14 Days – 26 Days
Nepal is a truly special place in the world. Nowhere else on the planet can you climb higher, dream bigger and better witness the infinite resilience of humanity than amongst these Himalayan giants and the mosaic of cultures within them. Immerse yourself in an ancient Hindu Kingdom at the doorstep of the Himalayas, where you will help families rebuild their homes following a devastating earthquake and teach fundamental English lessons to local children. After volunteering, embark on a 2-day whitewater rafting journey down the Trishuli River and search for rhinos, crocodiles, elephants and Bengal tigers on a wildlife safari in Chitwan National Park. Extend your trip with a 13-day trek to Everest Base Camp and stand face to face with the tallest mountain in the world!

Your projects will take place in the Gorkha district of Nepal, just miles away from the epicenter of a devastating earthquake that continues to displace families, cripple the local economy and disrupt the education system nearly three years later. Partner with local families to rebuild strong, earthquake-resistant homes that will provide a foundation for community development, and teach fundamental English lessons at nearby primary schools, providing local children and teens with the language skills, knowledge and confidence to pursue further educational and professional opportunities.
GIVE’s Nepal Excursion pushes you to experience as much of this country as possible in 2 weeks – explore the bustling streets and medieval architecture of Kathmandu, whitewater raft through the scenic valleys and deep-river gorges of the Trishuli River, bring The Jungle Book to life in Chitwan National Park, and travel back in time to the ancient Hindu Kingdom of Bhaktapur – all beneath the shadow of Mother Earth’s most magnificent creation, the mighty Himalayas.
