What is an Open Challenge?
An Open Challenge is a charity fundraising trip, with a pre-planned departure date, in which supporters of our charity can participate. It is open to individuals, or to groups who have joined to work together and support The Youth Cancer Trust.
Often on an Open Challenge you may have the opportunity to work to support a cause in the actual destination country.
There are lots of different challenges to choose from, such as cycling, sledding or trekking, which take place in countries all over the world.

Everest Base Camp Trek
This 12 day adventure is the classic Everest Base Camp and Kala Pattar trek. The trek includes two important rest days to allow you to acclimatise to the changes in altitude and to do some local exploring. You will be trekking through the homelands of the Sherpa people, among their villages and Buddhist monasteries, with distant views of Everest and neighbouring Ama Dablam, considered by many to be among the most beautiful mountains in Nepal. One rest day is spent at Namche Bazaar, the bustling market town in the heart of the Sherpa country, and the other at Pheriche, a cluster of houses set among the high summer grazing pasture of the region. Without doubt, the highlight for most will be the awe-inspiring views which unfold from the summit of Kala Pattar – the chaotic ice sculptures of the Khumbu Glacier, Nuptse and the south-west face of Everest itself. Each day’s trek is between 5 and 8 hours in duration.
