Annapurna Trek 13 Days with 3 Days volunteering is for those who want to get seamlessly involved in a social cause while at vacation in the Himalaya. Nepal is still recovering from the massive damage of the 7.8 magnitude earthquake that hit the mountainous country on April 25, 2018. The earthquake left 9,000 people dead and over 13,000 injured.
Many volunteering organizations are involved in earthquake recovery issues. So, in this volunteering trek, we will instead focus on an orphanage instead. We have chosen ‘First Ray of Hope’ orphanage in Dhapasi, Kathmandu which Adventure Club Trek supports as a part of our corporate social responsibility. Many schools have been severely damaged and have still not completely recovered. Adventure Club Trek has also been donating manual labor and financial help in school rebuilding in villages.
If you arrive for the trek during the rebuilding process, you can become a part of it as well. As for the orphanage volunteering, we are always looking for people who can make a good impact and teach the children something new. And, we believe a few days of interactive session with our trekkers will be an interesting event for the children. We will volunteer at the orphanage from Day 3 to Day 6. We leave for Pokhara on Day 7 and start the trek the following day from Nayapul.
We trek through the famous rhododendron forest trail in the Annapurna region. Our trail is quite literally covered with colorful flower pets in the bloom season, spring and autumn. Views of Mt. Machhapuchhre ( 6,993 m), Annapurna I ( 8091m), Annapurna range and Dhaulagiri range among others add to the magic of this trek.The major highlight of the trek is the sunrise view from Poon Hill (3,200m). Watching the Sun rise over some of the most stunning and highest mountains in the Himalaya is spiritually uplifting experience. Adventure Club Trek offers other short treks in the Annapurna region-Ghorepani poon Hill Trek-9 Days and Annapurna Circuit Short Trek-14 Days.
Note: Your safety is of the utmost concern whilst you are traveling with Adventure Club Trek. We will make every effort possible to follow the original itinerary but we reserve the right to change that itinerary if a segment of it becomes a safety issue. Certain mountain regions are remote, natural disasters can happen, weather conditions can decline and there can be illness or an injury. To avoid dangerous situations we may occasionally have to make changes to the itinerary to ensure everyone’s safety. That having been said, Adventure Club Trek will strive to provide you with the best possible trekking experience and to keep your safety our number one priority. We thank you for your understanding.
Prior to all the treks and expeditions, Adventure Club Trek hosts a pre-trip meeting in Kathmandu. The primary purpose of the meeting is to provide an opportunity for individuals to ask questions about the forthcoming trek and to introduce other team members. The meeting covers topics as diverse as personal equipment and acclimatization and usually involves a hike and some skills training. Pre-trip meeting is very important in order to have a better preparation of the trekking.
