Adventure and Volunteer Program

Fact-Sheet
Travel and Adventure,VIN

Economically, Nepal is one of the poorest countries in the world and yet one of the richest in landscape, wildlife and culture.  Nepal has been one of the top 10 destinations for the adventurers. Year upon year volunteers and trekkers come here to give their time and to experience all that Nepal has to offer.  At VIN, we recognise that your time is precious and while you want to give it to help developing Nepal, you also do not want to miss the chance to explore.  In response, we have designed the Adventure and Volunteer Programs, allowing you to volunteer and explore and trek safe in the knowledge that the staff at VIN have carefully arranged the details.

VIN Adventure and Volunteer Program allow you to participate in natural based activities which has the power to enhance lives in unique and positive ways. You get chance to engage in Volunteer Trekking, and Volunteer Travel Tour under this program. It helps you in healthy character development and self-discovery through challenge and adventure. So you will be giving back to the community in need while exploring the natural beauty of the country.

Nepal is home to eight of the ten highest mountains in the world.  Since Nepal’s borders were opened in 1949, this small, landlocked country has become the ultimate destination for trekking and volunteering to the adventurous global population.  But the mountains are only one of the draws: explore the temples and stupas, for Nepal hosts some of the most important Buddhist pilgrimage sites in the world; explore the great rivers by kayak or raft; fly above Everest and the Annapurnas; Paragliding in Pokhara or take a safari in the jungle landscape of Chitwan or enjoy the Himalaya from Nagorkot.

VIN’s overriding objective is the empowerment of marginalised communities, with a focus on women and children.  Since early 2007, VIN have been implementing its integrated community development works in rural communities of outskirt of Kathmandu valley and have begun implementation in Okhaldhunga, the Everest region. Our Adventure and Volunteer Projects help to fund our community work.  All the profit from running these opportunities is used to support our efforts in marginalised communities.

Whether your heart is in the mountains, the stupors or in the flat lands and hillsides, VIN can enable you to lend a hand as a volunteer without missing out on the splendour and diversity of amazing Nepal.
