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.

This physical, lasting mark is dedicated to honor the tremendous collective effort it took our volunteers and Nepalis alike to make this rebuild possible.
