Everest ER – Himalayan Rescue Association

The Everest Base Camp Medical Clinic (Everest ER,) a project of the Himalayan Rescue Association-USA (US based nonprofit charity org) and Himalayan Rescue Association (a non-profit Nepali NGO) was first established during the 2003 Everest 50th anniversary spring climbing season. We began our 14th season in the first week of April 2016 and plan to operate until the end of spring climbing season or May 31, as indicated.
