Travelling with a purpose!
............................................................................................................................................................................................................................................
If you plan a trip to Kathmandu and intend to experience more than overcrowded guesthouses in the very European alike Thamel, we may just have the right answer for you!

Not very far away from busy Kathmandu you may experience the tranquility and adventure of the rural Lalitpur district and discover the different colors of Nepalese culture. Get to know the local villagers along with their many customs and sneak a peak at their daily lifestyle!

In order to raise funds for our various community projects, we plan different trips to authentic rural Nepalese villages around the Kathmandu valley. Most of these citizens do not yet profit from the recent tourist hub in Kathmandu as only few travel agents operate in this very remote areas. Most of the villagers are farmers and craftsmen with an average annual income of less than USD 250. By visiting the area you not only gain lifetime experience but also support the local community.

With trips lasting from ½ day to a 4 day trek there is surely something for everyone! Please feel free to check out our different package options. If you can't find what you are looking for, don't worry. We are happy to customize a tour to your special needs, just ask for it!
