Philanthropic tourism - Philanthropic tourism in Nepal

High Himalayan Trekking and Expedition preserves and enhances the travel experience for future generations. We channel the philanthropic passion and commitment of many travelers to protect and restore valuable destinations we all care about and to support those destinations as engines for prosperity, civil society, and pride in their communities. We dedicate ourselves to making a difference in many lives in rural Nepal, especially those who are highly at-risk.

High Himalayan Trekking and Expedition is unique among small group adventure travel operators as we are a philanthropic travel company that gives back to people, communities and the environment. We go beyond sustainable tourism to what we call transformative travel. Every trip benefits local communities and conservation. We help you connect with people and projects that matter. If you chose to do a charity trek, which involves fundraising for our charity, we will give you the cheapest price possible and we will not make a profit. We care more about helping the community than making money, so we feel strongly that those who are helping Nepal should not have to pay expensive travel costs. That is why all of our volunteering positions are completely free except for minor food and accommodation expenses and have discounted treks or tours. In addition,10% of our annual profits go to our charity organization to support rural schools, libraries, hospitals, and community development projects in rural villages of Nepal. We offer flexible departure dates, and custom itineraries for groups, students, volunteers and family adventures. High Himalayan Trekking and Expedition creates unforgettable travel experiences while having a positive impact on the communities.
