Join our team and trek through breathtakingly beautiful scenery to reach Everest Base Camp and wonder in awe at the highest point on our Earth.

Nepal is a country in a league of its own with breathtakingly beautiful scenery, a fascinating culture and friendly people. Meeting the villagers whilst trekking through this landlocked gem of a nation is one of its greatest pleasures. Your route takes you via the Sherpa capital of Namche Bazaar through beautiful valleys, dense forests and across glacial rivers, enjoying tantalising glimpses of the mighty Everest before we reach our goal of Base Camp.

This is an open challenge, so you’ll be taking part with a group of like-minded people fundraising for a range of charities. You’ll still receive the same level of support as on our bespoke challenges, and with Discover Adventure’s highly experienced team you’re in good hands.

Your support means our nurses can be here for those affected now and we can fund vital world-leading research and campaign for change. Whether you’re trekking for someone affected by pancreatic cancer, in memory of a loved one or for everyone affected by pancreatic cancer, every step you take will help to transform the future.

Become part of Team Pancreatic Cancer UK, and together we can transform the future for everyone affected by pancreatic cancer.
