Climate change is already affecting Nepalese communities as glaciers melt, monsoon patterns change and crop yields diminish.

This is your chance to challenge yourself on the ultimate alpine trek and to take action against climate change. On this adventure, you will trek for 13 days through forest, across rivers and along narrow mule tracks to Everest Base Camp—the gateway to the highest mountain in the world. As we trek, accompanied by a local Himalayan Climate Initiative representative, you’ll witness firsthand the toll climate change is taking on the Himalayas and local villages.

With our incredible challenge complete, we’ll return to Nepal’s capital city, Kathmandu, to volunteer with HCI. Together with locals, we will work on community sustainability projects and have the opportunity to learn from young leaders in Nepal.
