One of World Wide Trekking’s founding principles is giving back to the places we travel. Through our sister non-profit, Human Outreach Project, we are making a difference in lives around the globe, and connecting trekkers with voluntourism opportunities in local communities. We have a number of diverse projects in Nepal that WWTrek guests can get involved with.

The Human Outreach Project started with the decision to support Ang Pasang’s children after his tragic death. Our projects in Nepal have grown to include trekking dental supplies in to the remote Namche Dental Clinic, supporting the Himalayan Rescue Association by rebuilding the Manang medical clinic, and improving the conditions at Juving Secondary School by adding a solar powered computer center and an industrial water filter. We have also supported many other projects, including emergency earthquake relief and cataract surgeries; find out more at HumanOutreachProject.org


Best Time of Year to Visit:

Spring (March – May) and Fall (September – November) offer the best trekking weather in Nepal. During these seasons temperatures are moderate and skies are clear; whereas the monsoonal season (June – September) is extremely raining and the winter is very cold.

Arrivals & Departures:

This trip begins and ends in Kathmandu, Nepal. You will fly into and out of Tribhuvan International Airport (KTM).

*Many guests prefer to arrive before, or leave after, the scheduled itinerary. We can help you make arrangements. Additional charges for early arrival, transportation, lodging, meals, and activities will apply.

Recommended Flights:

International airfares are not included in program pricing. There are many flight options to Kathmandu Tribhuvan International Airport (KTM). Our travel expert, Bruce at Harr Travel is more than happy to help you with all of your travel arrangements. You can reach him at bruce@harrtravel.com or 415.827.6493.

We also recommend that you protect your flight with travel insurance and a refundable ticket. Contact AIG Travel Guard to get more information.

Customs, Visas, & Immigration:

You will need a Nepal Entry Visa. Upon clearing customs in Nepal, you will be required to purchase a 30-day entry visa. The visa costs $40, so make sure to bring cash with you. It helps to have exact change. In addition, remember to bring two passport photos for the visa. Waiting to try and have these taken in the Kathmandu airport will not only cause you undue delays, but it also tends to be exceedingly expensive.

*Note: Please be sure to have at least six months validity on your passport. Most countries won’t allow travelers in their country unless their passport is expected to expire six months after the last day of travel. Make two copies of your passport, leave one at home and bring the other with you to Nepal along with two extra passport photos in case of an emergency. Ensure you provide a copy of your passport to WWTrek 90-days prior to your departure date.

Travel Insurance:

We recommend you safeguard your trip by purchasing travel insurance. World Wide Trekking has partnered with AIG Travel Insurance as our preferred travel insurance provider. For a price quote, or to purchase travel insurance, visit

Sherpas: The people of the Khumbu

The Sherpas are an eastern, indigenous people living in the eastern regions of Nepal. The word Sherpa is a combination of two Tibetan words, “Shyar,” meaning east, and “Pa,” or people. They are indeed easterners both in origin and present location of settlement, as they migrated from Eastern Tibet and now live in Eastern Nepal. Traditionally, Sherpas were farmers and traders. Known for their strength and relationship to the mountains, the Sherpas now primarily work in mountaineering, trekking, or portering. Therefore, the Khumbu region is well known as “Sherpa Land.”


There are over one hundred different languages spoken in Nepal by the various ethnic groups. The main language spoken throughout the regions of Nepal, is Nepali. Our trek will take us through the Khumbu Valley where the villagers speak Sherpa, a Tibetan dialect, as well as Nepali.

Culture & Religion:

The people of Nepal are as diverse as the land that sustains them. Inhabiting different altitudes, various ethnic, tribal, and social groups have maintained their unique heritage for centuries.  Since the 1950’s, many Tibetan refugees now call Nepal home and contribute to the country’s vast array of culture.

Eighty percent of the population practices Hinduism. Hinduism is the world’s third largest religion as well as the oldest. Originating in India, Hinduism’s eclectic religious, philosophical, and cultural roots are characterized by their belief in reincarnation—one absolute being or soul reborn multiple times in various manifestations until enlightenment is achieved. Ten percent of the population practices Buddhism while the remaining 10% are either Muslim, Christian, or Kirant (an indigenous religion). Both participants of Hinduism and Buddhism share many of the temples throughout Nepal, as their beliefs are similar. Often times, religious and cultural practices are difficult to distinguish as many individuals often employ dual-faith practices.


The official currency in Nepal is the Nepalese Rupee Introduced in 1932, the Rupee is abbreviated Rs. Check online for current conversion rates.
