Calling his attempt the World Triathlon, Mr Wittmack told the Daily Iowan: "I guess what I learned on Everest is we can go a lot further from what we think we can."

Those who do not yet feel ready to cover tens of thousands of miles on an activity holiday should consider one of The Adventure Company's trekking holidays to Nepal.

Although the Everest Base Camp trip does not go to the summit, it instead allows tourists to check out bustling Kathmandu and enjoy stunning views of the peak.
