Home | Nepal Adventures | Community Rebuild Project & Trekking in Nepal with Mont Adventure Equipment

Overview

Nepal has some of the most stunning, remote mountain ranges in the world; however, these rugged and isolated areas were some of the hardest hit in the 2015 earthquake. Mont and REACH for Nepal Foundation are offering you a chance to get off the beaten track and experience the genuine culture of Nepal while making an actual difference in a remote village.

Change people's lives on this genuine 'off the beaten track' adventure: 3 days physical work rebuilding a remote village school, unique cultural experiences & guided trekking through some of the World's great ranges. The community project for the trip is being finalised and is likely to be in a village which will be at the end of the trek. Work will start on the project before the group arrives and the touring party will provide whatever assistance they can during the time we are there.

As part of the trip, we encourage travellers to raise a minimum of AUD $250 that will go towards the Foundation to carry out the project.
