Volunteering / Gap Year in Nepal

This is a unique blend of various activities particularly devised for students taking a gap year. The multi activities holiday includes a volunteering service focused on the development of local community, cultural exchange activities, a soft adventure trek in a magnificent Langtang region and guided visits to the cultural and historical legacies of Kathmandu valley.

To make volunteer work most exciting and highly educative, we have conceived an idea of ‘homestay program’ where we put students together with local families of the region, at least 2 to 3 students share a family and we make sure that all the students are given a warm hospitality and maintain top hygienic level while catering to the guests. We are very hopeful that this program offers students a highly rewarding holiday where they can interact with local families involving themselves in various volunteering activities such as teaching in local schools, helping local health post, assisting in various community services and so on.

The activity concludes with a weeklong trek to Langtang region. The trek starts from Syabru Bensi after 5-6 hours drive from Nuwakot. Following a trail upstream Bhote Kosi river through ethnic Tamang villages, lush green forests and wide spread Kyangin valley.

Surrounded by snowy peaks from all fours sides, we ascend up to Kyangin at 3800 meter, where we get an opportunity to ascend Kyangjin Ri [4350m], from where the 360 degree mountain views are truly spectacular. After an ascent of Kyangjin Ri, we retrace our route back down the valley to Syabru Bensi and then drive back to Kathmandu. The trek is not considered strenuous, yet, it remains challenging as it reaches the altitude of 3800 meter at Kyangjin Ri at 4350 meter.

Happy Clients

This is the first time for our group to visit the Nepal, Bhutan and Kashmir region and we have enjoy it very much. It is very fortunate for us, being our first trip to select your company to arrange for us the tour, and we are very please with your service and support, and your co-ordination with the Bhutan operator. For the Indian operator, except for some minor situations, overall it is satisfactory.
I believe there will be more trips to come and will recommend to you potential future travellers there.
