The stunning trek through Ruby Valley, Dhading District, Nepal

This isn’t your average trekking trip—no pity tours or savior complexes needed here. We invite young-to-middle-age adults (18-40) to come, see, and be inspired by the resilience of the communities we work with in Nepal. At the beginning of their time in Kathmandu, participants will visit with KOSHISH and learn about the work that they do through their women’s and men’s recovery homes and their mental health reintegration project. Then, for 6 days, participants will hike through northern Dhading, observing MCC’s earthquake recovery work with Shanti Nepal before trekking out east via the Ruby Valley for 6 more days.  During the trek, participants will continue to get exposure to the lingering effects of the 2015 earthquakes and the resilience of local communities by walking through these villages and interacting with local residents.

Who should come: 

College students, MCC constituents, former SALT participants, trauma studies researchers and practitioners, mental health professionals, engineers…this Learning Tour is for anyone who enjoys trekking and is interested in learning more about what resilience looks like in the context of MCC’s work in Nepal. Due to the physical fitness required by a 12-day trek, all participants must be in good health and have recent prior experience with trekking over hilly and semi-mountainous terrain.

Dates & Cost:

April 1-19, 2019 | $1000USD + airfare
