Travel, trek and triumph

Travellers who have a thirst for adventure can also exercise their community spirit by trekking for a cause.


The Kids’ Cancer Project, a charity committed to funding research to find better treatments and ultimately a cure for childhood cancer, has partnered with Huma Travel to create two treks – ‘Nepal Everest Views’ in November and ‘Summit Cradle Mountain’ in February, 2018.

These experiences promise to not only transform the life of the intrepid tourist, but through their fundraising efforts, will also help kids suffering with cancer.


NEPAL EVEREST VIEWS - On this small-group 14-day tour, trekkers will explore villages, roam the colourful markets of Namche Bazaar, visit the famous Thyangboche monastery and experience the rich culture of the Sherpa people. Plus, they’ll also visit a school aiding disadvantaged children to help rebuild a classroom.

Registration of $4,880 includes flights, accommodation and most meals.


SUMMIT CRADLE MOUNTAIN - On this four-day adventure, trekkers will explore the beauty, peace and exhilaration of Tasmania’s Cradle Mountain National Park alongside Col Reynolds, The Kids’ Cancer Project Founder, and Professor Peter Gunning, who is undertaking ground-breaking research into childhood cancer. With only a backpack carrying essentials, the hiking tour will explore the Great Western Tiers, Mole Creek, Karst National Park and Forth Valley.

Registration costs $1,490 and includes accommodation and most meals. As part of the journey, each participant on the treks will be given an achievable fundraising goal. Combined, these life-changing tours hope to raise $150,000 for research into better treatments and ultimately a cure for childhood cancer.
