Hike NEPAL & Support Women's Empowerment. SAVE $500!

  • Nov 19, 2013 · 7:00 PM

Join us as we hike in Nepal’s Himalaya, support women's empowerment and celebrate a memorable Thanksgiving. Join Meaningful Trip founder, Joe Staiano on this special Founder's Trip and get $500 off!

Start in exotic Kathmandu where golden temples, fluttering prayer flags and chants of Buddhist monks will delight all your senses. Fly to Pokhara, gateway to the Annapurna. Get to know about EWN (Empowering Women of Nepal). EWN helps train disadvantaged rural women of Nepal to be female trekking guides – the first of their kind! These amazing women will be your guides! Your trek directly supports EWN and their Children’s School. Hike past terraced fields and giant rhododendrons. Stay overnight at guest lodges in ethnic villages. Stand in awe as the peaks of the Annapurna Range are displayed before you. And, as good as all that sounds, it might just pale in comparison to the warmth and friendliness of the Nepalese people.
