Task: Trek for five days in the stunning Mahalangur mountains in sight of Everest. This will be followed by a three day community project to help rectify the devastating earthquake damage at the Manju Shree School.
Fundraising Target: £135,000 in total.
The Nepal Trek is the perfect challenge for any adventurer. We have teamed up with World Expeditions to put together a bespoke ‘off the beaten track’ experience which includes five days of trekking in the spectacular Mahalangur mountains and three days of rolling your sleeves up and working with the local community school to help rectify some of the damage caused by the destructive earthquake the region experienced in 2015.
Once your place has been confirmed, our tour operator World Expeditions will provide you with all the crucial information needed to prepare for your trek. Springboard will also be on hand to support you with fundraising. Once you register, Springboard will be in regular contact with you and we encourage trekkers to attend our ‘trekker socials’ that take place in London on a regular basis starting in September. These provide the opportunity for trekkers to get to know their fellow companions and support each other with fundraising ideas or group planned fundraising challenges. Last year’s ‘Calendar Girls’ fundraiser was born out of such get-togethers.
