Each year in May, students from all around the world have the chance to take part to a Tourism and Social Entrepreneurship Workshop. This camp is organised in collaboration with our charity sister Moving Mountains and takes place in the lower Solukhumbu region of the Himalayas in the rural villages of Bupsa and Bumburi. After couple days of hiking, the participants are involved on relevant working projects which aim to improve the lives of the communities while preserving the traditions and way of life of the local Sherpa people.

For more information and booking visit the Tourism Workshop’s page on the Adventure Alternative UK website.
