Trip Overview

Volunteer as you trek is a newly designed package after the deteriorating 7.8 Richter scale earthquake in Nepal. The destruction caused by the earthquake was massive. Many of them lost their lives, their loved ones and their homes. The feeling of being homeless, the feeling of letting oneself see their hard earned money of lifetime turned into mud and dust; nothing could have been more painful!

If you care for them, then just come visit Nepal and taste the wonders of nature along with a volunteering attempt to help the earthquake victims! Your visit to Nepal will also be an effort to prosper the tourism industry in Nepal after the destructive earthquake. This trek includes the Ghorepani poon Hill Trek along with your visit to the earthquake affected areas.

We initiate our journey from the capital city of Nepal – Kathmandu to the country side earthquake affected area where you will investigate the life of people and support them. We help their rebuild their houses and contribute to their grief however we can. Exploring and volunteering the affected areas, we move head towards Pokhara. Pokhara is the most happening place in Nepal. Embedded with the azure lakes, this valley possesses all the beauty of nature. From rivers, waterfalls, valleys, lush hills, forests to mountains, you can enjoy every aspect of nature here.

As we reach Pokhara, we drive to Nayapul and start our trekking journey. We pass ethnic settlement villages, walk through dense rhododendron and fir forests to Ghorepani. Ghorepani is best known for its mountain views. As we reach Ghorepani, we will be welcomed by the awe inspiring views of mountains like Annapurna I, II, III, IV, Annapurna South, Gangapurna, Nilgiri, Dhaulagiri, Macchapucchre and many more. Poon Hill is a vantage point in the region famous for its glorious sunrise and sunset views from amongst the towering vistas of Annapurna.

We had an unbelievable adventure completing the Mardi Himal Trek in January 2023. Our guide Rajendra (Raj), and porter Rajesh  were professional, fun, energetic, and knowledgeable about not only the trek we were on but about many others in the area.

I'm so happy I went with Nepal Hiking Team. From the moment I arrived at the hotel, I knew I made the right choice. The hotel was in a great area. Bars, restaurants, clubs, shops were all within a 10 minute or less walk from the hotel.

I completed the 14 day Annapurna Circuit early December 2022, thank you so much to Surya and Rabin, who both went out of their way to make this trip, that I'd been planning so long,and  memorable. They were always checking in with me during the hike

Namaste! I highly recommend Nepal Hiking Team for your trekking adventure in the beautiful Himalayan Mountains of Nepal. This was my first trip to Nepal and additionally my first ever muli-day trek. Annapurna Base Camp Trek became a dream of mine about

We completed the 15-day Manaslu Circuit trek with Nepal Hiking Team in late November 2022.

The scenery of the Manaslu region is stunning and far more beautiful than we had imagined. The weather was excellent!
