Interested in trekking through the Himalayas, catching views of striking mountains, checking out local schools and Sherpa villages AND benefiting the local communities where you’re traveling? Edge of Seven is running a trek this fall (Oct 21st-Nov 4th) in Nepal’s Everest Region. While the region is best known for its popular trekking villages and peaks, this trip will also visit a number of off the beaten path villages, monasteries, and humanitarian projects. It is often these sites that offer the most culturally rich perspective of the region. The trip will culminate in a visit to Edge of Seven’s Salleri Girls Hostel, a project completed in 2011 that enables 40 Nepali girls to achieve a higher secondary education.
To give adequate time for preparation, we encourage participants to sign up before the end of June. For more information and/or to sign up, please email Emily Stanley at email@example.com.
