Our annual trek up Wales’ tallest mountain is one of our favourite challenges! And it's back after taking a break for a year! We have conquered the mountain in every possible kind of weather, and every single time it is a blast. Once described as a ‘big animal welfare hug’ it is a chance to meet other animal lovers from both our charity and also our trekking partner, Nowzad Dogs.
Each year we are led up the slopes by the wonderful Adventure Fitness Co. who provide their qualified and experienced mountain leaders voluntarily in order to help us all raise money for Animals Asia.
At 1,085 metres, Snowdon is the highest mountain in England and Wales and the same height as Table Mountain in South Africa. Our challenge is graded as hill walking and suitable for anyone with a reasonable fitness level - this is not a race but a personal or team challenge while raising much needed funds for the animals you care about.
At the end of our trek, we all meet up in the local pub along with our trekking companions from Nowzad dogs to take part in the customary pub quiz famously hosted by Pen Farthing. Of course the competition will be on to see what team from which charity wins this year!

HOW MUCH IS IT?
Registration fee is £20 (non refundable) for one place (or £25 if you'd also like a Moon Bear Hero vest!) and we ask you to raise a minimum sponsorship of £300 for the animals.
Animals Asia is the leading charity working to end the bear bile trade, which sees around 11,000 bears suffering on bile farms in China, and Vietnam. This barbaric practice sees bears living in cages they can’t even turn around in, while their bile is painfully extracted daily under no anaesthesia for up to 30 years.
Our other two campaigns work to end the brutal dog and cat meat trade, as well as ending abusive animal practices in zoos and safari parks across Asia.
Your attendance to this event will make the world of difference to thousands of animals suffering across Asia - we hope to see you there!
