In April 2006 a group of 35 Scouts, Explorer Scouts and leaders from Lewisham North Scout District went to Nepal for a two week period. While in Nepal the group embarked on a week long trek that took them to an altitude of 3193 metres. The group trekked through stunning hills and snow peaked mountains before returning to the tranquil lake side city of Pokhara.
During the second week the group made its way back to the hustle and bustle of the capital Kathmandu where the group donated over 80 illustrated children's to a Non Government Funded school called EPHC (Education Protection and Help for Children). Whilst there, the group entertained the children as well as teaching them. The group were also shown the newly purchased land on which a new school will be built.
