Everest Basecamp, Khumbu Region, Nepal. Spring 2017.
Vibeke was caught in the avalanche of 2015. Once safely evacuated from Camp Two to Basecamp she found her way back to Kathmandu to be greeted by the scale of the devastation and witness the very real need for help.
Sacrificing her season, and with an approval granted for a sabbatical from her role within the Norwegian Army, she remained in Nepal for a further two years to set up a series of charities and lend aid to several schools.
