Trek Nepal and Community Project
New Date - Saturday 8 to Wednesday 19 October 2022
Celebrate the hospice’s 30th anniversary with a special overseas challenge to Nepal in October 2022. Draped along the greatest heights of the Himalaya, Nepal is where the ice-cold of the mountains meets the steamy heat of the Indian plains.
The 12 day challenge will see you following the banks of Bhurungdi Khola River, ascending Poon hill for a spectacular sunrise over the Annapurna Massif, Dhaulagiri and enjoying views of the snow-capped peaks of Annapurna and Machapuchare.
Along with completing an amazing challenge and supporting your local hospice, you will also be able to give something back to the Nepal community. The first two days of the challenge will be spent assisting with a local hospice project, Hospice Nepal, in Kathmandu. The organisation was set up by a team of local doctors in 2000, and since then has provided free-of-charge medicines, therapies and support to those in need.
During these two days you will be assisting with some basic refurbishments at the hospice, such as repainting rooms and improving kitchen or bathroom facilities.
