Getting there

The Kathmandu Neverest Challenge Brisbane is held at Camp Mountain Picnic Ground off Mount Nebo Rd. IMPORTANT Google maps will try to take you to the bottom of the hill. Make sure you turn in off Mount Nebo Road at the TOP of the hill.

By CAR – we strongly encourage you to carpool with your team or supporters. Limited parking is available at the Camp Mountain picnic area, there is also parking available on the verge along Camp Mountain Rd.

By PUBLIC TRANSPORT – a bit tricky. Try asking for a ride on the Neverest facebook page.

By TAXI – from the city takes around 35 minutes



“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 600 entrants each year. In 2020 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.
