The magnificence of some of the highest peaks in the world, spectacular scenery and fascinating culture whilst bringing the gift of clean water to thousands across the world.
Trek through thick rhododendron forests, pass mountainside villages nestled high above picturesque rice terraces and gain an authentic view of local life whilst surrounded by some of the most magnificent mountain panoramas on the planet with views over the great peaks and glaciers of the Himalayas beyond the tree line.
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 is a demanding trek in mountainous terrain but at relatively low altitudes. You'll have six long days on your feet on tougher terrain. It's designed to be a challenge, so you will need to train beforehand. The fitter you are, the more you will enjoy the experience.
You'll be camping in a shared, expedition-style tent with delicious food, a sunset bar, starry skies and a great atmosphere!
The funds you raise will go directly to WaterAid's Focus Country Project (FCP) in Nepal which aims to repair or build 30 systems over the course of three years. The project will reach 6000 people with clean water in two remote municipalities and work in local schools, bringing clean water to 2000 school students.
Additionally the project will build toilets and handwashing facilities in schools, as well as rooms for girls to safely manage their periods. These facilities will serve 2000 students in 20 schools.
"Great to see where the money gets spent"
"It was a truly incredible experience, we saw some amazing countryside, we met some incredible people and it was great to also see where some of the money from WaterAid gets spent" David Hitchcock, WaterAid Trek
