Classic Annapurna Trek + Community Project

Awesome scenery of Himalayan peaks, authentic cultural experiences and a hands on community project that will help a remote mountain school is what you will sign up for on this youth adventure. Join us for this unforgettable experience in Nepal to trek in the Annapurna foothills where around every corner you'll be struck with the dramatic views of the mountains. Your adventure beings in the fascinating capital, Kathmandu, where you'll soak up the atmosphere, visit Hindu and Buddhist temples and also have time for some shopping before flying to the Annapurna region. On the trail there'll be plenty of opportunities to experience the lifestyles of the small Hindu villages and to interact with Nepali school students. We've identified a small village in the Annapurna region where you will work side by side with the locals to improve the local schoolhouse. This will be a real highlight where students will be fully engaged in village life. With sensational Himalayan panoramas as your constant source of inspiration, even when you get back to Pokhara for a free day of adventure in this relaxed lakeside town, your first taste of the tallest mountains on earth will leave you wanting more!
