About the program

Giving something back to the world can be highly rewarding and life changing experience.

Volunteering with us could help you choose a new direction in life or develop a career path you may already be on. It might be both personal highlight and practical stepping stone in a gap or for anyone at any time, a great way to go abroad for much more than just a holiday.

There are two main volunteering fields that you can get involved in:

  • Education - Program volunteers can help at the local school & organize extra activities
  • Environment - Other volunteering projects include farming, developing eco infrastructure of the camp, such as waste recycling. Help to make it self-sustain camp where people feel like at home and can reconnect with nature.

In the free time we help you to get to know real nepalese life. From the camp you can start one day hiking, rafting, kayaking, canyoning. For some who are looking quiet time we have morning meditation and yoga classes on the sandy river bank. 

We make sure your volunteering will be the unforgettable experience!

About the project

Help to build an outdoor activity camp in Ghyalchok, Nepal

Meet your organization

Our passion at Best Adventure Nepal is to make a difference and impact the lives of rural people (especially children and youths) in Nepal. 

After years of working in the tourism industry we can see that this can be the opportunity for Nepalese people to learn and to adapt important aspects into their lives. 

The growing issue in Nepal is waste/ garbage disposal witch many times impact our beautiful country in a very bad way. Nepal is developing faster than it can absorb the amount of waste therefore, it is our aim at Best Adventure Nepal to teach people in the community that bad disposal can affect their health and that land covered in garbage is not appealing to tourists. 

Teaching is the most important thing, and after people will realize it, we can act by implementing solutions. Building an Best Adventure Nepal - Outdoor Activity camp is a part of our program of the clean environment and ecological projects. We are looking for volunteers to support us in many areas construction, maintenance, gardening as well as teaching it the local school, organizing free time for young children during holidays, teaching English.

Our vision at Best Adventure Nepal is a world where excitement and discovery are the norm, accessible to everyone. We’ve seen how a shared adventure has the power to unite people of all backgrounds.

SAFETY FIRST
