What our volunteer are saying
I absolutely loved the trek! The nature is beautiful and the mountains super impressive. I would totally recommend to go with this travel agency. The organisation was perfect, a daunejacket was provided and the guide made valuable recommendations about what to bring in advance. The guide ‘s English was very good, therefore it was fun talking to him. Accommodation and food were good and without being pushed I made it to the top at 4770m. A fantastic experience!
Pokhara is a beautiful city to visit, much more quiet than Kathmandu. We were going up to Sarankot with the taxi at 5 o’clock am to see the magnificent sunrise at the Annapurna mountains and afterwards we hike from Sarankot, which was steep and beautiful. There are a lot of short hiking possibilities, but our time was too short (only 2 nights). My recommendation is to stay longer, also because one have to be very patient to get there, it’s about 9 hours bus drive from Kathmandu.
The old part of the city was gorgeous to see. We enjoyed the old temples, walked through narrow streets and observed the handicrafts makers at their work. We could have spent longer time there, but after two hours we had a pick up to Nagarkot, where we wanted to see the sunset and in the early morning the sunrise at the mountain peaks and both were amazing. After breakfast we started walking down to Changu, a little we missed walking around Nagarkot. The first hour we walked along a very nice forest trail, but the next 2,5 hours we had to walk on the road, which was on construction and very dusty. May be there is another trail you could offer from Nagarkot down?
I really enjoyed the trip! It was facinating to visit Buddhas birthplace and the surounding monasteries. The guide was great, explaning the different buddhist directions. We also went birdwatching and saw wild cranes and storkes.
Bhaktapur is definitely worth a visit – I would have liked to spend more time there. The mountain views were fantastic! Walking down was slightly disapointing, since the trail ends after one hour of walking and one has to follow the road for the rest of the walk.
It was an absolutely incredible experience and one that I would recommend to everybody.
“Doing this volunteer trekking was something great. The guide and the porter were both nice and understanding. We had enough food, places to sleep were good. I just think I could have share room with the two boy and not always have my own room.
Trekking in the Himalayas was an unforgettable experience for us. The trekking was physically challenging at times, however the magical views, the heartwarming hospitality of the people as they welcomed us into there tea houses and our guide and sherpa who were always encouraging and happy to help made it a very fulfilling experience.
