Take on Nepal — Volunteering & Trekking in Nepal

“Take On Nepal is truly an incredible organization. Along with empowering boys and girls to provide themselves with a better future, the company also doubles as trekking consultants - providing the same young men and women whom gained an education through Take On Nepal, the opportunity to use their well earned language and social skills to guide clients and volunteers through the Himalayas.

“I had the unbelievable pleasure of participating in the July volunteer program, as well as trek through Sagarmatha National Park's Three Passes and up to Everest Base Camp for 17 days. A huge majority of my trek was spent in the company of a lovely young lady named Phulmaya Tamang, whom was born, raised, and later educated in Batase Village, the grassroots home of Take On Nepal.”

Are you wary of the big, soulless multi-nationals that seem to dominate the adventure holiday scene? Are you looking to volunteer but find the corporate nature of so many volunteering companies to be at odds with what you're trying to do?

Look no further. Take on Nepal are a small Australian company founded two years ago by Nepali born Som Tamang and his Irish wife Susan Devitt. We have deep roots in the mountain communities of Nepal, and all the local knowledge required to give you the experience you crave.

If you're looking to explore any of the popular trekking routes such as Everest Base Camp, Annapurna, or the Three Passes, one of our treks is sure to appeal. Want to go off the beaten track, or don't feel quite up to Everest? Our Langtang treks are designed just for you.

Do you want to volunteer in Nepal? To work in schools and villages up in the mountains? To make a real difference to the lives of the village children? We've been placing volunteers in Som's home village of Batase for years now, and we work closely with the Friends of Himalayan Children charity founded in Cairns, Australia by Som almost 10 years ago.

If it's trekking you're looking for, we're the company for you. If you want to volunteer, then we promise you a volunteer experience that will live on in your memory for years to come. And best of all, volunteering with us, you really do make a difference.
