These treks are suitable for any walker looking for something a little more challenging and energetic. They are a combination of some longer and shorter walks and hill-walking experience is desirable. The duration is usually from 10 to 15 days. Following the up and down terrain of Nepal and walking to higher elevations contrasts these treks to those in the easy classification. However, you will be rewarded for your efforts with spectacular close-up views of glaciers and of the high Himalayas. Although the terrain is not difficult, some vigorous hiking experience is useful. There may be up to 6 hours a day on the trail and the elevation rises and falls from 800m/ 2624ft to 4000m/13210ft above sea level.
(Dhading Sertung, Lapa and Chalish village). Our teaching programs are most important to us. We feel that only through education will Nepal ever be able to rise above its historic economic and social dysfunction. You do not have to be a professional teacher, though these are highly prized; you simply need an open heart and a desire to improve the individual understanding of children and adults of academics and the world in general. We have a volunteer-generated teaching manual and will work with you during orientation to prepare you for the classroom.
The children in our area begin learning English in grade four in our school and grade one in private school, so it’s not a surprise that most of the student has a basic level of English. The benefits of learning English from a native speaker are inspiring for the young children.
Whoever interested to volunteers in rural elementary schools in our village to assist the local teachers with their English classes and other subjects. These volunteers are able to experience living in rural villages and will observe the true meaning of “community.” As a volunteer with our Teach English Program, you will have the opportunity to give these children the education and support they need and deserve.
Most of our schools welcome volunteers who want to get involved in other aspects of school life or run extra-curricular activities and after-school clubs.
