it was an amazing experience! the travel, families and kids in the school. Came back home a change person. From the center of Kathmandu to Everest base camp, chitwan. The culture, food, people is just awesome, ive been back twice and would love to visit it again. The first trip i did solo, highly recommend it, but not easy if your not an experience traveler. Sit down and talk to people get to know their stories and you'll be surprise how many will surprise you.

When you are trekking to EBC, your guide always says when you ask about the days route 'a little up, a little down ' the day we trekked from Dingboche to LoBoche over Tukhla Pass the comment was 'pretty flat, tough at the end' and he was so right! Such a terrific journey. You meet amazing folk along the track, each sharing their aspect of the track with you. By the time you reach Base Camp you're pretty much family!

What would you improve about this program?
A wonderful immersion into the Nepali culture, time for learning, time for processing, time for chillaxing. No improvement needed.

The Nepali kindness

I came to Nepal because of the it´s natural beauty, but I am coming back because of it´s people!

During my stay I was nurtured with wonders in the shape of mountains and temples, great guides, and support from the staff that I couldn´t possibly have imagined.
The greatest experience of all was my stay at the orphanage which provided me with valuable lessions, new perspectives, and gratitude. In return I gave the children a lot of fun memories, academic support, and new school bags!
To summarize: Nepal is wonderful, especially it´s people, and the staff got your back - for sure!

Journey of my life

These months had been really the moments of life that I can recall the most and can’t believe all sorts of different experiences I could have in such a short time.

Nepal, the land with highest peak of world is one the adventure destination. It is not possible explain the beauty of these Himalayas in words and the mention in words. These are the places where one feels like keep coming and definitely I will be here for the next time.

Taking part in the teaching activities and spending the times with locals have been also one of the most life changing experience. Though it may be somehow culturally difficult at the starting, but with the span of time these beautiful natural communities will certainly make you feel to remain there for long.

So needless to say, Trek in the Everest and not only trek but also teach the locals is one of the most recommended Nepal adventure for anyone who is looking for a off the beat proven adventure experience in Nepal.
