Summit '23 - Hiking the Himalayan trails (5month)
28 Aug 2023
24 Jan 2024
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 good news. This is simply because no one has been there, yet!
There is an information packet available after accepting your application. This packet will contain all the necessary details about what to bring and not to bring.
When you start in August it is possible to extend your time with us on the spot, until the end of May 2023, or for 2 years (as long as your church is supportive and finances are covered). This outreach is aimed at ages 18 to 40.
The cost is subject to exchange rates and will be finalised 2 months before you go.
Cost excludes flights, insurance and any possible vaccinations.
It is recommended that you attend OM UK's Getting into Gear (GIG) weekend either in the May or October before your placement. This is an additional £75 and is a time of training and orientation. Please enquire for further details.

Frequently Asked Questions
Will there be accomodation provided?
Your new home will be in the nation's capital. Together with other 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. Be prepared to sleep on whatever you bring or what is provided for you.
Will there be food provided?
Local Asian food will be served, especially during trekking (lots of rice!). Be ready to enjoy the food served for the team. Please ask for advise if you have dietary restrictions.
Do I need to make my own travel arrangements?
You are responsible to arrange and pay your own flight. We will pick you up at the airport. All other travel within the country will be taken care of. Unfortunately it's not possible to stay longer, as your visa will expire.
What should my health condition be like?
You will need to be in reasonable good health, both physically and emotionally. Be prepared for bumpy bus rides, long hikes in mountainous areas and interaction with local people. Please inform us if you have any health issues.
Do I need a visa?
Please fill in your interest and the local office will get in touch with you relating to visa.
Majority of nationalities can get visa upon arrival.
