Everyone at Action Tutoring is extremely proud of Adan and his team for completing their incredible fundraising trek in Nepal. We were overwhelmed by their support for Action Tutoring and it certainly wasn’t an easy challenge, but they all did phenomenally well.
The team shared their highlights from the trip for you to read…
“Langtang was a great place to visit with friends looking for something off the beaten track – physically challenging, a spectacular variety of scenery and a daily dose of mini-adventures from high river crossings to changeable weather.
The highlight for me was the people. They live in a tough environment, in challenging conditions and must work hard daily to meet their family’s needs. In the face of all this hardship, they are hospitable to outsiders, quick to laugh and supportive to others. I hope I’ve brought back some of their inspiring community spirit, good humour and generous nature.
Nepal, I’ll be returning as soon as possible for more of the same, thanks for a great adventure with great people!”
“For me, it was one of those adventures that changed my view of myself and what I could achieve. I have rarely pushed myself to such physical and mental limits. Crossing the Laurebina Pass may not necessarily be much for an experienced mountaineer but it was definitely my Everest!”
“An amazing trek with stunning views and great company. I can’t wait to do more. It was particularly poignant crossing the landslides following the 2015 earthquake, knowing that our porter had lost his wife and children in the landslide that destroyed Langtang.”
“Looking back the trek was amazing, the varied scenery from beautiful vistas to colourful rhododendron forests was remarkable. All the local people we met were welcoming and friendly as were the other trekkers. It wasn’t all a walk in the park though, there were a few days that were tough going… from the steep climbs in blistering heat to the treacherous icy paths over the high passes, but the variety made it a great trek, as well as the company and of course the local rum!”
