In 2016 the British Services launched a mountaineering and medical research expedition to Nepal. This evening’s presentation will take you through the journey that supported an unprecedented number of trekkers and mountaineers over the Dhaulagiri circuit with stops on Damphus Peak, Tukuche and an attempt on Dhaulagiri itself. There will also be time to explore the progress made in the pursuit of medical research.
