Meet the Lift Our Planet team in Kathmandu. We’ll meet you at the airport and escort you to the hotel. When we arrive, you’ll have some time to settle in and take in the beauty of the city. In the evening you’ll join us for the official Volunteer Welcome Dinner!
After breakfast, we’ll begin our volunteer orientation. This starts with an introduction to the Nepalese language, cultural do’s and don’ts, and a program overview. In the afternoon, we’ll tour the city and travel off the beaten path to discover the diamonds of Kathmandu.
Begin your first day of service in a school for novice Buddhist monks. Working alongside the daily English teachers, we’ll strategize our next few days of service and introduce ourselves to the students! The students are always so excited to meet new teachers!
Return to the school for another exciting day of teaching the novice monks. We’ll spend the mornings with the students and the afternoons planning the following day with the teachers. In the evening, you’ll have time to explore the nightlife of the city.
Enjoy your last day of teaching before saying goodbye to the students. After we finish our day of service, we’ll travel to Chitwan, where volunteers will be participating in an authentic Nepali cooking course taught by a local cook!
Enjoy any number of adventures during a free day in Chitwan. Explore the local village, jump on board an exciting white water rafting on the Trishuli River, or go to the museum! We’ll help you plan it, but this day is up to you!
In the morning, we’ll take a walking tour of Chitwan and save our energy for the afternoon. Then we’ll be embarking on a jeep jungle safari, where we’ll spot everything from elephants to rhinos. We’ll also be jumping on the water with a canoeing adventure!
We’re leaving Chitwan and heading back to Kathmandu, where you’ll have one last day in the beautiful nation of Nepal. Take the time to pick out souvenirs and enjoy your time with fellow volunteers before a Farewell Dinner at the hotel.
Pack your things and say your goodbyes, because it’s time to head home! A member of the Lift Our Planet staff will escort you to the airport and assist you with checking in and boarding your flight.
