The Umbrella Foundation has rescued over 380 orphaned, trafficked and vulnerable children in Nepal since 2005 and in October 2013 and (separately) March 2014 we invite you to join us in exploring the breathtakingly beautiful area of the Everest region, to take on the adventure of a lifetime trekking in Nepal to reach Everest Base Camp.
First conquered by Tenzing Norgay and Sir Edmund Hillary in 1953, Everest has traditionally been the ultimate goal for mountaineers and trekkers alike. Set alongside several other giants, at 8,848m, Mount Everest is the world’s HIGHEST mountain.
You will be trekking to Everest’s southern face base camp through some of the world’s more spectacular scenery and discovering remote mountain monasteries set against soaring, jagged pinnacles.
This trip offers you a unique opportunity to lean about the culture of the Sherpas in the Khumbu region and also understand why Umbrella are working so hard to combat the negative effects of child trafficking and to reintegrate rescued children to the areas from which they came.
