Local Village Support & Trekking

Kathmandu, Nepal show on map

The program is about volunteering in local villages of Nepal to help disaster victims people as well as travelling in the Himalayas.

Traveling with  a reason is always great idea to help the local community. Everybody has some social responsibility while travelling that can be completed through volunteering activities in local villages among local communities. This also provides the opportunity to learn, encounter and gain local culture, behavior, lifestyle of people and to develop the intimacy with them. You can share your experiences among your friends, family and relatives how you can satisfy yourself by helping the people. We have designed your volunteer program in one of the remote villages of Nepal that was badly affected by the earthquake. Besides of volunteering, the program also includes your short hiking the Himalayas- probably the best hiking trails in the world. The hiking is a popular hiking known as Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek. This trekking starts from the place from the place called Pokhara also known as the Himalayas paradise. Among many trekking in Annapurna Himalayas, Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek is short and easy hiking to see the massif Annapurna, Machhapuchhre, Dhaulagiri, Nilgiri, South Annapurna. You have to hike up to 3210 Meters during your trekking. This wonderful hiking on the lap of the Himalayas helps to forget all the tiredness from your volunteer works and day hiking. Feel the nature and promote the locals by joining this volunteer program in the remote village of Nepal including the wonderful hiking in one of the most popular hiking trails in the world. 

Free-time activities

The volunteer activities will be in the remote villages of Nepal where is no many options of free time activities as the place will not be suitable for outdoor activities. But of course you can take a village walk, short hiking, play sports like badminton, chess, ludo. Most of the indoor games will be suitable here. Reading might be the best way to kill your free time. You won’t be engaging on works that require technical expertise. The activities done by volunteers are carrying housing equipment like timber, stones, sand, cement, tin, iron rods, aluminum sheets etc, mixing sand and cement, painting the walls of the houses and so on. For activities needing technical skills, we will hire building professionals. But if you have skills, then you can help them in their work and make things easier.
