overview

Take on this spectacular 11 day adventure through the Indian Himalayas, up to the Singalila Ridge along strenuous trails up to over 3600m. Our effort is well worth it, with views of the mighty snow-capped Kangchenjunga (8586m) rising above us to the north and of Everest further in the distance. Over our 6 days trek, we ascend over high mountain ridges in the National Park, through valleys with small rural villages, then camp under the stars each evening. At Sammanden, we experience sunrise over the highest mountains in the world, lighting up snowy peaks and valleys around us. Our tough challenge finishes in the captivating town of Darjeeling, high in the hills, where we have the option of taking a trip on one of the last remaining famous “Toy Trains”, an original steam train running on the UNESCO World Heritage Railway before celebrating our trekking achievement together, a fantastic end to our adventure. 

Upon registering on to this fully inclusive challenge, you will be provided with a challenge pack with all essential information for your challenge. If you are raising money for a charity, Action Challenge will sort out all formalities for you, as well as offer you pre-challenge briefings and training weekends in the UK. As a team we will board a flight to Delhi, ready to begin our adventure together.
