Charity Challenges The Himalayas

Why choose the Himalayas?

The breathtaking scenery of the Himalayas has made this stunning mountain range a draw for charity treks for decades. You also have plenty of route options should you wish to take a fundraising group to this part of the world. In Nepal, you can choose to visit the Mount Everest region, however Annapurna is considered to be a more beautiful area to walk in. You also have the option to walk the Himalayans in the Sikkim and West Bengal regions or India. With more flight options and better flight prices from Dublin than ever before, Himalayan treks no longer need to involve extremely high fundraising targets, making it easier for you to find participants willing to fundraise for your organisation.

Top Tips

On our recommendation, staying in local Tea Houses will provide you with accommodation, hot meals, local knowledge and security. Tea Houses are small family run lodges that accommodate trekkers along the routes. It is also a unique insight in to Nepali culture and gives you the opportunity to try local delicacies and brush up on your Nepali!
