Clean Up Expedition
- Kali Ghandaki & Mardi Himal.
"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 two sacred natural wonders, the Machhapuchhre mountain and Kali Ghandaki river, and make a difference!
Nepal is a stunningly beautiful country, with the world's highest peaks and great rivers. But these magnificent places are feeling the toll of unregulated development.
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.
