You’ll make your way to the foot of the world’s highest mountain, and see many more stunning peaks along the way. You’ll be well taken care of, with great food provided, and support given by local guides and traditional Sherpas. You’ll stay in local tea houses and lodges throughout the trek so no camping required! After a good night’s sleep, you’ll be ready for the exciting days ahead…
One of the great things about this particular trek, is that you are given plenty of time to acclimatize to the height at which you’re walking (over 5,000 metres at the highest point!) so you’re much more likely to be able to complete the trek, unlike some other trips. During this time you’ll have time to explore the local areas or take some time out to relax.
So if you’ve got a sense of adventure, and want to show your support of Stonewall in a LGBT friendly country, this is the trek for you! Will you trek for equality?

How do I join Stonewall at Everest Basecamp Trek?
Option A – Sponsorship
Registration fee = £399
Minimum sponsorship = £3,120
You will need to send Stonewall 80% (£2496) of the minimum sponsorship at least 11 weeks prior to departure. The remaining 20% (£624) needs to be sent to us within four weeks of completing the challenge. Remember you don’t just have to ask people to sponsor you to make up the sponsorship amount. For example, you could hold a cake sale at work, organise a quiz in your local or organise raffle to help you get to the grand total.
Option B – Self-fund
Registration fee = £399
Challenge balance = £1,560
10 weeks prior to departure, an invoice will be sent to you for the remaining challenge balance. This must be paid no later than eight weeks prior to departure. Although there is no minimum sponsorship, we suggest a minimum target of £1,000 as this is an extremely demanding challenge!
