LA PALESTRA has brought members on treks around the globe; most notably a 14 day trek in the Himalaya, to the Base Camp of Mt. Everest and summit of Kala Pata, a 7 day trek on the Inca Trail from Cusco to Machu Picchu in Peru, and several 6 day treks to the 19,341 foot summit of Mt. Kilimanjaro in Tanzania.
Trekking consists of non-technical trail walking with a day pack and tented camping, and has provided LA PALESTRA members and staff the opportunity to see and explore some of the most spectacular places in the world.
Typical trekking programs include lectures on specific cultural elements of the destinations, seminars on equipment, requirements, and selection, itinerary design (if necessary) as well as, a comprehensive physical and mental preparation.
