Pass through breathtaking mountain scenery, original Buddhist carvings and the legendary monastery of the Tengboche in support of Marie Curie nurses.
Experience day-to-day life on the world's tallest mountain and help Marie Curie nurses care for people with terminal illness
We follow the contours of valleys along glacial rivers, we trek up through stunning rhododendron forests and pass through some of the highest villages on earth. The spirit of the mountains is intertwined with the spirit of the Sherpa people; colourful prayer flags flutter in the wind, prayer wheels spin and intricately carved mani stones line our route.
This challenge will be tough and exhilarating, but it will be fantastically rewarding and is suitable for anyone with a bit of grit, determination and teamwork. The majority of people will sign up by themselves and meet people on the challenge - so don't worry if you're on your own.
This could be your challenge of this special year! Signing up now gives you plenty of time to prepare, train and fundraise.
"Could not have asked for a better group"
"I could not have asked for a better group of people to trek with. At different points on the trek you would have a chance to discover what inspired everyone else to get involved." Brenda trekked the Great Wall of China for Marice Curie
"It's worth it!"
"It’s worth it to raise so much cash for charity. Marie Curie Nurses looked after my dad when he had cancer... we knew they were there if needed." Nikki trekked Vietnam, Cambodia and Sahara for Marie Curie
