Staff from the NHS take on Annapurna for HEY CU

On the 12th February, two NHS doctors took on the huge Annapurna Circuit in Nepal to raise money for Hull & East Yorkshire Children’s University.

Brags and Muthu work full time for the NHS and had no previous experience of similar adventure.

They chose to dedicate the effort towards the education and development of children from the Hull and East Yorkshire region and so chose HEY CU as the charity to support. The funds raised will go towards helping children gain a wide range life experience, raise their ambitions  and discover their strengths.

They raised a fantastic £1330 on their fundraising page and they have even more expected to come in!

The Annapurna Circuit is a trek within the Annapurna mountain range of central Nepal.The total length of the route varies between 160–230 km (100-145 mi), depending on where motor transportation is used and where the trek is ended. This trek crosses two different river valleys and encircles the Annapurna massif. The path reaches its highest point at Thorung La pass (5416m/17769 ft), touching the edge of the Tibetan plateau. The trail passes along paddy fields and into subtropical forests, several waterfalls and gigantic cliffs, and various villages. Annapurna Circuit has often been voted as the best long distance trek in the world, as it combined, in its old full form, a wide variety of climate zones from tropics at 600 m asl to the arctic at 5416 m asl at the Thorong La pass and cultural variety from Hindu villages at the low foothills to the Tibetan culture of Manang Valley and lower Mustang.
