The Wetherby Wanderers are back for their latest challenge… Mount Everest Base Camp Trek 2020!!
Paul, John, Jon and Vicki will be lacing up their hiking boots once more to take on the breath-taking panoramas of the incredible Mount Everest Base Camp Trek.
In just over six weeks’ time, the team will be flying out to Kathmandu, in an attempt to scale the dizzying heights of this tough but enchantingly beautiful trek. They will begin at the mountain town of Lukla, up through rhododendron and fir forests, across pretty streams and creaking glaciers, past peaceful rural monasteries, shrines and prayer wheels and through unending and unforgettable panoramas, to the mighty Mount Everest Base Camp. At a staggering climb of 5160 meters across stunning mountain vistas; this will certainly be one of their toughest challenges to date.
The trek will cover a total of 17 days and the team are committed to raising as much money as possible for their chosen charities. The trip itself has been solely funded by the team and all proceeds raised for this event will 100% go directly to the chosen charities. If you’d like to make a donation all the charities have been listed below with links to each fundraising page. Every penny counts so no matter how small, each donation will make a huge difference to these fantastic causes!
We would like to wish them all the very best of luck!
