Sir Edmund Hillary’s Himalayan Trust and Kathmandu are challenging you to climb 8848m – the height of Everest – this May to help remote mountain communities in Nepal.

You can climb, run, walk or bike it. Complete it solo or share the climb between a team. Go hard out and tackle it in one weekend, or spread the challenge over the month. It’s up to you!

If climbing’s not your thing, we challenge you to get creative in reaching 8848 during May. You could swim 8848m, read 8848 pages of a book or even bake 8848 cupcakes!

CHANGE LIVES IN NEPAL

However you choose to take on the Summit Challenge, every dollar you raise will help provide quality education, vital healthcare and safe drinking water for remote communities in Nepal – one of the poorest countries in the world.

FUNDRAISING MADE EASY

Register now to set up your personal online fundraising page. You’ll be able to track your height on your fundraising page, track your fundraising against your goal, and share your progress with family and friends.

Plus, we’ll be with you every step of the way to help make your fundraising as easy and effective as possible.

As an extra incentive, the first 100 people to start fundraising will receive a free Summit Challenge T-shirt from our sponsor Kathmandu.

THE DIFFERENCE YOU WILL MAKE

By taking on the Himalayan Trust Summit Challenge, you will open up new opportunities for young people in the Himalayan region through quality education – providing training for teachers, scholarships for local children and resources for classrooms. 

You will help build water systems to provide safe drinking water and to increase local incomes from agriculture. You will bring life-saving healthcare for new babies and their mothers in remote areas.

BE PART OF THE LEGACY

This May, 65 years after Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay reached the summit of Everest, you can help continue Sir Ed’s life-changing work in the Everest region of Nepal.

Sir Ed founded the Himalayan Trust in the 1960s to improve life for the people who helped make his Himalayan expeditions possible. 

From building the very first schools, hospitals, bridges and water taps in the region, the Himalayan Trust continues to work with remote mountain communities in one of the poorest countries in the world.

“It is not the mountain we conquer, but ourselves.” Sir Edmund Hillary
