The misery of a 7.8 magnitude earthquake on April 25 was shared the most by Rasuwa followed by other parts of Nepal. Consequently, Rasuwa was declared a red-alert zone by the Nepal government instantly. The disaster claimed over 8,000 lives and affected 8 million people. Langtang Valley alone lost 400 lives, flooded away by an earthquake-triggered avalanche, destroying an entire village and infrastructures. The district is still suffering and needs support from all sides, especially to re-maintain its position as one of the most famous trekking destinations in Nepal.

One of the most affected aspects in the Langtang Valley is education. During our field assessment, we found all but one school currently in operation in the area. The locals are not yet ready to reconstruct schools and send their children in upper parts of the valley due to fear. Mixing an unforgettable trekking experience with good deeds, we have come up with an amazing itinerary that will not only provide trekkers with pure Himalayan adventure, but also an opportunity to be a part of change.

Here’s what we are trying to do:

  • Fundraise for Shree Nepal Rastriya Primary School in Khangjim. We commit 100 US $ for every trek we sell to the school committee, to help them for school development and infrastructure reconstruction.
  • Provide our client’s with a new perspective to experience Langtang National Park – one of the most famous trekking routes in Nepal.
  • Provide our clients with the opportunity to take part in volunteering activities to make travel more exciting.
  • An opportunity for students and teachers in remote region to indulge in cross-cultural environment of learning.
  • Allow Langtang to welcome as much visitors as it used to before earthquake.

BACKGROUND OF THE SCHOOL

Shree Nepal Rastriya Primary School is located in the lower part of Khangjim-VDC. This is the only existing school from lower to upper Langtang route, as all the other schools were completely destroyed by the April 2015 earthquake. The school runs classes for 1st to 5th grade students, who are a total of 46 students. They have only one building (one storey) with 4 rooms including the office. The building has cracks as a result of the earthquake. The school is in need of serious public attention and ideas of renovation. It is currently equipped with only 5 teachers.

ACTIVITIES

1. Volunteering

If you are someone who believes helping others is the best way to travel, this trip is for you. We donate 100 US $ from every trip we sell to the school management committee. We also offer volunteers opportunities to extend their support in the field. You can get involved in the following activities in the school for 2 days:

  • Teaching English (alphabets and words in lower grades and basic conversation in upper grades), Mathematics, Science and other subjects
  • Taking part in extra-curricular activities (sports, team-building and debates)
  • Hand-washing and nutrition classes
  • Arts and Crafts classes. (Origami, basic art classes). You may have to bring color pencils and/or coloring books etc as the school will most likely lack those items)

2. Trekking

We will leave for Langtang Valley Trek after spending some days in the school. Be with us as we ascend the pine forests, rocky dunes, Yak meadows and the mighty Kyanjin-Ri (Langtang View). The Sherpa culture starts to make more sense as we climb, with occasional encounters with donkeys, horses, Yaks, wild boars, pheasants and the vegetation inside one of the most popular National Park area of the country. The Valley has wide range of vegetation, wildlife, glaciers, local culture and fresh air for us as we walk by.
