2 YOUR ADVENTURE STARTS HERE NEPAL This incredible challenge takes place in the foothills of the mighty Himalayas offering an unforgettable journey through a region with some of the finest trekking in the world. Brian Morrison/Marie Curie Nepal TAKE ON THE CHALLENGE OF A LIFETIME FOR MARIE CURIE We re here for people living with any terminal illness, and their families our work is only possible thanks to amazing supporters like you. When you challenge yourself in Nepal, you ll be helping our nurses provide expert care, guidance and support. Every step you take will help people living with a terminal illness, and their loved ones, get the most from the time they have left together. 2

3 WHERE YOUR MONEY GOES 180 pays for a Marie Curie Nurse to look after someone living with a terminal illness overnight in their own home. 350 pays for five people to attend day therapy at a Marie Curie Hospice, benefitting from gentle exercise, emotional support and more. 400 pays for someone to stay in a Marie Curie Hospice for 24 hours, so that they can receive the hands-on care they need in their final days. 3

4 DAY 1 Depart UK DAY 2 Arrive in Kathmandu mid-afternoon and transfer to the Summit Hotel. The hotel is situated on a hillside and there are great views from the terrace looking across the city and to the Himalaya in the distance. What an experience!! The trek was a fantastic challenge and I have met friends for life. Marie Curie trekker 4

5 DAY 3 Kathmandu Sundarijal Chisopani 6 hours trekking We make an early start from Kathmandu to the starting point of our trek at Sundarijal. From Sundarijal the trail climbs steeply up to the ridge line bordering the northern side of the Kathmandu valley. Crossing the ridge via a small pass at Bunlang we drop down to the small village of Chisopani where we camp at 2215m. DAY 4 Chisopani Gul Bhanjang 6-7 hours trekking The day starts with a steep descent to the village of Pati Bhanjang where we stop for a short rest before another steep climb up through the village of Chipling where we break for lunch. This afternoon our ascent continues until we reach the shoulder of Jogin Danda. The trail now levels off traversing through rhododendron and mixed forest until a gradual descent to the camp site at Gul Bhanjang at 2130m. Thinkstock 5

6 DAY 5 Gul Bhanjyang Ichok 7 hours trekking We pass through the village of Gul Bhanjyang, after a steep but fairly short climb we arrive at an Alpine type meadow with excellent views of the Jugal Himal to the north. From here it is a short distance to Kutumsang where we stop for lunch. After lunch the trail makes a big traversing loop under the slopes of Hille danda, passing through a mix of forest and farm land. Tonight we camp outside the small hamlet of Ichok at 2200m.

After lunch it is a three hour steep walk up to the large Sherpa village of Tarkeghyang. The climb will be broken by visiting the impressive Gompa (temple) at Nakotegoan. Tarkeghyang at 2270m is the largest of the villages in Helambu and where we will be camping tonight. DAY 7 Tarkeghyang Thimbu Kathmandu 3-4 hours trekking This morning we start by heading south. The character of the landscape and the people changes back to that of the lower foothills as we leave the hills behind us. Passing through several Bahun and Chettri villages we make a final descent to the end trek point at Thimbu where we meet our vehicles and start our transfer back to Kathmandu for our celebration dinner.
