Nepal Service

etr’s service programs are varied, but each delves deep into the culture of Nepal while providing rewarding and insightful service projects. Since 1993, students from all over the globe have provided energy and enthusiasm to build classrooms, plant trees, refurbish hospices and orphanages and work in schools. As each etr program is custom-designed, we are confident of finding just the right fit for your group.
Our students were both impressed with the organization of the trip and delighted by their experiences. They particularly appreciated being able to help at the school and are already talking about donating/sponsoring children/going back in the summer.

The trip was wonderful, and both Kent and Vishnu were incredible guides.

Honestly, the trip exceeded my expectations, and I am planning on recommending that trips with etr become yearly occurrences for our group and others.

One currently popular program is a six night Kathmandu base program which provides four days of service at one of Kathmandu’s needy orphanage / school. The physical work will consist of cleaning, painting and general refurbishment while the interaction comes in the form of teaching English or math, sharing story-telling or teaching a game new to the residents. When not at the site, we will explore the capital and venture to highlights such as Durbar Square, the hill top Swayambhunath temple and the dominating Buddhist stupa of Boudhanath in Little Tibet. We’ll engage with experts on social issues such as health, poverty, human trafficking as well as the positive effects of social entrepreneurship. The program can end with either a nearby day long trek along the hills of the Kathmandu valley, or, time permitting, a two day, one night trek.

As all etr programs are custom designed, we can amend the duration and program of visits to meet your criteria. Recommended duration: six or seven nights.

Our Airline Partners


For over 24 years etr has enjoyed partnerships with the world’s leading airlines including British Airways, Thai Airways, KLM Royal Dutch Airlines, Singapore Airlines, LAN Airlines, Royal Jordanian, South African Airlines, Swiss International, Air France, Austrian and Cathay Pacific, amongst others. And as airline agents we can secure for you the lowest available fares, even from remote locations, and even from some of Europe’s budget airlines. What we often suggest to many of our out-of-Europe client schools is for them to get a fare from a local agent and we’ll get one from our airline contacts here…and then use the lowest one. As we do not mark up airfares, you benefit financially. Take advantage of our flight expertise…all at no cost to you.
