Trek Relief

Nepal: Langtang Valley

10 days | post-earthquake school Rebuild

Fundraising Minimum: $2,200
Early Bird Discount*: $1,500
*Deposit due November 15, 2018


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.

Includes:

  • Donation toward rebuilding the school

  • Volunteer work and equipment at the school

  • All food and accommodation on the trek

  • Trek Relief expert guides and porters

  • Premier Trek Relief trail services

  • 2 nights accommodation in Kathmandu
