Everest Base Camp Trek

Gaze up at the world’s highest mountain and trek through a tranquil mountain range of gentle giants. Explore Nepal’s mystical capital Kathmandu and witness awe-inspiring panoramic views

Overview of the event

Dates: 20 February to 9 March 2025

Follow in the footsteps of the great explorers and join us for an unforgettable trek to the foot of the highest mountain in the world, Mount Everest, standing tall at 8,848m. We’ll trek from the picturesque village of Lukla, nestled in the Nepalese Himalayas, to the famous base camp of Mount Everest and back again! Our route allows us to acclimatise gently before reaching high altitude scenery, as it leads us through Sherpa country to this tranquil mountain range of gentle giants. We’ll discover some of the most breathtaking scenery imaginable from start to finish on this unforgettable trek as we make our way to the colourful prayer flags of Everest Base Camp.

The positive impact the group has had on me is huge. I don’t feel so isolated any more. If the support had not been available I would still be facing depression and loneliness, unable to look after myself and over-thinking things.

"I enjoyed seeing my fundraising increase on a weekly basis, the events that I organised pushed me out of my comfort zone, I talked to people about Mental Health in a way that I would never have done otherwise."

"Mental Health UK was a friendly partner to have. I received lots of motivational encouragement via email which maybe doesn’t sound like much but knowing people are rooting for you really helps"
