Out of Thin Air: A Himalayan Life Event
After six gruelling days covering over 600km with a total elevation gain of 26,000ft, Himalayan Life CEO and Founder, Daniel Burgi and five friends, completed Altitude: the Ride for Himalayan Life: a challenging high-altitude cycle over Khardung La Pass and Chang La Pass – two of the world’s highest mountain passes.
This challenging ride was not to check off an item from a personal bucket list but to raise awareness for children’s education in Nepal and India. Through navigating the challenging mountain roads, the extreme altitude, and thin air, the team was able to, in a small way, touch on the reality of the lives of the families and children we serve.
These events took place in 2022 in Vancouver and Chilliwack, BC and Juneau, Alaska!
