Home | Nepal Adventures | REACH for Nepal Community Project, Trekking & Yoga with RFN Director Lou Nulley

Overview

This trip has been exclusively designed to include a REACH for Nepal building project, trekking, and where practical, a regular yoga session. Historically, these trips provide the opportunity for people to contribute in a very real and practical way to deliver on the objectives of the REACH for Nepal foundation to Rebuild, Educate, Assist,the Children/Communities (giving) Hope for Nepal.

Walk the fabulous Annapurna treks combined with visits to Bandipur and regional Pokhara. Included in the itinerary is the Pokhara Valley with its panoramic view of Machapuchare and the Annapurna massif, picturesque Gurung villages of the hills and stunning vantage points for views of the highest peaks. We experience these highlights while staying at low altitudes where the temperatures remain moderate. The trek pace is relaxed to ensure that the trek is comfortably achievable by trekkers of average fitness. There are some challenging sections though, so it is advisable to practice hill walks and steps beforehand. There is time for yoga, and this will be included in the program by your Australian Yoga instructor and tour lead. You do not need to have done yoga to be part of the adventure, and participation in yoga is optional.

As part of the trip, you will be doing a two/three day community project in a village school sponsored by the REACH for Nepal Foundation (RFN). More information on the project will be available a month before you travel.

Testimonials from participants on previous trips are available upon request.
