Himalayan Voluntourism (HV) is a social enterprise dedicated to the socio-economic development of rural Nepal through the spirit of volunteerism. We believe in the power of transformation through voluntourism.Tourism is popular in Nepal and supports the Nepalese economy as an important revenue generator. Many tourists come to Nepal every year to experience its unique culture, adventure opportunities and the abundant nature. Combining tourism with social outreach provides a cultural experience that engages the participant in the local community… And it is transformative.



"Thank you for giving my son the amazing opportunity to work on the Nepal Project with you and your team. He came home exhausted but exhilarated. I don't think that he expected to come back feeling profoundly affected, but indeed that seems to be the result. For this I am truly grateful to you! It isn't often that our kids get the chance to really be part of something bigger than themselves and to have a glimpse into the reality of the world beyond their privileged lives. I have rarely seen him so contemplative or moved...this was very meaningful to me as a parent."
-Judy Akavi, parent of IICS 2013 trip student
