volunteer in nature conservation project in nepal

Project Overview

The Himalayan region of Nepal, the land of Sherpa is a top travel destination of the world, with unique cultured local people living in the shadow of the highest mountains and rugged beauty of their valleys. Being inhabited by the unspoiled nature, you can enjoy your stay in Nepal with the welcoming and warm natives by volunteering in Everest region. This region is not motored; therefore people have hard lives walking up and down the hill for trade, agriculture, etc. Considerable changes like schools and hospital establishment have occurred in their lives with the entry of tourists across the globe. People require volunteers to aid them progress their lives to sustain themselves.

VNT has introduced the Himalayan Volunteer Program through which you can volunteer in Sherpa’s land to help and teach children and the community and thereby creating a confidence, liveliness and hope in them for the future. Apart from this volunteering service, you have the opportunities to enjoy the magnificent beauty and to have a learning experience with the local Sherpa community. You will enjoy the real local life by being one of them. As a part of the program, there will be specific schedules that would give you information about the daily activities that you are expected to do. Nature welcomes you every morning. After having breakfast with monks, you will teach in the classes at particular time periods scheduled. You can read books or have a walk to nearby village, restaurants, to enjoy the breathtaking beauty or to access Internet. Always find time to know the people and explore more!
