This program will give you the opportunity to experience the mountains and cultures that very few outsiders get to see. During this trek, you will be walking through different villages, eating the region’s food and staying at local houses. This program will give you a very different experience than a regular trek will! If you are more interested in experiencing Nepali culture up close, then this village trek is for you!
The routes are designed to pass through a number of small villages that rarely (if ever!) get visited by tourists. You will meander among rice fields, stay will locals, eat authentic food and get to observe the village life up-close. Moreover, we will meet farmers, visit local schools and oh, right! - trek up and down at times too! After all, this is Nepal!
Exploring the typical way of life of villages in Nepal, encounter different varied cultures in the Himalayas region with dramatic views of the snow capped mountains.

Few things to consider when you are with us!
Volunteer experiences have a direct and positive impact on local communities by injecting money into the local economy through the purchase of food, transportation, and tourism activities. Volunteering is a great way to give back to the comunity and make a difference in the world. Depending on the type of volunteer experience you are interested in, your time can be spent improving educational resources and opportunities, providing medical services to underserved communities, or promoting environmental conservation and sustainable farming techniques.
Drive to Sankhu for an hour, which is one of the oldest Newari settlements. We will have lunch in Sankhu and then walk for 3 hours to Kartike / Nagarkot (one of the best places to see the Himalayas if the weather is clear). Nagarkot thrills visitors with its unrestricted view of the mountain range from Annapurna in the west to the mighty Everest in the East. Overnight with local family.
