ONLY 1 SPot left!

In partnership with Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Massachusetts Bay, Choose a Challenge is offering 20 explorers from Boston College the chance to follow in the footsteps of Sir Edmund Hillary on a journey to the foot of the tallest mountain in the world. Explorers arrive in bustling Kathmandu to explore a city like no other. Then, it's off to Lukla where the trek begins. The well-worn Everest trail winds its way through the Himalayan Mountain Range - traipsing through valleys, passing over rivers, and trekking past sacred monasteries to reach the base of Mount Everest.
