Climb to the summit of the world's highest peak with Lego Everest Adventure!
About this creation
[Main pic above] Beware the dangerous crevasses and shifting ice that make the KHUMBU ICEFALL one of the most intimidating parts of the mountain! Avoid the falling seracs to reach the safety of Camp I, located 18,000 feet up the slopes of Everest. The set includes two climbers and a trusty Sherpa guide, ready to take on the deadly fields of ice and snow. The main play feature of this set is a hidden tile, which when removed will trigger an avalanche! Also included is a tent with folding awnings and easy-off top, camp stove and lots of gear, a ladder to climb through the Icefall, and a hidden oxygen cache at the top. 295 pieces.
After weeks of intense climbing, it's finally time to make a bid for THE SUMMIT! 29,029 feet up, the Earth curves away into the horizon and the mighty Himalayas stretch out as far as the eye can see, all other peaks dwarfed by the mighty Everest! Carefully navigate the Knife Ridge, scale the imposing Hillary Step and reach the highest point on the planet! The set's play feature is a button which will topple the rocks of the Hillary Step when pushed. Includes a Sherpa guide and two climbers with plenty of gear to complete the ascent. 441 pieces.
EVEREST EXPRESS is your ticket to the highest point on Earth! Includes pilot, mechanic and climber; airplane (modeled after the de Havilland Canada Twin Otters operated by Yeti Airlines) with room for two minifigures and cargo; and maintenance vehicle with tools. Climber comes with parka, camera and suitcase. Plane has easily removable top for interior access, opening boarding ramp, spinning propellers and turning nose wheel. 203 pieces.
Compared to the rest of the journey, this place is downright cozy! EVEREST BASE CAMP includes two climbers and an expedition guide; two tents with opening flaps and easy-off top; and base headquarters with plenty of gear, including telescope, camp stove, radio, mugs, binoculars, weather radar, and oxygen tanks. 133 pieces.

the theme is great, the Sherpa guide was a nice touch, but, the vehicles could be better, and I d only buy these kits if there where polar bears included, I love em!
Thanks, the vehicles are really just designed like any other basic Lego City vehicle would be - I still tried to make them as realistic as possible. The challenge about building this theme for CUUSOO was that there really aren't many vehicles to include, and most Lego sets seem like they come with a vehicle of some kind. These are more about terrain. I'd love to include some polar bears, but unfortunately they don't live in the Himalayas!
