Find yourself trekking in Nepal for charity to the gateway of the highest peak in the world: Mount Everest
On this once-in-a-lifetime adventure, you will trek to the gateway of the highest peak in the world—Mount Everest.
But first you must experience the delightfully disarming sensory overload that is Kathmandu—Nepal’s bustling capital city. Fill your senses with the sights, sounds and smells of a city simultaneously hurtling towards modernity while stoically maintaining its traditional religious and cultural uniqueness.
From a hive of activity to the serenity of the Himalayas, for 12 days you will trek through alpine meadows, into birch and rhododendron forest, across rivers and along narrow mule tracks between snow-capped mountains.
By day you will experience the majesty of the Himalayas together with a team of local guides and sherpas. At night you will fall asleep in traditional lodges and teahouses in remote Nepalese villages.
To celebrate a successful adventure, you and your team will return to Kathmandu to feast on delicious fare at Bricks Café, a local institution and the perfect place to commemorate your shared achievements.
