About the event
Step out of your comfort zone and up to the stunning heights of the Himalayas on this awesome trek for mental health charities. Led by your wonderful local challenge guide, you’ll follow a beautiful route from Pokhara to Poon Hill in Nepal.
Together, you will walk alongside streams deep in valleys, through enchanting forests bright with rhododendrons and into charming Himalayan trading towns and villages. You’ll push yourself to the peak for an amazing cause, while making friends and discovering the friendly culture of the Nepalese mountain people. Once we reach the top of Poon Hill (3,210m), we’re rewarded with a true – and literal – highlight of this challenge: watching the sun rise over surrounding peaks, painting the spectacular mountain range with the colour of day.
Our once in a lifetime challenge ends in Kathmandu with a special opportunity to meditate in a monastery: the perfect calm after your epic climb.
This trek is challenging, unforgiving, and life-changing. You can sign up by clicking on the sign me up button which will take you to the Dream Challenges website to book your place.
