Rebuilding Nepal & trek into the Annapurna Base Camp

The most catastrophic earthquake hit Nepal on the 25th of April 2015 with a great loss of lives and destroying schools, villages, residential buildings, historical temples. After such unimaginable event Nepalese are trying their best and struggling to get back to normal. Everyone from different nations came up to help and rebuild, and in these situation, you can also come forward and help in rebuilding this nation.

The most sustainable means of helping the affected communities is by actually VISITING these areas besides giving donations to the local people. Addressing all these and targeting certain families in one of the nearby village from Kathmandu, we have come up with a program with volunteering work. Initially, a volunteering job of rebuilding houses for four days starts then follows a short trek into the Annapurna region, Annapurna Base Camp. Your contribution will help for the sustainable re-development of the community as well as the principle industry of Nepal ‘tourism’. Further, our guides and trekking staff will get to work once again. All the logistic, reconstruction materials are included in your trip cost plus the trekking program. The only thing needed now is YOUR HELPING HAND.

In these difficult times, we look forward to your support and helping hands, and if you see yourself as one who wish to help Nepal to rebuild itself and at the same time visit one of the most favored travel destination in the world.
