Teeing off while on a trek? Why not?

High altitude tee offs

Are you teeing off while on a trek? Why not?

Raj Tamang, the founder of Responsible Adventures, came up with the idea of teeing from venues above 5000 meters from as many places as possible. So he has tee-offs from Throrung La pass, five passes above 5000 meters in the Upper Dolpo region, and six tees-off from the Gokyo Lakes and Everest Base camp areas. This is probably a world record of sorts.

He has played 18-hole golf twice and nine-hole golf once. Hence, he isn’t a regular golfer at all. He did this to do something no one else had done.

We collected all the golf balls for those concerned about leaving golf balls in the mountain environment. We even used biodegradable golf balls from Spain in case we lost one.

This project started in September 2016, and the last tee-offs were done in December 2017. Read more
