Dalai Lama Trek 2020

Oct 22, 2020 @ 8:00 am - Nov 1, 2020 @ 5:00 pm

In 2020, at St Kentigern Hospice we will be celebrating our 25th anniversary of care for the communities we serve. As part of the celebrations we are inviting you, to join us as we embark on a great overseas challenge, The Dalai Lama Trek

The Challenge

Our  challenge begins in Dharamsala, where the Dalai Lama and the centre of the Tibetan Community are situated – the heart of the world’s highest mountains .

We have time to spend in this fascinating town before we set off on foot to explore this stunning region. This special charity challenge incorporates India’s best sights and sounds.  Our 5 day trek takes us through the Kingdom of Gaddi – a semi-nomadic race who spend months wandering the high passes with their cattle. With spectacular views of the Daula Dhar Mountain Range, our journey together takes us through rhododendron forests, passing through Hindu settlements and Buddhist Monasteries. This journey has everything we could ever wish for from a trip to India.


To end this most amazing of charity challenges, we have some free time to explore the incomparable Taj Mahal – one of the world’s greatest monuments to love ever built, and one of the new Seven Wonders of the World!


The actual trek will be taking place in October 2020, however we are starting to sign people up for this incredible challenge to allow trekkers to raise the sponsorship money.
