About the trek

Join us in 2023 for this once in a lifetime adventure and explore the Annapurna region in the breath-taking Himalayas of Nepal. The highlight of our challenge will be to summit Poon Hill at sunrise at 3,210m – a majestic peak which offers trekkers an unobscured view of the highest peaks in the Annapurna region.

This is a 5 day trek with 2 days either side for travel, so it’s perfect for all ages and abilities. The minimum age to take part is 18, but 14-17 year olds can take part as long as they’re accompanied by a parent or guardian. Our accommodation whilst on the trek will be local tea houses, offering basic but charming comforts after a day of trekking. For a more detailed itinerary and information about the trek, please download the challenge brochure.

Costs

The costs above include all flights, accommodation, food, porters, guides, permits and some equipment like sleeping bags. Additional costs include airport taxes (£250), travel insurance, some meals while in Kathmandu, your Nepalese visa and tips. You can either fundraise to cover these costs alongside the sponsorship you raise for Hope and Homes for Children, or you can pay these costs yourself, upfront or in instalments.

Sponsorship

Taking on this challenge is the perfect way to fundraise for us, whilst enjoying the spectacular Nepalese Himalayas. With your fundraising we'll be able to keep more vulnerable families together, where their children are safe and loved. With every step you take on this challenge, you’ll be helping to transform these family’s lives forever – now and for generations to come.

This sounds incredible, but I have a few questions

We’d love to speak to you about the challenge, or if you have questions about how to raise the sponsorship or costs. Please call the office on 01722 790 111 or email Catherine at fundraising@hopeandhomes.org
