Explore Himalaya recently organized a trek to Annapurna (Ghorepani- Poon Hill) for a group of dentists from UK. After their trek, the group devoted two days of their Nepal stay in conducting a dental camp. The dental camp was held at a local school (Heritage School, Tikathali) in Kathmandu. Around 300 students, plus teachers and guardians received free dental check up as well as lessons on dental hygiene.
An excellent and charitable concept for professionals travelling in a group to Nepal (or other less developed countries), ie, imparting or utilizing one’s professional skill to help needy locals, while taking in the sights!
