This travel company wants to pay you to visit Mount Everest

A travel company is looking to take a budding videographer on a tour of Mount Everest to capture the experience on film.

GoKo Travel intends to pay someone £150 to document their free 17-day expedition of the world’s highest mountain.

The videographer will start their journey in Kathmandu with a small group, taking in the sights before a 13-day hike to Lukla.

The chosen applicant will walk through Sherpa villages, stunning monasteries and over picturesque suspension bridges en route to Everest Base Camp.

Nights will be spent recuperating in cosy teahouses, dining on Nepalese cuisine and mixing with fellow travellers.

The trek is one of the world’s most impressive – it’s a non-summit hike but the base camp is higher than Kilimanjaro.

The brand will share the videographer’s work across their website and social media channels.

They’ll be expected to capture footage of the journey, the incredible scenery and other travellers’ stories.

Anyone can apply – but you’ll need a basic understanding of video production.

GoKo says that its ideal applicant has a love of travel, a keen sense of adventure and who is friendly and open to meeting new people.

The trip will go ahead once travel restrictions lift, and the videos captured will help the company kickstart adventure travel after the pandemic.

Applications for the role close at 11.59pm on Wednesday 3rd March, and details of how to apply can be found here.
