Discovery Channel To Feature IMG’s Everest Team

IMG Team at the Top of Mt. Everest

The Discovery Channel will be filming a new season of Everest: Beyond the Limit in the next few months, and this year AMK sponsored International Mountain Guides (IMG) will be featured as they attempt to bring 50 clients to the top of the world via the South Side of the mountain. IMG Himalayan Director Eric Simonson, and a film team will join the great group of climbers and trekkers already on board for IMG’s 2009 Everest expedition.

The planning and preparations are already well under way. Ang Jangbu reports from Kathmandu that the first 3000kg of gear was sent last week by helicopter to Shyangboche.  The loads are now moving by yak toward Base Camp, where our Sherpa team has already started building our camp.

Since 1991 IMG has successfully supported 179 people from 14 countries to the summit of Everest, and they are looking forward to another great season on the mountain.  AMK is proud to support IMG in their monumental effort this season.
