FEBRUARY 2008, BBC Extreme Dreams is televised

This 5-part BBC reality TV show in which contestants are taken on an ‘extreme adventure’ by TV adventurer Ben Fogle was the unlikely trigger for the creation of the Helambu Project UK. Filmed in Spring 2007, it followed five individuals as they trekked through the Helambu region, to reach finally the lakes of Panch Pokhari at 14,000ft. The trek was organised by Richard Struthers from Safe Jourmeys and Dr Mike Steven was invited to join as the expedition medic having recently trekked with Richard to Everest Base Camp. The series was screened in the UK in January 2008, giving more than a million people an insight into the beauty of the area and the hospitality of it’s people. As it turned out, the trek lived up to its name with some rather extreme moments!
