Nepal is a small yet spectacular country with so much to offer visitors. It has a rich history, with many colourful festivals and sacred religious sites. The country is probably most well-known for its snow-capped mountains, which offer breathtaking views.

Where we are based in Nepal

You can do volunteer work in Nepal in several different locations, such as Kathmandu or Chitwan.


Bright and bustling Kathmandu is Nepal’s economic and cultural capital. It has elements of both modern and traditional life, making it a fascinating place to explore. If your Nepal volunteering project is based in Kathmandu, be sure to visit to ancient temples and monasteries, pick up some souvenirs at the local bazaar, or go on a hike to admire the scenery from new heights.


Chitwan is a district located around a six to seven hour drive from the capital Kathmandu. It’s most famous for its national park, the country’s first, which is also a World Heritage Site. Outside of your Nepal volunteering project, you can also explore small local villages and picnic along the Narayani River. We encourage you to sample some local cuisine, like “taas”, a spicy fried goat dish.

Airport pickup, flights and visas

When you arrive at your respective airport, a member of Projects Abroad staff will be there to meet you. You can find more detailed information on arrival airports, orientation, and visas on our Nepal Arrival Procedures page
