Imagine walking in the extreme foothills in Nepal along native village paths, hiking in the mountains with breathtaking views of the tallest mountains in the world and the opportunity to experience the culture and natives.
There are still guest spots open for both tours of the area, which include professional guides, accommodations, food, and knowledgeable staff.
The Langtang Trek, October 24-November 10, takes place near the Tibet border in a spectacularly beautiful area visited by few tourists. This trekking tour is not a climbing expedition, but a mild "trekking" adventure across some of the most spectacularly beautiful places in the world. The second trip, the Arts & Social Justice Tour from November 1-10 are for those who don't want to hike but would rather experience the arts, yoga, music, meditation and philosophies embedded in the ancient Kathmandu Valley culture. There is even an option to extend your stay to do volunteer work with the Voluntourism Extension, Nov. 11-15.
Tour leaders have been taking small volunteerism groups to Nepal since 2011 and are involved in several humanitarian projects there.
If you are interested in attending either tour or would just like to learn more, contact Sydney Frymire at 301-233-7612 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. The FreeWalkers support her efforts and past members have raved about their experience on these tours. The cost for this tour is also very reasonable.
