School Group Volunteering - The Himalaya Camp

This camp in Nepal is mainly aimed for college, university and other school groups and students. This journey allows young persons to interact with rural communities in Nepal. As well, the concept is of a joint summer camp shared between your school team and a local group of Nepali students. You will undertake an expedition and obviously have free time to discover all what Nepal has to offer.

You will go on an adventure to the foothills of the Himalayas, discovering traditional Sherpa culture and living in Sherpa homes and teahouses profoundly set in the lush green mountains. Your path will be the one of the inhabitants of the region and you will appreciate the serene atmosphere of Bumburi and Bupsa, two villages where Moving Mountains Nepal has established environmentally friendly and development projects during the pas ten years.

Please note that the required number of participants is at a minumum of 5 and a maximum of 20 participants. Nevertheless, it doesn't mean that you have to be a group of 5 to book the trip.
