Nepal is a mecca for those looking to experience a vibrant culture, stunning mountains and awe-inspiring scenery. Your two-week expedition will give you the chance to see these things first hand!
You'll be trekking in the Annapurna conservation area, taking in amazing vistas, teahouses, shrines and bamboo forests. You will also have the challenge of summiting the famous Poon Hill.
A World Challenge expedition offers so much more than a chance to trek these beautiful mountains. You will also take part in a community engagement phase, where you will be living and working alongside a local community. Despite the earthquake, which struck Nepal in 2015, the host villages remain as welcoming as ever and there is valuable work to be done to get them back on their feet. You will get a real sense of what it means to be part of a Nepalese community.
How about the chance to try your hand at some white water rafting along the Trusili River, situated in the foothills of the Himalayas? In Kathmandu you will have one final chance to soak up the vibrant culture of this warm and welcoming country. Nepal is a true expedition destination in every sense of the word.
