Travel with a purpose

I can’t recommend this trip highly enough. As with all of our previous travel with Global Dental Relief, this location was very well organized and efficient-allowing us the ability to really make a big impact during the week we spent in the clinic. It was also such a pleasure to work with the students from the SMD school who had been
trained as dental assistants. And of course, the chance to explore Kathmandu was exciting! The GDR staff is well acquainted with the area and made sure we saw and experienced all this amazing city has to offer. The culture, food, people, sights and sounds make this a truly special place. It is not an exaggeration to say this was an adventure of a lifetime!

Everest country

Despite its location, Kathmandu weather is similar to home. The clinic is located in a school within walking distance of the guesthouse. These kids have been seen for years and we're now doing sealants as well as restorations and extractions. The history here is fabulous with opportunities to explore ancient cities. Afterward, one can either walk part of the trail to Mt. Everest or go to another town to the west for another clinic and stay in luxury tents overnight.
