Nepal Himalaya Trek & Hospice Project

November 9 - November 20

This 5-day trek is a great opportunity to witness the culture and tradition in the Nepalese countryside. As we follow the Ghorepani Poon Hill trail you will enjoy the views of the snowy peaks of the Annapurna massif and a highlight will be the awe-inspiring panoramic views which unfold from Poon Hill at sunrise, the highest altitude point of the trek at 3400m.

You will spend two days helping a non-profit hospice care organisation in Kathmandu which offers services and support to terminally ill patients and their families. It was set up by a team of local doctors in 2000 and since then has provided free medicine, therapy and support to those in need. The tasks we expect to be involved with will include basic refurbishment at the hospice, such as repainting and decorating rooms or improving the kitchen or bathroom facilities.

Dates: 9th – 20th November 2019

Non-Refundable Registration Fee: £295

Minimum Sponsorship: £3500 (£1750 comes to the Hospice and £1750 pays for accommodation, meal costs and support staff/vehicles)
