Nepal is in the Himalayas and is a small Asian mountainous country wedged between India and Tibet. Nepal may be a small country, but no matter what your interests, there is something here for all volunteers.
Himalayan mountains - home to 8 of the 14 highest mountains in the world, Nepal is a trekker’s paradise. Experience some of the most stunning mountain scenery in the world and admire the world famous Mount Everest.
Festivals - there are colourful festivals almost every week in Nepal and volunteers often get involved. Religion is a huge part of people’s rich and vibrant culture in Nepal. Throughout Nepal there are hundreds of unique, ornate and exciting Hindu and Buddhist temples waiting to be explored.
Adventure sports - Nepal is fast become the adventure playground of Asia, from world class white-water rafting, paragliding, the world’s highest zip line and canyon swing, bungee jumping, canyoning, rock climbing and mountain biking, there’s enough adrenaline here to quench anyone’s thirst!
Traditional curries - influenced strongly by Tibet and India, Nepal has all sorts of culinary delights on offer. A trip to Nepal is not complete until you have eaten dal bhat with you hands, eaten so many momos you fear you might burst and burnt your tongue on some spicy sukute!
Tigers, rhinos & much more - Nepal is home to some of the most endangered species in the world including the gharial crocodile, snow leopards, sloth bears and the elusive Bengal tiger. There are several nature parks that are great for safaris after volunteering and allow you to escape the crazy Nepali cities!
