Live your Experience… Come to NEPAL as a Volunteer
Volunteering, Himalayas and much more
Kathmandu, the so-called “capital of heaven” for hosting Nepal 8 of the 14 highest peaks in the world, is in the middle of a valley and at a height of 1317 meters above sea level. It is a city with a lot of personality that will not leave anyone indifferent. Its alleys, temples, squares and parks entertain any traveller with a little curiosity. The Nepalese, with their friendliness and hospitality, make you feel at home. Without a doubt, you will remember Durbar Square, the colourful district of Thamel or Patan, as well as its gastronomy or ancient cultural richness.
You will work hand in hand with local NGOs in different projects.

A day of a Volunteer
The volunteers who will live with you come from all over the world and are very different people. But the fact of sharing this profound experience, prints the house of volunteers with a warm atmosphere of companionship and friendship that is perceived as soon as you land. It is something close, something special.
Thus, among friends, your day begins with a breakfast in the dining room before leaving for your project, where they will receive you with open arms since the volunteers are highly valued and respected in Nepal. You will work approx. from 9 to 12.30 or 13:00. A lunch, some free time, and again to work, which is nothing but a hugely rewarding time where your help will report more to you than to them.
In the afternoons, already back at the volunteer house, you will have free time to visit the city or carry out the cultural immersion activities of the program. And on weekends … free to rest, or to travel!
The House of Volunteers of Jaipur is ideally located for the participants in the projects; a residential area near the center, with shops, restaurants, hospital, transportation, etc. It has rooms for 1 to 4 people with a cooler and bathroom, living rooms and common dining room, satellite TV, free Wi-Fi internet, washing machine with clothesline, refrigerators, bookstore, lockers, etc. And always under the supervision and attention of the coordinator. Everything so that you are at ease.
About food, Indian dishes are prepared that do, itch a little, but you will surely love them. Rice, legumes, wheat chapati, vegetables, chicken and lamb. 3 meals are included every day.
And if you want a more intense cultural immersion experience, you can also stay in a host family. Very hospitable, they are a safe, comfortable and culturally enriching option for a volunteer in India. Our network of selected families with extensive experience are middle-class, with children and / or dependents, and their homes are located near basic services such as markets, public transport and shopping centers.
Thus is the travel we propose you…
are you really going to leave it for later??
