Social Journeys Special

Socio-Adventure .

giving something back to the society while having fun

Social Journeys offer Western travelers a deep insight into the culture of remote Nepalese communities through our history of working within the area, providing development solutions. With every project we work on, we offer you the opportunity to trek with us, to actively participate in the work, learning skills, sharing cultures and making new friendships. It is tremendously satisfying to work alongside a Nepalese villager, helping on community development efforts which will make such a positive enhancement to the life of the community as an integral part of multifaceted approach to the alleviation of poverty. The treks provide a good source of income to communities visited, as we source the majority of our trekking resources directly from the local area. Village home-stays encourage intercultural exchange, mutual understanding, and learning, all of which foster the sense of a 'global family.' We encourage communities to provide services for travelers and help them to develop their resources, skills and linkage between tourists and the communities.

What to expect in the villages:
Village life is simple and basic, but Nepalese hospitality is very warm. You will stay in a separate guestroom with a Nepalese family. All houses have a toilet and a water tap close by, but electricity, flush toilets, and hot showers are not available in villages. Your hosts will serve you typical Nepali food "Dalbhat" (rice, lentils and farm-fresh vegetables)or some other food items they normally use. You might be entertained provided by the community, this will be in the form of traditional Nepali dancing and singing and community may ask you to join them. During your stay you will be able to see and feel what it is like to live the life of a Nepali villager - walk with your family while they go about their daily activities, tending animals, tilling the fields, going to school with the children etc. At the end of your stay, you will be overwhelmed by the farewell that your new family will give you. If you never come this way again the village and its people will remain in your heart forever.

Remember, Nepal is one of the poorest countries in the world! Be prepared that the facilities and hygienic conditions are below Western standards. There are also differences in traditions and norms (see below). The people's desire to welcome you into their community, however, is genuine and sincere. Having a foreign guest is a great joy and honor for them. Pleasing you as much as possible is their gift to you.
