03 Oct AHF/Kathmandu Summit Club Trek to Nepal
October 3, 2017 - October 15, 2017
We start with sightseeing in Kathmandu before flying to Phaplu, the administrative centre of the Solu Khumbu district. Beginning our trek with visits to some of the educational schools supported by the AHF, we slowly ascend to the Everest region. We spend two nights in the renowned Sherpa village of Namche Bazaar before trekking to Tengboche with mountain views of Everest and Ama Dablam. Morning prayers at Tengboche Monastery before trekking down the valley to Khumjung & Khunde where the original Sir Edmund Hillary school and hospital were constructed.
The April trek will be led by Jackson Bursill, one of the Australian Himalayan Foundation’s Youth Ambassadors. Jackson has represented Australia in cross-country skiing, and is also the creator of Neverest, a hike/cycle fundraising event which in two years has raised over $80,000 in funding for AHF’s programs in Nepal.
