Head for new heights this February by challenging yourself to walk the equivalent distance of the world's highest trek from Lukla to the summit of Everest (41 miles) from, or near to, your own home throughout February. And for an added challenge, try to claim the Ben Nevis 'Hillseeker' badge by climbing a total of 1,345 m throughout your month of hikes.

Hiking from Lukla to Everest showcases the awe-inspiring beauty of the Himalayas, home to the Sherpa people of Northern Nepal. Since the first successful ascent by Sherpa Tenzing Norgay and Sir Edmund Hillary in 1953, summitting Mount Everest has become the ultimate challenge for the world's best mountaineers. Along the way, youll 'visit' colourful Sherpa villages and monasteries on your way to Everest Base Camp (5364 m), before traversing the treacherous Khumbu Icefall to reach the highest point of Earth; the summit of Mount Everest (8,848 m).

It's a truly memorable experience and we're giving you the chance, wherever you are, to take on this virtual version of the challenge, without the airfare, to help raise vital funds for Pilgrims specialist end-of-life care.

During this extraordinary time of restricted global travel, it is more important than ever to make sure to stay active, feel inspired, exercise and feel connected to one another. Walking is good for us, both for our physical fitness and mental well-being, and you can join our friendly community of Pilgrims Hospice Hikers in our active Pilgrims Hospices Walking and Hiking Facebook group to encourage one another and ask questions.

It's tough but achievable; with some planning and determination anyone can conquer the Virtual Hike: Everest Summit. Why not complete the hike with friends or family to make the journey even more enjoyable.
