The Everest Peace Project is an organization that promotes peace, teamwork and cultural understanding by climbing some of the highest peaks in the world by a team of individuals from various faiths and cultures. In 2006, there was an ascent of Mount Everest by an interfaith team, which became the focus of the documentary film Everest: A Climb for Peace.
Everest Peace Project's history-making documentary film is narrated by Orlando Bloom and has been endorsed by His Holiness the Dalai Lama. It has been shown on PBS World outlets. In May 2011 a new team of climbers reached their goal, the Base Camp on Mt. Everest.
The Everest Peace Project is not a religious organization, nor does it have any political agenda. Our mission is to inspire and to show that people from diverse cultural backgrounds and faiths can unite together as friends and accomplish incredible things.
Our climb and our film continue to inspire people from all over the world as a shining example that when people have a common goal and through friendship and teamwork anything is possible, even climbing the tallest mountain in the world together for peace.
This organization welcomes interest from interfaith mountaineers and supporters from around the world! As of July 2017, there are no active climbs planned but EPP hopes to resume its activity in the future.
