Incredible Adventures Extreme Event
World's Highest Gig 2012
THIS EVENT IS NOW OVER
In 2005, Music4children
broke the world record for the "The Highest Gig" at Kalapattar,
Mt Everest, and raised enough money to build an orphanage for
the children of Nepal.
Their record setting performance at 5545 meters
(18,190 feet) has since been topped by another group, so they're
heading back to Nepal this spring to reclaim their place in the
record books and raise additional money for the orphanage.
You can join them, either as a musician or an audience
member. Either way, it's sure to be an event you'll remember
This time, the World's Highest Gig is planned for
Mera Peak in Nepal and an altitude of 6476 meters (21,240 feet).
Mera Peak is the highest of the "trekking peaks" in Nepal. Performers
and audience members need not be super fit or experienced mountain
climbers. The trek will follow "the easy route" up Mera and includes
extra time to acclimatize to altitude.
