Nepal, solidarity trekking in Annapurna
A great trek that meets one of the most “historic” eight thousand of the whole Himalaya and combines it with a solidarity experience. Annapurna was in fact the first eight thousand to be conquered by man. The French Herzog and Lachenal reached the top on 3rd June 1950, thus kicking off the great race for the eight thousand, a race that in just over 10 years led to the ascent of all the mountains higher than eight thousand meters. This program was born from the desire to make a small but significant contribution to a solidarity project started for some time now by the association “Step by step”, which has determinedly dedicated itself to the cause of a Nepalese school that was hit hard by the 2015 earthquake. The trekking program is preceded by a visit to the school and for those who wish to participate in solidarity purchases for the school during the first days in Kathmandu. The participation fee for the trip will be donated to the association to contribute to the budget available for purchases. https://youtu.be/5WB1PU0Xg8I

Given the particular nature of our travel proposals, the daily programs should be considered as a guide track. A series of variable factors that distinguish travel to high mountain regions in remote areas (prohibitive weather conditions, landslides, interruption of communications, etc.) can jeopardize the safety of the participants and consequently impose changes to the planned itineraries. It is the faculty of the organizer to make all those changes to the program that security needs require or where they are forced by other events (such as cancellation of flights and the like).
In particular, in case of cancellation of domestic flights, any helicopter and / or overland protections are subject to a supplement.
