Annapurna Circuit Challenge
Trek Annapurna Circuit - April 2018
We are pleased to offer this spectacular trip to those adventurous types who wish to raise money for our projects and at the same time have an unforgettable experience in Nepal. Trek the famous Annapurna region and spend time in Kathmandu and Pokhara, as well as visiting one of our projects in Nepal to see directly the work we are doing out there. Participants are required to fundraise for this trip, as well as booking their own flights to Kathmandu. A £200 deposit is required to sign up. The trek is non-technical, but we recommend a decent level of fitness! We will be able to guide you through everything, from what gear you need to take, to help with fundraising advice. Read on for more detailed info!
The adventure starts in Kathmandu...
Day one, arrive in Kathmandu
Participants are required to book their own flights to Kathmandu, to arrive on the date specified. We offer this flexibility because it makes it easier for people to fly from wherever is most convenient for them, wherever in the world they are coming from. Upon arrival, you will be met at the airport by either your team leader or one of our Nepalese partners, and taken to the hotel. We will spend the first day recovering from the long journey and exploring Kathmandu.
Day Two, school visit
On our second day we will take a short journey from Kathmandu to visit one of the schools that Build With Nepal is supporting. You will be able to see first hand the work that your fundraising has contributed to.
Day Three, the trek starts...
No technical climbing experience required
but some basic fitness is recommended!
