Rebuilding Nepal & trek into the Everest Base Camp

Rebuilding Nepal

Nepal was hit by one of the most catastrophic earthquake on the 25th of April 2015 extending massive loss of lives and destroying villages, residential buildings, schools, hospitals and historical temples. Nepalese are trying their level best to get back to normal and struggling hard to recover after such unimaginably event. The entire world came forward to help and rebuild, and in which situation, there is also something which YOU can also do to help and lend a helping hand to rebuild this nation again.

Besides, giving donations to the local people, the most sustainable means of helping the affected communities is by actually VISITING those areas and help in rebuilding. Highlighting all these we have put together an itinerary and a volunteering work that seeks to target certain families in one of the nearby village from the Kathmandu City. The program starts with a volunteering job of rebuilding the houses for four days followed by a trek into the Everest Region, Everest Base Camp. With this you are not only contributing for the sustainable re-development of the community but also helping the principle industry of Nepal ‘tourism’ plus our tour guides and trekking staff gets to work once again. Your trip cost includes all the logistic, reconstruction materials needed for the rebuilding program and of course your trekking program. The only thing required now is YOUR HELPING HAND.

We heartily welcome you if you are willing to lend your much needed helping hands in these difficult times and if you consider yourself to be the one who wish to support Nepalese people in re-building their communities, at the same time visiting one of the world renowned travel destination.

The Everest Base Camp Trekking
The Everest Base Camp is one of the most sought out and popular trek in the Everest region for it’s scenic beauty as well as being at the foot of the world’s highest mountain Mt. Everest. The ultimate quest is to reach the Everest Base Camp located at an elevation of 5,380 m above sea level, a life time dream of any passionate travelers round the world. The trail of Everest Base Camp trek winds through lush low lands, alpine forests, icy cold glaciers, Himalayan Rivers as well as old Buddhist monasteries, age old Sherpa settlements, and involves fair amounts of ascending and descending. The trek is ideal for those who are looking into some ultimate adventure experience high up in the mountain.

To get it all started for the ultimate experience, the trek commences from the mountain airstrip of Lukla after a Trans-Himalayan flight from Kathmandu. Lukla is also known as the entry point to the Everest Base Camp trek.
