Voluntourism

Despite housing eight 8000ers and so many wonderful landmarks globally known, Nepal still is an underdeveloped country. The urban areas of the country though house all the modern facilities and services, there are plenty of communities in the far-flung villages of the country lacking these services and the public in these communities are still unaware of so many basic knowledge that help them to spend the quality life. Hence, the voluntourism in Nepal is one of the emerging aspects of country’s tourism business. Now after the quakes of 2015, Nepal needs more volunteer tourists to rebuild the communities devastated by the quake and give these communities a new hope to start all over. For the professionals and gap year students Nepal caters abundant opportunities to volunteer, which eventually covers the tour of new destination, incorporates cultural exchange and also makes a positive impact in the communities you volunteer.
