In the Foothills of the Himalayas

Countries: Nepal
Volunteer in the heart of rural Nepal. In remote villages in the Himalayan foothills, you’ll get to experience authentic Nepali culture.
Summary

In the Foothills of the Himalayas

Temples and paddy fields. Motorbikes and buffalo. Prayer flags and dusty plains. Nepal is a country of incredible colour and diversity. There's so much more to Nepal than snowy mountains and yaks, as you'll discover on a Raleigh expedition, by becoming truly immersed in the local culture.

How does it work?

Spend five, seven or ten weeks in rural Nepal. Living and working alongside local people, you will work to rebuild houses destroyed in 2015's devastating earthquake. You and your team will be making a difference making homes for rural families. 

You'll also have the chance to develop your leadership and teamwork skills. We'll support you through an exciting adventure leadership challenge, during which you'll trek in the foothills of the Himalayas - some of the most stunning mountain ranges in the world.

Why Raleigh?

With Raleigh, you can rest assured that your work will have a positive impact. As a charity, we're committed to supporting communities to develop. We are also dedicated to ensuring that you, as a volunteer, get as much as you can out of your expedition. We'll make sure that your time with us is structured and supported, and that you return home with newfound levels of confidence and resilience. A Raleigh expedition is challenging, but it's also exciting and fun. You'll make friends from around the world and come back with memories that last you a lifetime.

When can I go?

We run expeditions throughout the year. Places go fast, so we recommend you sign up around six months before you want to go.

You can find out more on our website, which has full details of departure dates. If you want to find out more about our expeditions, you can also give us a call or an email, and we'll be more than happy to answer any questions!
