HOW DOES NEVEREST WORK?

The Kathmandu Neverest Challenge is the repetition of laps up a hill until you reach the height of Mt Everest – 8,848 metres. You can do it as a team or individually.

HOW DOES THE TEAM CHALLENGE WORK?

You can have from 2-20 people per team. Each team member will complete a lap then mark it on the team lap counter. Teams can complete laps together or separately. Each member can complete as many laps as they wish, with the team aiming to complete the entire distance for their location

CAN I JUST DO SOME OF THE CHALLENGE?

Absolutely! Come along and do 1 lap or 50, it’s up to you! Or team up with a group and see how many you can do on the day.

IS THERE A CUT OFF TIME?

The cut-off time for all competitors is 6pm

WHAT ARE WE RAISING FUNDS FOR?

The Kathmandu Neverest Challenge raises funds for the Australian Himalayan Foundation’s programs on education, health and the environment in Nepal, Bhutan and India.

WHAT SHOULD I EAT DURING THE EVENT?

While we will have a sausage sizzle and water available on the day we strongly recommend participants bring their own snacks, food and electrolyte drinks. We recommend you bring food you have used in other endurance events, or food you would eat on a hike.

WHAT SHOULD I BRING?

You will need clothing appropriate to the weather (remember it’s a long day so bring clothing for warm/cool/wet weather); sunscreen; a water bottle; snacks, food and electrolyte drinks; head torch for solo participants; walking poles particularly for solo participants or teams of two.

HOW DO I GET THERE?

CAN WE DO THE CHALLENGE AS A FAMILY?

Yes! This year we have the new Family team option at discounted rates. Remember children under the age of 16 must be accompanied by a supervising adult at all times

CAN YOU LOOK AFTER MY BAGS?

No we don’t look after bags or gear during the event. The organisers bear no responsibility for any valuables or equipment you may have.
