Itinerary

Day 1: Arrival in Kathmandu

Upon your arrival at the Tribhuwan International airport a representative from Naata Trek and Tours will be waiting for you at the airport displaying a playcard imprinted with your name.

Day 2: Trip orientation and drive to Gorakha

We will have a trip orientation at breakfast and then we will travel to one of the villages of Gorkha which lies at the epicenter of the earthquake. We will be using 4WD jeeps and we will have to walk for a few hours as well. The journey from Kathmandu to Gorkha will take us around 8-9 hours. We will be focusing on five villages: Aruchanaute, Arbang, Manbu, Thumi and Arupokhari. We will decide whether our group will go to one village or more depending on the size of our group.

 Meal : Breakfast, lunch and dinner
  Accommodation : Teahouse

Day 3: Home rebuild

We will start to rebuild homes today for the next four days. We won’t be indulging in works that require technical skills but will do simple activities such as painting walls, mixing sand and cement, carrying house building equipments such as cement, bricks, stones etc. We will be hiring professionals to do the technical bit but if you have building skills then you can help them as well.
We will try and re-use the available resources like woods, bamboo, stones, rods from the damaged houses which will reduce the amount of cost for the rebuild so that we can utilize the funds for other essential stuff. We will be building eco-friendly houses as much as possible by utilizing the available natural resources.
Our main motive for the trip is to help rebuild the houses of the locals and you can help out in anything you feel essential. We will camp tonight in Gorkha.

 Meal : Breakfast, lunch and dinner
