You can leave gear at the top of the hill, there will always be volunteers/AHF staff in attendance, but please note we do not take any responsibility for your gear.

Transport

 

By CAR – we strongly encourage you to carpool with your team or supporters. Parking is available on John Oxley Drive near the registration area, if this parking fills up there is also space in the surrounding streets. As this is a residential area we ask that you are considerate in your parking (ie no parking across driveways!).

 

By PUBLIC TRANSPORT – take bus number 281 from Chatswood Railway Station to Maitland Reserve on Prahran Ave, approximately 200m from the registration area.

 

By TAXI – from the city takes around 35-45 minutes.

History

 

“Everesting” is running or walking laps of a hill to simulate climbing Everest. The Kathmandu Neverest Challenge is organised by and is a fundraiser for the Australian Himalayan Foundation for their work educating kids and training teachers in rural Nepal. Neverest began in 2015 following the devastating earthquakes in Nepal, and has grown to accommodate over 500 entrants each year. In 2019 Neverest will be staged in 4 unique locations.

The Australian Himalayan Foundation is proud to have Kathmandu as major sponsor of the Kathmandu Neverest Challenge.

Kathmandu contributes not just to people going up and down a mountain for hours, but also to kids in Nepal getting a better education, and finding new paths to take in life.

Huge thanks to Kathmandu for their generosity and support of the Event Series and of the Australian Himalayan Foundation’s work in Nepal.
