Put your faith into action and climb up a 4997 metre Himalayan peak to support the work of AIDSLink Nepal with families living with HIV and AIDS.

The trip: 4 - 17 November 2019

Fly into Kathmandu and stay at the Training Centre. Visit the HIV and AIDS Care Centre in Kathmandu before traveling north. The trek is up to a height of 4000 Metres to reach the Langtang Valley. There you will take on the main challenge of climbing a 4997m mountain. Throughout the journey you will see and learn about the country, experience the situation in remote villages, see earthquake relief projects and meet Nepali Community Leaders.

Experienced team members will accompany you on this trip.

The basic cost is £440 for meals, permits, accommodation and Nepalese travel.

This excludes UK travel, flights, visa and insurance.

For this trip, we ask you to raise one pound for every metre in altitude you reach. This would mean seeking to raise up to a total of £4,997.

If you would like you can also include in this total the cost of the trek, your flights, visa and insurance etc. That would make your actual fundraising target around £3,700 which would go to support AIDSLink Nepal’s work families living with HIV & AIDS. By coincidence the Staring height of the actual trek is at around 1,300 Meters so the actual height you will climb is 3,700 Metres.
