Why not make a trek on homestay basis, to be sure to get to try all of the specialities of the region?
Or, in case you are interested in seeing the projects supported by Beyond Borders Ethical Adventures you are always welcome to come with us and have a look and learn more! Read more on our projects and social engagements here.
As Nepal has a big problem with voluntourism, especially at orphanages, we are not supporting any kind of volunteering with children as long as the volunteer does not have adequate education and can provide a paper of background check from their home country.
