Plain old traveling is a thing of the past because what is in just viewing the sceneries, and clicking a few photographs here and there when you can do so much more. With the ‘Volunteer tour to Nepal’ plan, you can enjoy the picturesque beauty of Nepal with the added benefit of connecting with the locals and being someone who makes a huge difference to the rural communities. You will go home not with photographs but with fond memories of the people and a serene satisfaction in your heart.
The Volunteer tour includes sightseeing trips to the World Heritage sites in Kathmandu, Volunteer teaching in local schools, participating in the day-to-day local household activities and learning the lifestyle, culture, festivals, and rituals of the locals from experiences rather than a guide who can’t stop talking.
But, it is not just about helping the locals. The trip also includes a visit to one of the most popular tourist destinations in Nepal – Chitwan National Park, blessed with a variety of fauna and flora. In addition, you will see vibrant villages and irrigated terraces and gain firsthand experience of Nepal’s rural landscapes.
Don’t miss out on a chance to be more than just a traveler.
