Summit extreme - Reaching the Himalayan Plateaus (5m)

In this fairly remote country in the Himalayas, many people have never heard of God’s love. Millions of people are untouched by the transformative impact of the gospel. This is simply because no one has been there, yet!

When you join Summit, for five or nine months, a significant part of your time is spend in the Himalayan plateaus, at high altitudes and in restricted areas. While travelling in small groups through the villages we build relationships, share the gospel and sleep at local homes. Pray for people who never had a chance to hear about God’s love. Time spend on trek will help you see, and be a part of, what God is doing to expand His Kingdom to the least reached peoples of the Himalayas.

Accommodation

Your new home will be in the nation’s capital. Together with other international team members you share a flat, and live close to where the rest of the team lives. You are responsible for practical things like shopping, cooking and cleaning. On trek you stay at local homes or churches. Be prepared to sleep on whatever you bring or what is provided for you.
