Clean Up Expedition
- Langtang Base Camp
"In a gentle way
you can shake the world."
We're looking for adventurous people who want to have a positive impact!
Join us on this amazing trip to the Himalayas trekking to the sacred Gosaikunda Lake, through the Langtang National Park and reaching Tsergo Ri at 4 983 m.
Nepal is a stunningly beautiful country, with the world's highest peaks and some of its most loving, welcoming people. While we are deep in the Langtang National park we join the clean up at Yala Peak base and high camp, organised by Nepali mountain guide instructors, international outdoor leadership students and the local community.
By taking action, sharing knowledge and empowering others we support healthy, clean and vibrant places and communities, while having an amazing adventure!
On this expediton we trek for 6 days to Mardi Himal Base Camp in the stunning Annapurna mountain range, reaching 4 500 m, and travel on a 6 day river expedition on the Kali Ghandaki river, camping on the white sandy beaches and paddling through beautiful lush landscapes.
We also spend time at the eco-adventure centre The Royal Beach Camp, visit Pokhara a city at the foothills of the Himalayas and explore the ancient capital Kathmandu.
By cleaning up along the mountain trail and on the river beaches as we travel and sparking conversations with other trekkers, paddlers, guides and locals about its impact and opportunities to do things differently, we become a force for inspiring change.
