Expeditions

The ultimate goal of Mission Summit is to stand on the summit of Mount Everest, which Niels van Buren has succeeded to do in May 2016! To reach the summit of Everest requires a thorough preparation. By climbing other appealing mountains leading up to Everest, we kill two birds with one stone; we generate additional attention for MS and gain the necessary experience to climb Everest. The climbs have been made by MS patient Niels van Buren.

Preparations

To reach the top, the body will have to be sufficiently acclimatized and in good condition. Therefore, we have carefully prepared a preparation program in collaboration with Mountain Network so that everyone can prepare as well as possible. Herein physical and mental fitness will be addressed. In addition, our climbers have to gain certain skills in the mountains as rappelling, rope and rescue techniques, but also living and surviving at high altitudes.
