In October 2070 (2013) a group of very motivated young people will visit Nepal in an attempt to summit Mera Peak (6476m), Khumbu District, supported by the most experienced and skilled staff of the Himalayan Guiding Institute. The small group of Australians come from very different backgrounds and cultures. Some of the group are former refugees whose journeys to Australia were very difficult and dangerous. Brad Clarke, the Group Leader spoke about the plans for the climb.

“We have put together a team of young Australians to highlight that people from all cultures and backgrounds can work together to achieve great things, even when there are large differences in lifestyle and beliefs. And the beautiful Republic of Nepal is simply the most wonderful place to showcase this.”

“Our group, Aussie Action Abroad has worked in the Annapurna Region, Lamjung District for the past 12 years and we look forward to continuing to support local communities grow and improve health and infrastructure. Our climb project is something very new for us and we look forward to achieving great things and developing strong leaders who will return to Australia ready to create positive energy and outcomes for the Australian people.”

“Together we can work towards a world that is free from discrimination; a world that believes in peace and enlightenment, as most of the wondrous Nepali people do!”
