Are you up for the challenge?
Volunteer in Nepal – Join us for Medical Trek Nepal. If you are a medical professional or medical student, we need your help. In Nepal, healthcare can be nonexistent for those living in rural villages.
Villagers need medical care we provide…
In Nepal, people often go years suffering from illnesses or discomforts that are easily cured with basic medical care. The problem is, they have no way to get to hospitals or clinics in the larger cities of Nepal. Many villages are a few days’ walk from the nearest road; many villagers have no money to take a bus to a city once they get to that road. We have a way to help…we bring the medical care to them!
What is Medical Trek like?

How You Can Help…
With our Village Medical Camps, our team of volunteers sets up a tented medical clinic for three days in each area to treat the men, women, and children of rural Nepal. They get much needed care, and you get an experience of a lifetime! We take you there! Groups and individual sign up available. TREKT Himalaya and Mountain Fund have teamed up to provide you this awesome volunteer opportunity… check out the video and join us for the next Medical Trek Nepal!

Description: Trek with us to the remote regions of Nepal. We start our trek in Gorkha, the heart of Nepal where the culture began, in the high hills with amazing Himalayan views. From there we trek to remote hill villages stopping to provide medical care and set up our medical clinic at Mulpani. Trek locations change throughout the year based on the needs of the villages, so trek itineraries are subject to change… But this means you can sign up next year too and see a whole new area of Nepal! We’d love to have you!

Last March, our medical camp was able to treat over 1000 Nepali villagers in 3 days — so be prepared to get busy! Some common ailments among villagers are skin problems, gastro-intestinal illness, dental problems, dysentery, eye problems, untreated wounds, ob-gyn care, and infant-child wellness needs. Depending on your specialty and skill level, you will be assigned to various treatment areas. We need doctors and nurses for exams and treatment, medical assistants and students for triage and we also have opportunities for non-medical volunteers to handle administrative duties and to boost morale! The Nepali villagers love seeing the medical teams and volunteers come away knowing they gave much needed help and had a totally unique volunteer travel experience.
