If you were inspired by Christophe Noel’s “Do-Good Diaries” article about Nepal in Issue 24, you now have the opportunity to live the adventure for yourself and help thousands of people as you go.
“…into the lowlands and high Himalayas of Nepal to provide safe drinking water solutions to those in need. This two week adventure begins in the ancient city of Kathmandu before heading west into the fertile lowlands of the Terai. From there we’ll visit corners of the country few foreigners ever see.”
Christophe has told us that a quarter of the available places on the Clean Drinks Adventures Nepal tour in March/April 2019 have already been taken by readers of Overland, with more than a dozen more donating to help thousands of people get access to safe, clean drinking water next year. There are now only a couple of places left and Christophe is keen for them to also be filled by our readers.
“As we work our way into the deep river valleys and steep hillsides of the Rolpa region, we’ll visit a number of remote villages to introduce them to the MSR SE200 Community Chlorine Maker. Each team member will be supplied with their own unit and get the chance to deliver it, person-to-person, to village leaders. Our guide and translator, Vishu Sijali, will help facilitate the handoff.”
Book on the CLEAN DRINK NEPAL – March 28 – April 8, 2019 tour before the end of December and get a free flight-seeing tour of Mount Everest at no extra charge (usually an additional fee of $225)
The tour cost is $2,800 (not including flights to/from Kathmandu) and each participant is required to fundraise a minimum of $750. The March/April tour alone aims to provide 1,500+ people with access to clean drinking water.
“We continue to push eastward towards some of the highest mountains in the Himalayas, and the world. We’ll end the trip in the beautiful lakeside town of Pokhara. Start to finish, we will spend a total of ten days on the road. The travel will be hard, if just because the roads and conditions are often challenging. The days will be long and full of mishaps and uncertainty. Adventure, as they call it.”
