The Himalayan Trust and World Expeditions are thrilled to announce this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to visit the stunning Everest region and assist with the Trust’s rebuild work in Solukhumbu.
The Himalayan Trust Nepal Rebuild Challenge 2016 is a 17-day trek in one of the most spectacular parts of the world. The trek includes visits to Khumjung school, where Sir Ed build the first classroom more than 50 years ago, and the famous Khunde hospital, which the Himalayan Trust founded in 1966. Two days will be spent in Chaurikharka with the Trust’s General Manager Prue Smith, helping to repair the local high school.
Other highlights include a day exploring Namche Bazaar, a chance to visit Thyangboche monastery, Ama Dablam base camp and breathtaking views of Mt Everest and the surrounding peaks.
The trek will take place in April 2016 – one year on from the first devastating earthquake that affected millions of people across Nepal.
