Volunteer Trekking in Nepal is a combine form of trekking with a social contribution. Many communities in the countryside are struggling to overcome the 2015 earthquake in Nepal. Especially in making the shelter, health posts and schools. During your volunteer trips in Nepal, you will get a direct opportunity to experience the root lifestyle of Nepali people. Adjoining the trek with it, you will have a wonderful holiday in Nepal.
For the trekking with volunteer in Nepal, Adventure Bound Nepal arranges the base for your volunteer works and the journey in the Lower Ananpurna region. The trip begins driving from Kathmandu to Baireni, Dhading, which was a badly affected area. A couple of years have passed, but the hangover of the devastating scenario can be experienced there. As a volunteering part, you can involve in rebuilding the houses, schools, teach students, play with them and find the ways to make them happy on top of all to bring the smile to the grumpy faces which happened due to earthquake. Students really find it worthy to enjoy exclusive moments to interact with you and learn what you teach them with a huge concentration.
