About the event

Looking for an adventure that will live with you forever?

Your once in a lifetime trek to Everest Base Camp to defeat meningitis is waiting for you.

Walk in the shadow of the world's highest mountain as you trek to the iconic Everest Base Camp, beginning your adventure in vibrant and charming Kathmandu before setting off into the heart of the Nepal Himalaya. Traverse spectacular gorges, hike across suspension bridges and past majestic peaks, taking in the magical landscapes that surround you on this epic route, which should be on the bucket list of every adventurer. 

This is a multi-day trek to significant altitude (5,645m above sea level), led by experienced guides, and, although acclimatisation is slow and gradual, you will feel the effects of altitude. Tough, but truly rewarding, this challenge will leave you with memories to last a lifetime.
