Why we trek?

FIRSTLY

We trek because of the benefits to the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual bodies the importance of breathing in fresh oxygen and moving in Nature.  It is sad that in current times we have to schedule nature into our lives, but it is without a doubt the best way to reset and reconnect to your heart and soul.

SECONDLY

We trek to share our passion for Nepal with people who may not ordinarily feel confident to visit alone. To connect with the beautiful environment and Nepalese way of life. We want people to know that when they trek with us, the money goes back into supporting projects in Nepal, that help educate, promote eco-tourism, and improve lives of the Nepali people.

THIRDLY

We trek because we love adventure, the challenge, we enjoy the food, the hospitality of the people and the natural environment.

We want to share with you what we have found in Nepal, because we value conscious, connected, contribution to communities.

Why Nepal?

Every year Nepal’s brightest and most educated young people leave the country in search of a better future for their families. One of the poorest countries in the world, they take out mortgages against their famillies homes to finance their venture, often leading to severe stress and disconnection from their homes for many years sometimes up to 10 or more. Being a predominantly patriarchal society, often women are left home alone for years raising children, undoubtedly families lose traditions, culture and connection with each other. Unfortunately Nepalis don’t see that they have any choice, with a lack of industry and work opportunities they are desperate to make change.

Education does not come easy in Nepal and if you make it to level 12 let alone get to University, you are one of the lucky ones. Education is expensive sometimes students have to trek more than 3 hours to get to school and in the winter season this is very hard. My husband remembers getting up with the sun to study as there was no electricity and that meant no lights to read.

HOWEVER it is not all doomed I see opportunity and possibility. I was holidaying in Nepal at the time of the 2015 Earthquake and spending a good portion of 2015 and some of 2016 in Nepal, I realised that there is hope to change this growing trend to leave their homes.

Lonely Planet declared Nepal the best destination for Travel in 2017. Travel and Tourism is the biggest industry in the developed world, with more people travelling and having access to adventure every day, spending 1000’s of dollars.

Reconnection Treks, seeks to close this gap and reconnecting families, reconnecting communities, each other through Eco Tourism and Education and adventures in Nepal. By combining tourism and education we seek to create opportunities to help Nepali people stay and work in their local communities creating sustainable tourism based businesses that benefit the whole village. Cross cultural exchange is important in developing Nepal, combined with a sustainable approach protecting their traditions and culture and most importantly paying them what they are worth.

To do this we need your help

PURCHASE

Our Nepalese hand crafted products are sourced through ethical means and we make sure that they are fair trade standard, which supports local craftsmen and women, in particular Chetana women’s skill development and their training programs in remote villages. see our online shop.

More about Chetana Womens Skill Development:

Tara Timilshana is the founder of this small, but inspiring little weaving community. She spends her days, educating young women in remote villages on how to weave cotton in a unique Himalayan way and then buys the finished woven fabrics back the villages to create and design amazing bags. She has a workshop and shop in Pokhara and this is the front of her social enterprise. These women earn an income and in doing so are able to support themselves. In a country like Nepal this is not easy, they are the lucky ones… Tara’s mission is to provide training to more villagers and improve her reach internationally, so that more women in Nepal can have secure income and become independent. She also needs to pay for the training they need and sewing machines.
