Trek for Rights in Nepal with UN Women NC Australia

With stunning Himalayan views, high passes, traditional teahouses, tiny hamlets, prayer flags and hot springs, the Annapurna region is among the best trekking destinations in the world. And as a participant of Trek for Rights, you will experience it all.

Beginning in Kathmandu, you’ll see how locals are striving every day to rebuild their homes and lives from the devastation of the April 2015 earthquakes. Though confronting, it is an experience you will never forget and will illustrate the importance of the funds you’ve raised for UN Women National Committee Australia. With many areas of the city spared from the devastation, you’ll also discover the history and culture of Nepal’s colourful capital city and some of its many UNESCO World Heritage listed sites.

You’ll then escape the city limits, spending the next six days trekking the Annapurna region through verdant valleys at the foot of spectacular mountains. Over terraced rice fields, across clear mountain rivers and into dense rhododendron forest, you’ll trek narrow paths between some of the highest mountains in the world.

This adventure provides a unique and intimate insight into village life in this beautiful area of the Himalayas, close to the magnificent peaks of the Annapurnas, Machapuchare, and Dhauligiri. Trekking in this pristine and unspoilt area, you will reconnect with an ancient culture long left behind by modern civilisation.

You’ll also have the chance visit one of UN Women’s multipurpose centres, spaces set up for women survivors of the earthquakes, to see for yourself the incredible work you’ve helped make possible.

Best of all, you’ll raise vital funds for UN Women to continue to empower women and girls in Nepalese communities.
