Be part of the incredible Leeds RAG expedition to Base Camp 18,175 ft. up the world’s highest mountain. No previous hiking experience required.

The Everest Base Camp trek is a bucket-list experience and one which will strongly feature in your memories of your time at Leeds. Not only will you have achieved a true feat for charity, on the way you’ll have the chance to undertake project work and see first-hand what the charity Moving Mountains Nepal has achieved in these areas.

The money raised by this challenge will help to rebuild in areas and for communities most affected by this year’s earthquake

This is a once in a lifetime challenge!

 “Trekking to Everest base camp has to be one of my greatest achievements during my time at Leeds, and I gained immense satisfaction from promoting and then having a hand in the work the charity does. RAG were fantastic throughout, and the whole experience from meeting lots of new people to experiencing the lifestyle of the local Sherpa people is one I can’t recommend enough.” Danielle Coffey, 2012 Participant/ 2013 Team Leader
