Join us through the 2021 Himalayan 4997 trek. Put your faith in action and climb up to a 4997 metre Himalayan peak for the least reached! Experience first-hand, increase awareness and raise finances for AIDSLink work with families living with HIV and AIDS in this country.

This remote Himalayan country has many unreached people groups. Millions are untouched by the transformational impact of the gospel. We are working hard to see vibrant communities of Jesus followers among these least reached, and invite you to become part of this.

Each trekker is expected to raise funds; our aim as a trekking team is to raise £15,000 towards the work of OM in the Himalayas among those that have never heard of Jesus.
