Nepal Volunteering 2020 Schedule

 Nepal 2020 Volunteer Trip:

The volunteers will group in Kathmandu & travel to the mountainous regions devastated by the earthquake.  We will live in a homestay and eat our meals with a chef that I have hired from KTM.  The chef will help us stay healthy and happy.  We will work in the small villages and schools in the mountainous areas.  After our mission trip, we will travel to Chitwan National park embarking on an Elephant ride, Jungle walk, visit the One-Horned Rhino & Bengali Tiger research stations. 

(Option, in case you want to do some trekking, instead of Chitwan we have guides available for overnight treks in the Annapurna Mountain Ranges of Nepal.  Very beautiful.  Take a 3- or 4-day hike staying in tea houses in the tundra areas with one of the trained guides.  A wonderful alternative.)

Our in-country guides and services are provided by Earthbound Expeditions, whom I have worked with and have known for many years.
