Free Volunteering In Nepal
Pristine Nepal Treks & Expedition has been coordinating for free volunteering in Nepal since its established. Many of our clients ask for volunteering. They would like to help needy people of Nepal while they travel to Nepal. Whenever they search for helping people as a volunteer they always find NGOs and INGOs who charge big money for it. So we thought of why this cannot be free. They will help. They will contribute to needy people. Since we started to coordinate for free volunteering in Nepal. We built up a homepage for free volunteering https://free-volunteering-nepal.org/ and of course, many people started to come here.
Volunteers pay for their food and accommodation only. We have fixed that as well. This is very cheap. They pay USD 10 per day per person in Kathmandu directly to the host family. The host family provides at least two times Nepali food, accommodation, wifi in a day. And volunteers pay Nepali Rupee 800 (USD 8) per day per person directly to the host family on the mountain. The host family provides at least two times of food and accommodation in a day.
You are requested to respect Nepali culture and custom. You have to enter the host family house before 9:00 in the evening.
On the other hand, most of the volunteers come with us for free volunteering and the most important thing is they do some trekking or tour because they are in Nepal and Nepal is most attractive and appealing nature for the traveler. And it is not sure they will get a chance to come to Nepal only for traveling. So now, we decided to provide free volunteering + package tour. We will provide this free volunteering only them who buy at least a package tour from us.
We have a very short and sweet and cheap package trip for those volunteers. You may choose any of them. At the moment we have four different packages:
free volunteering + Rafting in Trishuli River
free volunteering + Kathmandu heritage tour
free volunteering + Chitwan Jungle Safari
free volunteering + Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek
This tour is designed for volunteers only.
Chitwan is a home of wild elephants, rare One-Horned Rhinoceros as well as the elusive Royal Bengal Tiger & much more flora & fauna, & is very famous for jungle safari. And it is not just some ordinary safari, it is done by riding on the top of the elephant.
Also here lies Chitwan National Park which is the first national park of Nepal & the UNESCO world heritage site. The Rapti river is just perfect for alluring sunrise & sunset view as well as relaxing Canoeing ride. The community of people with their culture & traditions, natural beauty, clean & fresh environment, luxury restaurants & bars is more than enough reason to travel this place.
What is the best time to go to Chitwan?
You can visit any season and can enjoy your holiday with wild animals and the natural atmosphere. For those who love jungle walk or jeep safari, February to May is the best time. At that time the old grasses will burn and new grasses will come and it will be more open and chances to see more animals from a far distance.
In the summertime, you can see animals wallowing in rivers, lakes or water holes. If you would like to enjoy the Nepali festival and wildlife safari at the same time than October and November is the best time. The biggest festival of Nepal Dashain and Tihar (the festival of light) falls on these months.
