Charity Trek


Charity Trek

We offer charity treks and tours throughout Nepal. We also offer a discount travel package to the organizations that are working for physically disabled people and visually impaired persons. Our trips are operated fully with the ethics of responsible travel codes.

Trekking Encounters offers Charity Treks to support in the 'Rebuilding Nepal' mission after the devastating earthquake of April 25 and May 12, 2015. The popular Everest Base Camp, Annapurna Base Camp and Poonhill Ghorepani Trek are available to book. 10% of the trip cost will be given to its 'Charity Fund'.
There are three major 'Charity Treks' designed at the moment. The popular Everest Base Camp Trekking - 14 days (US $1450 per person), Annapurna Base Camp Trekking - 14 days (US $950 per person) and Poonhill Ghorepani Trekking - 7 days (US $550 per person) are available to book.

Trekking Encounters ran a Charity Trek to Everest Base Camp in October, 2010.

There were seven VIPs (Visually Impaired Persons) in the team namely Drew, Eddie, Fiona, Jacky, Jen, Natalie, Dean and seven UK guides Amanda, Bob, Derek, Diana, June, Linda and Rhona. The team also supported a school in Kathmandu with some stationeries and books.
We send our very special thanks to Dean and Rhona who supported the school financially to build up some funds for scholarships. Trekking Encounters aims to find more opportunities in building up scholarship funds for the remote and underprivileged children of Nepal. The girls of indigenous casts and war victimized children also need support suffered from the 10-year long Maoists insurgency.
