We believe that tourism can be a vehicle for encouraging rural communities in their development to enhance their way of life. It can also be a vehicle for sharing positive information and knowledge between various cultures and regions, thus inspiring a positive living at both ends.
Every year, we organize Charity treks to support some rural community projects such as building health posts, schools and agriculture projects and at the same time offer opportunities for our guests to explore new and exciting places besides the common trekking routes.

  • Since 2020, our founder Jigme Lama has been supporting a school in Beding and we were able to connect a group in Canada/Norway with the school to fund for 5 years.
  • In partnership with Himalayan Initiatives, UK , we have supported
    • Nele Primary School; flooring, benches and clean water:
    • Installation of 500 meters of high quality water pipe brings clean spring water to Nele primary school for drinking and use in the toilets.
    • Income generation: Agricultural training has been provided locally to help villagers increase productivity and diversify crops.
    • Healthcare: Five extra solar panels have been installed at Nele health post to provide electricity to a new refrigerator for vaccine storage and to improve lighting at the birthing center.
    • Education: In Aajambari Primary School, Jhareni Village (Solukhumbu), supported in building school infrastructure with earthquake resistant features.

All projects emerge through community consultation. The community contributes at least one third of the costs as far as is possible, and we try to raise the remaining. And our volunteers during the trekking, contribute with whatever skill they bring.
These small scale projects driven by the efforts and enthusiasm of the local people are having a big impact on their everyday lives.
