Teams work together as a whole to lead an expedition to the top of Mount Everest.


Teams try to get their clients to the top of Mount Everest and back to base camp safely during a 20-day expedition. They have to think about a lot of things, like how fit the clients are, the weather, the best way to get to the top, acclimatization, oxygen use, setting up tents, and strategies to beat the other teams. Each day of the expedition, important information is sent to their team's tablet. Teams race against each other to make quick, smart, and calm decisions. As there isn't much room in each height zone, teams that wait too long will be stuck on a less-than-ideal path or won't be able to move at all.

Along the way, teams also have to do a number of physical challenges, such as setting up a pop-up tent in a set amount of time, climbing a harness while wearing a blindfold, and stuffing a sleeping bag. Teams must also decide what their guide will need to carry: tents, oxygen tanks, or clients. Clients earn points for their team as they move higher up the mountain peak, but if they don't bring enough supplies, they could get sick from not getting used to the altitude or even die, which would be very bad.

Peak Performance

Outcomes of Learning

Peak Performance is an emotionally engaging, hands-on learning tool that is meant to change people's understanding and attitude about many parts of their business and personal lives.

Research shows that the gamification method helps people learn in less time and in a way that sticks with them. It does this by using interesting themes, tactile parts, and fun connections to the business world. It has become a widely accepted way to help people learn and grow at work.

Participants use reflective observation to figure out what happened during the team-building activity. Then they are asked to think of ways that these things happen in real life. By doing this, people can change their behavior in a way that lasts and works.

We run this team-building game at Opearl Events in Vietnam, Cambodia, and Myanmar. Send us a message at if you'd like a proposal and quote for this. Thank you a bunch!
