Chatting with Out Adventurer Dominic Gramatte

Dominic Gramatte on Mount Everest

Dominic Gramatte, or Dom as he’s known from his blog DomOnTheGo, is an LGBT adventurer with an impressive resume.

Dom began blogging in 2015 when he was granted a seven month sabbatical from work. He took advantage of the opportunity and has since touched down on six out of the seven continents, conquered Kilimanjaro, navigated Patagonia, camped in the Serengeti and swam in the amazon.

His latest adventure: Everest Base Camp. With Out Adventures’ help, Dom trekked Everest with his partner Robert Green (Rob) for Rob’s 40th birthday this past April.

Although Dom will be posting all of his Everest content on DomOnTheGo in the coming weeks, we’re a notoriously impatient bunch in the Out Adventures’ office.  Naturally, we had to Skype Dom at his home in London, England to get a preview of his Everest adventure.

Training for Everest Base Camp

Mt. Everest Trek

OUT Adventures is hiking to the base of the world’s tallest mountain this October. That may sound overly ambitious to some, but if you’d like to join us, you’ve got plenty of time to shape up with our 12-Week Program.

Admittedly, it will feel more like boot camp than your typical holiday prep (there’s no tanning booths in the regimen). However, if you follow our tips, your little jaunt towards Mt Everest will be as leisurely as a schlep through one of the world’s most unforgiving corners can be.

Just the Tips: Kathmandu

Kathmandu

To get at the beating heart of Kathmandu, we love getting lost in Old City’s alleyways and discovering unexpected temples, secret gardens and markets. Or we’ll rickshaw over to the backpacker district of Thamel to trade stories with trekkers and climbers, many of whom are just back from conquering Everest.

Unfortunately, Kathmandu was devastated by the 2015 Nepal earthquake. Consequently, the historic sites we’d normally recommend are still being reconstructed.

KICK OFF 2018 ABOARD THE RV MEKONG PANDAW

Have a closer look at some of the vessel’s highlights.

What To Pack for the Kilimanjaro Gay Climb With OUT Adventures

gay-travel-newsletter-tanzania-kili-packing

If you’re planning to tackle the Kilimanjaro Gay Climb with us, things can quickly get heavier than a celebrity breakup if you don’t pack smart. Keep your baggage under 20kg/44lb, because anything beyond that is likely to be left behind in Lima. You should also bring something smaller for day trips to carry water, your camera, and any souvenirs you pick up along the way.
