Nepal: Langtang Valley

post-earthquake school Rebuild


Langtang Valley, nestled in the Nepalese Himalayas just north of Kathmandu Valley bordering Tibet, is home to 4,500 Tamang and Tibetan people. 

Following the April 2015 earthquake, a massive avalanche completely wiped out Langtang Village and rebuild efforts have been slowly taking place due to its remote location.

This beautiful guided teahouse trek in the breathtaking Himalayas comes with helping villages rebuild communities and schools. Our project funds the entirety of the Komin Shyamey Wangphel Secondary School rebuild located in Syabru Besi town. Participants have the opportunity to volunteer, work with and learn from locals, and experience the peace and serenity of some of the highest valleys and peaks in the world.  The Langtang Valley trek is the third most popular behind the well-known Everest Base Camp and Annapurna Circuit treks and is the perfect introduction to Himalayan trekking.

  • Donation toward rebuilding the school

  • Volunteer work and equipment at the school

  • All food and accommodation within trip dates

Trek Relief invites you to save the date for our greatest accomplishment yet - the completion of a $50,000 USD multi-year project to rebuild the Komin Shyamey Wangphel Secondary School, located at a gateway town to the Himalayas. Volunteers will explore a remote, alternate trek in Langtang that ends with the handover ceremony celebrations.

A highlight of our 14th trip to the Rasuwa District will be our highly anticipated Trek Relief School Handover Ceremony with school officials, students, teachers, and the local community in attendance. During the ceremony, volunteers will be joining hands with the students and community to create an interwoven mural of handprints to beautify the school. This physical, lasting mark is dedicated to honor the tremendous collective effort it took our volunteers and Nepalis alike to make this rebuild possible.

Detailed itinerary coming soon - look forward to a new, less-traveled route to discover another side of the Himalayas!
