Nepal’s Great Himalaya Trail (GHT): Mountains and Village Stories
A long-term project is to launch a trekking trip in Nepal to support and advocate for the remote villages along the Great Himalaya Trail (GHT). This will encompass producing a written publication and a documentary film that will focus on the daily lives and the varied ethnic groups along the GHT while promoting tourism in these regions of the world.
As we forge ahead with TWB, we will be adding other projects to include working with other non-profit organizations that promote trekking, local tourism, and social changes in underrepresented mountain villages globally.
Support a Trekker Project
Do you have dreams of quitting your job to go on a unique trekking trip? Do you wish to trek a remote trail that no one has heard of? Are you a blogger or a writer who wish to go on an adventure and share your experiences with others? Or do you wish to produce a video or any other forms of media that will promote the lesser known trails or your unique adventure? Part of our mission is to assist individuals in achieving their dreams towards their version of “freedom” on the mountain trails while promoting lesser known trekking regions globally. Please contact TWB to discuss possible collaboration.
