Nepal is a country of amazing and wonderful extremes. It is the steepest country in the world. It goes from the height of Mt. Everest to the tiger prowling jungles below. Between are valleys rich in 2,500 years of culture where Hinduism and Buddhism met and created glories of spiritualism. Within these valleys flow the glacier-fed rivers that are swift, wide and exiting. Some monuments have been classified by UNESCO as World Heritage Sites for the eye to behold and the soul to be experienced. Nepal offers unique pleasures for every volunteer tourist, trekker, wildlife enthusiast, mountaineer, rafter, art and culture connoisseur, archeologist, poet, scientist and environmentalist. Discover the world of mountains, rivers, jungles and the rich cultures while you are contributing to the sustainable development of Nepal.
