Generally school/organization starts at 10 a.m. and is over at 4 p.m. More often than not, school runs 6 days a week and Saturday is a holiday. On that day the volunteers can get together and share their experiences. They can travel to nearby towns to purchase things for daily use and other areas in case of longer vacation. Besides their teaching time, volunteers can utilize their spare time in organizing the youth and women's groups of the community to do some worthwhile activities regarding avoidance of plastic materials and raise awareness about income generating programs.

Home stay / Cultural Exchange
Home stays and cultural exchange programs can be arranged in most touristy and remote areas of Nepal. Participants will be placed with a Nepali family in a small rural village. This provides the volunteers with an excellent opportunity to learn about all aspects of Nepali culture, lifestyle, language, food and people.

Example projects include: creating "green" clubs, planting a flower garden, planting trees, garbage management, recycling programs, Jute and paper bag training and more awareness program, etc. Volunteers may also provide own their ideas, skills and knowledge about environmental issues.

Community Health Post Volunteer
This Program places volunteers in health posts, sub health posts and health clinics. You work in either an urban or rural setting, providing primary care to locals in your specialty. Moreover, if you have doubts about whether your skills and talents are really needed in this part of the world, consider this: The doctor-patient ratio in Nepal is about 1 to 36,000. Particularly in rural areas, where much of the local people live, there is a desperate, chronic shortage of medical personnel and supplies. Medical school students' activities will include things like following doctors on their rounds, exploring different treatments for simple ailments, providing physical therapy, and participating in vaccination programs. Of all of our programs, we are perhaps most proud of the Medical Volunteer Program and the invaluable contributions of independent-minded professionals like you. You will help to relieve the suffering of others, playing a critical role in the villages and towns where you'll serve. Please feel free to contact us for more

Stone Festival at Meghauli Village :

Future Nepal wants to make the people aware of the importance for stones. So they developed the co...ncept of the stone Project . Future Nepal has started to apply this ‘stone project’ in our village. It ha...s selected committee members and have decided to hold the ‘ stone festival’ at the Meghauli Village in Chitwan on Feb. 4th, 5th and 6th for 3 days which is the very first festival and distinguish of it’s kind in Nepal (may be world). The village community has embraced the project with open arms. If we join our hands we can achieve anything. As we all know ‘an ocean starts with a drop of water’ - so also can a community start with one stone . Every foundation starts with a stone — so that is very important. Stones can be found everywhere in the village area so why not use these stones to start developing our village. What is the Stone Project : The aim of this project is to develop our village ourselves. We have asked each person to donate Rupees 1.- per day or one kilo of stones per day that would mean per person 365 Rupees or 365 kilos of stones per year. Those wishing to donate more are welcome to do so. We use the stones and money to develop the most important areas in the village — like parks, children’s library, retirement home, orphanage home and roads and bridges and much more. Why don’t you come and join us and help us in our new ‘ stone project’. We hope that our, help ourselves ‘stone project’ will one day become Nepal wide We invites all interested national and international volunteers to be part of our Stone Festival. Come with expertise and help , share and learn or come with no expertise and learn together. Your small effort can make a big difference to people in the most marginalized communities !!!

Nepal offers excellent trekking options to visitors from the easy walking excursions to the strenuous climb of the snowy peaks. The most rewarding way to experience Nepal's natural embellishment and cultural assortment is to walk through the length, breadth and the altitudes of the country. Trekking in Nepal is a big part of the ultimate Himalayan adventure and a majority of tourists have trekking as a part of their itinerary.
One can also trek on ponies in some remote places, which is equally enthralling for visitors. Pony treks follow nearly the same routes and are offered mostly in western region of Pokhara, Dolpo and Lo Manthang (Mustang).


Nepal has earned the reputation of one of the best destinations for white water rafting. Cruising down rushing rivers of crashing waves and swirling rapids can make up excitement of a lifetime. Rafting trips for some is the highlight of their stay in Nepal. The waters in Nepal offer something for everybody: Grade 5-5+ rivers with raging white water rapids for the adventurous, to Grade 2-3 rivers with a few rapids for novices. Rafters also have a choice ranging from two to three-week trips to trips of two or three days.
The options include paddling, oaring and kayaking. Paddling requires all on boat to participate with instructions from river runner. Luxury safari-style trips with full team are available too. In an oar boat, the guide rows alone giving participants a chance to observe the surroundings. Kayaking is another way to travel downstream. A few companies offer inflatable kayaks, or fiberglass kayaks for hire while some arrange for kayaks on their own.
A typical day in the river begins early morning when participants arrive at the site. Instructions on safety and emergency situation are given to participants before the event. Life vests and helmets are worn by participants at all times during the trip. Meals are provided during the trip. Some packages also provide river equipment and camping equipment. The best time for rafting is from October through mid-December and March through early May. In winter hypothermia may be hindrance to some. During monsoons months of June through September, the white water sections are dangerous, but gentler stretches are easy to raft on. So far the government has opened sections of 10 rivers for commercial rafting.
