For those who want to combine an adventure holiday with a race, then the Everest Marathon is the perfect choice. It’s been organized every two years since 1987 and is in possession of a Guinness World Record for being the highest marathon on the planet. This race poses a great challenge even to the toughest runners.

After a 15-day acclimatization trek, participants start the race at Gorak Shep (5184m), just beneath Everest Base Camp, where they first descend through snow,boulders, ice, scree, grass, and forest before crossing the finish line at the Sherpa capital of Namche Bazaar.
