The Trek will see a passionate team of supporters take on the Annapurna range of the lower Himalaya. You’ll trek through stunning scenery, following narrow paths between terraced rice fields, rhododendron forests and majestic snow-capped mountains by day and sleep in traditional mountain huts by night. You’ll also discover the history and culture of Nepal’s colourful capital and explore some of its incredible sites. 

Best of all, you’ll trek with Save the Children supporters and raise money to help give all children access to the bright future they deserve. Sound like an adventure for you?

The Trek will take place 7-18 March, 2020. Places are limited. Register now.
