Adventure Nepal

As part of our ongoing support since the devastating earthquake in Nepal in April 2015, the Nepal Appeal Charity  was established and went on to raise over £60,000 to support the rebuilding of homes and schools in rural communities in some of the worst affected regions.

By the end of 2016 the Charity had built a number of homes, supplied a number of water supplies to comminuties and completed the rebuild of three schools in one of the most effected areas.

The trip being run by Live The Adventure in April 2018, trip will support the long term development of the 3 schools, assisting to provide better resources and standards of education. The aim of this trip is to visit the schools and assist the pupils, teachers and community where most needed. The week will be based at a stunning riverside resort with permanent camp style accommodation close to the school project sites. From here we will go out each day accompanied by Charity volunteers to work with the local community, families and children directly helping them. Whether you are a skilled labourer, just happy to use a paintbrush or want to work with the school children themselves, the rewards for the time spent in the community will provide life long memories and a bond with a nation of such welcoming people.

Once we have finished the project work at the schools we then spent time exploring this stunning Himalayan country and some of its many highlights. During the second week of this trip, the Live The Adventure team will guide you in a multi adventure experience across to the Annapurna region where you get to immerse yourself in the culture, colour, scenery and adventure that Nepal is famous for.

We fly directly to Nepal’s second city Pokhara to start a 5 day trek in the Annapurna region of the Himalayas.  Using porters each day to assist with our loads and staying in lodges in the rural communities each evening, our day times are spent trekking through the rhododenron forests, across rice fields to view points of the Himalayas. The high point of this trek is an early morning ascent of Poon Hill at 3100m to watch the sun rise over the majestic Himalayas. We then descend to complete the trek and make our way back to Pokhara for a rest and time to explore this lake side second city of Nepal. 

The following day we depart from Pokhara to start our two day rafting adventure along the Seti river. Over the 2 days we head south through remote villages, along stunning scenery and viewing an abundance of wildlife and spend a night camped out on one of the many pristine riverside sandy beaches.

On completion of the river trip we then transfer to our Safari lodge at Chitwan national Park for the start of our Safari experience. Spending two night here give us the opportunity to immerse ourselves in a different part of Nepal – the jungle! Over the 2 days you will get the opportunity to see crocodiles from dug out canoes, walk through the raw nature of the flora and fauna, and view Rhinos from the back of an elephant!

On the last morning we complete our safari experience and then transfer for an internal flight back to Kathmandu for our last night and time for last minute souvenir shopping.
