This once in a lifetime cultural immersion and adventure tour in this charismatic spiritual country is not to be missed!

Throughout the trip you will be travelling as part of a group, sharing unforgettable experiences as your senses awaken to the sights, sounds and smells of Nepal.

First Leg - Kathmandu Introduction

Your first week is designed to introduce you to the Nepali way of life, giving you the opportunity to explore the history and culture of Nepal, with visits to local sites of special interest, starting in the capital city, Kathmandu. Frontier representatives will take you on an exciting city tour which includes the chance to see the unique parts of the city. You’ll also visit some important historical and cultural landmark sites, including the orientation tour to Bouddhanath and talks given by academics on the country’s religion and history. Following this wonderful opportunity to fully immerse yourself in your new surroundings, the briefing for your imminent adventure will begin. You’ll be feeling happy and confident to begin exploring the intricate beauty of Nepal!

Second Leg - Adventure Time!

From here you will leave the hustle and bustle of Kathmandu behind as you head out on a short hike around the surrounding villages and experience the idyllic life of rural Nepal, before joining an adrenaline packed white water rafting adventure along the Trisuli River!

When you have dried off you will continue on to the humid plains of the south and the wilderness of the Royal Chitwan National Park, home to the famous one horned rhinoceros, wild elephants and tigers! You will round off this action packed leg with a well deserved rest in Nepal’s most popular city, Pokhara, set at the foot of the Annapurna range and on the shores of Lake Phew.

Third Leg - Trekking in the Annapurna Region

The third leg of the trip will commence with the amazing 5 day trek to Poon Hill, against the back-drop of the Annapurna mountain range – expect welcoming tea houses and mind blowing views. On the way back from the trek you’ll receive a relaxing authentic Nepalese massage.

The next day you will attend a Yoga and Meditation class, where you will learn how to hone your technique and achieve relaxation like never before.

Fourth Leg - Volunteering Placement in Kathmandu

The last leg of the tour will see you take part in a rewarding community volunteering project, where you can assist and lend a helping hand at the project of your choice. Our Frontier coordinator will train and give you assistance during this week, so you’ll be prepared in no time!

We run a number of community development projects around Nepal, including teaching projects, orphanage programmes, building projects, and organic farming.


You will be collected upon arrival at Kathmandu airport by a friendly local staff member and transported to your scheduled location. Once you have had time to rest the local staff will introduce you to your project and the local area. Your in-country coordinator will be more than happy to help you settle in and acclimatise and you'll feel at home in no time in this friendly, vibrant country. Please aim to arrive on a Sunday.


Throughout the project you will be staying in a variety of local guest houses on the route of your road trip. The volunteer facilities are comfortable and clean. You will most likely be sharing a room with other volunteers and you will have basic bathroom and bedroom facilities. Internet access isn’t guaranteed in the accommodation, however internet cafes can be found nearby.  A member of our staff will be accompanying you on your journey and will always be on call in case of emergency 24/7.


You will be provided with three meals a day breakfast, lunch and dinner. Meat consumption isn’t allowed in the volunteer centres therefore all meals are vegetarian; however feel free to eat what you like when out and about. Food in Nepal is delicious, varied and inexpensive. You can enjoy sampling traditional Nepalese cuisine; dishes such as delicately spiced curries, fresh local market produce, and delicious meat, fish and vegetables. There are many specialities to try so you are sure to find something that you love!
