Volunteer in Nepal
Join us for Medical Trek Nepal. If you are a medical professional or medical student, we need your help. In Nepal, healthcare can be nonexistent for those living in rural villages. You can choose our 2 week trek to remote villages trekking with our medical team and setting up medical camps; or if you are an intern or student who needs credit, choose our 4 week program that includes 2 weeks medical trekking, then 2 weeks interning at a Kathmandu hospital.
Villagers need medical care we provide on Medical Trek Nepal…
In Nepal, people often go years suffering from illnesses or discomforts that are easily cured with basic medical care. The problem is, they have no way to get to hospitals or clinics in the larger cities of Nepal. Many villages are a few days’ walk from the nearest road; many villagers have no money to take a bus to a city once they get to that road. We have a way to help…we bring the medical care to them! This is more than just the average site-seeing trek in Nepal. As a Medical Trek Nepal volunteer, you use your skills to help others while having an adventure of a lifetime. Be sure to check out some of our highlights from previous treks below, and check out Trekt Himalaya’s news for articles and interviews about our volunteer treks. Our trekking volunteers get mad props (kudos) around the world! Find out why this trek is amazing – learn more here!
