Nepal information


Hi there

You are welcome to freely download the track notes and useful information about trekking in Nepal provided below.

Children in the remote Tsum Valley have very poor access to educational materials so we have started fundraising to help them. 

Our Tsumba friend Lobsang says "Chhokangparo is one of biggest household in upper Tsum . Large number of childrens also and school is still in poor condition. We try to better education but still many lack of physical facility and mentally reading culture and value of education in own soil . If this project will success we also have the biggest satisfaction in life to do something for own community". Here are some photos taken by Lobsang.
