The earthquake of magnitude 7.9 that struck Nepal on 25th April, 2015 made a huge impact on the lives of the Nepalese. It led to the destruction of many historical monuments, made many Nepalese deprived of their shelters, took life of more than 8000 people and injured more than 23000. It brought damages to Durbar Squares of Kathmandu, Lalitpur and Bhaktapur. Dharahara got collapsed in the catastrophe. The day was remarked as a black day in the history of Nepal. The condition was worsened by a subsequent quake of magnitude 7.3 which hit the country on 12th May, 2015.

But the disaster has not taken away the determination and faith of Nepalese. Not long after the country and its people went through the devastation, people joined their hands in rebuilding Nepal. With the aid and support from people around the world and in co-ordination with the Government and local people, reconstruction works have already begun. If the work continues at the same pace, then it won’t take long to regain what the natural disaster has taken away. Would not it be perfect to support in rebuilding the nation which is one of the famous tourist landing place? The Himalayan kingdom needs your contribution to recuperate the loss. Nepalese need your encouragement and helping hands.

Itinerary

 

Pick-up from Tribhuvan International Airport, meeting with your guide and transfer to the Hotel. After the check in, there’ll be a meeting regarding the volunteer work as well as all the programmed activities. First, visit some areas of Kathmandu – a walk to the devastated Kathmandu Durbar Square and explore the complex with the beautiful palaces, temples, shrines and courtyards built by 

the ancient Nepali kings between the 12th and 18th century. This visit will be an opportunity to see the damages caused by the earthquake in the Durbar Square. Then, we take you to Thamel - the vibrant tourist area with hotels, restaurants and outdoor shops. Then, back to hotel and a short briefing regarding the technicalities of the trek. In the evening, you will get to enjoy a welcome dinner with Cultural Dance.

Overnight stay at Hotel.

Depending on the needs and the availability of volunteers at the time of your travel, you will be helping in:
- Nuwakot: The small district Nuwakot (Nine Forts), just about 2h drive northwest of Kathmandu, is one of those untouched Newari districts that seems to float somewhere between the 17th and 21st centuries. It’s one of Nepal’s undiscovered gems and worse hit by the first earthquake.
- Dhading: Dhading: This is the only district that borders West of Kathmandu and its land crosses Nepal from Northern Himalayas to the jungles of Chitwan in the South. Due to this, it is an area with an amazing diversity of cultures and ethnicities. Being so close to the epicentre of the first earthquake and the underdevelopment of most areas of Dhading, this was also one of the most affected areas.
- Rasuwa: This district is accessible from Kathmandu via Pasang Lhamu highway (H21), with its headquarters (Dhunche) being about 120 km from the capital. In the district alone, over 597 people lost their lives and over 700 got injured due to the disastrous earthquake and its aftershocks.


The relief works in these areas will be focused on:
    1. Shelter: After having provided tarpaulin, solar power sources, and other materials necessary to build and reinforce temporary shelters for communities living outdoors after their homes were destroyed or rendered uninhabitable. We’ll help in the reconstruction of the houses.
   2. Educational Continuity: To support education programs for children from families who have suffered casualties and for whom educational opportunities are severely threatened. We will be  helping at the local primary and secondary schools.
   3. Reconstructing Local Institutions and Resources: To initiate rebuilding of local resources such as water tabs and local community institutions such as health posts, temples, monasteries that have been debilitated or destroyed.


*        In case you have specific knowledge and/or abilities, please, let us know in advance so we can locate you where your help will create a greater impact.
*        Stay with a Nepali family in house or temporary shelter depending on availability.

 After breakfast, start scenic drive to Pokhara Valley via Prithvi Highway. Pokhara region hasn’t been much affected by the earthquake. Upon arrival in Pokhara, check in hotel for refreshment. Then, we will visit famous places in this city:
-Fewa Tal: Tal means lake in Nepali. Fewa Tal is the second largest lake in Nepal which covers an area of about 5.23 sq km which makes it suitable for boating.  During boating in this lake, we can enjoy it’s beauty by watching the enchanting surroundings and photographing the picturesque mountains. This is a life time experience which no visitor would like to miss during their stay in Pokhara.
-Temple Bahari: Built in the middle of Lake Fewa, the temple is one of the attractions of Pokhara valley. It is dedicated to the Goddess Ajima which is believed to protect the gods from the demons in the form of Goddess Durga (resemblance of power).  Overnight at hotel.
