Nepal’s Tibetan Frontier Highlights

Volunteer

Your projects will take place in the remote community of Langtang, which was devastated by a 7.8 magnitude earthquake in April 2015. The quake triggered an avalanche that wiped out hundreds of homes and businesses and, tragically, took more than 200 lives. Still today, the aftermath of this natural disaster continues to displace families, cripple the local economy and disrupt the education system. Partner with community members to rebuild a primary school, which will provide a foundation for healing and redevelopment, and teach fundamental English lessons to local children and adults.

Adventure

Every single day of this trip is an adventure – explore the bustling streets and medieval architecture of Kathmandu, spend 4 days trekking through the Langtang Valley, immerse yourself in the Tibetan culture of high-altitude settlements, summit Himalayan peaks, and travel back in time to the ancient Hindu Kingdom of Bhaktapur – all within the shadow of Mother Earth’s most magnificent creation, the mighty Himalayas.

“Traveling to Nepal with GIVE took my appreciation for adventure to another level. I learned to love and respect the vast peaks and valleys of the Himalayas as the locals do.”
