Social Contribution

Social Work of Above the Himalaya Trekking has been involved in the social welfare sector since our establishment. We are not only doing the trekking business, but we also believe in our responsibility towards our society. Employers’ actual social works are made for the benefit of their employees.

A part of our profit goes directly to a local community. We help them create homestay trekking programs and introduce new trekking routes in the countryside. We focus on Porter training, education, etc. Therefore, we always give something back to the areas where we work, supporting schools, orphanage houses, recycling projects, and helping disabled people.

We opened The Himalayan Library Sham Bhanjyang Higher Secondary School in Maidi VDC, 19 km west of Dhading District headquarters and about 108 km west of Kathmandu. The Shami Bhanjyang School is the apex public educational institution among five VDCs: Maidi, Dhola, Khari, Nalang, and Salang. These VDCs are meant to be densely populated in the rural mid-hill area.

Gatlang is a traditional Tamang village located in the Rasuwa district of Nepal, in the Langtang region. The picturesque town offers a glimpse into the Tamang community’s rich cultural heritage and traditional lifestyle. Here’s everything you need to know about Gatlang:

Our MD, Purushotam Timasena, went to the school on November 22, 2023, to give 110 pairs of shoes to the school’s kids. The village is about 2200m tall, and the winter brings more cold there. When we were there, we found almost all the students had only sandals and no shoes. For this kind work, Thank you for the great help from our guests, Mike Ferrara, New Hampshire, and Balasundaram Chandrasekhar, Birmingham, U.S.A.

Our social work Support for Nepal Earthquake Victims

Dear all of our family and friends around the globe, we would like to inform you that all of our staff at Above the Himalaya Trekking (owner, office staff, trekking guide, and porters) and their families and relatives are safe and sound from the devastating 7.8-magnitude earthquake that occurred in Nepal on Saturday, April 25.

According to local media reports, a number of buildings and historical landmarks in different parts of Nepal have been damaged massively.

We went to villages to see the situation and found that the people were now safe but had more significant problems regarding shelter and food. We have provided some Tarpaulins, but there is still a considerable demand. Many people are sleeping on the floors without Tarpaulin and food. Due to the electricity cut out, even people with foodstuff cannot prepare it.

We visited the village a second time and provided 3000 kg of rice and other support; considering our responsibility, we are now working on making a few houses for the victims in need as a sustainable program. We are thankful that so many people are helping in the Kathmandu Valley.

However, we focus on more remote villages and mountains with much less support. We must help them with basic needs such as food, fuel, clean water, hygiene products, and, most importantly, shelter.

Our social work Donation to the Thulochaur Computer Study Center

The young leaders and social workers of Thulochaur Maidi, Dhading District. Which is about 115 km away from Kathmandu, started the campaign to open a computer study center for the village. There was no computer institute, so the students and villagers needed to attend the district headquarters or Kathmandu for computer education.

We participated in the opening program and donated USD 1077 to the center. We hope the study center will run smoothly and that the local people will benefit most.
