TESTIMONIALS FROM OUR CHARITY TREK TO ANNAPURNA BASE CAMP
“If you only have one chance to trek in Nepal, The Kumari Project Annapurna Base Camp Trek is the one to do! From the first climb to the last descent, you are immersed in the majestic beauty and spirituality of Nepal. The well trained and fun-loving staff offers assistance at every turn and you experience the Himalayas in a very unique and inviting way. This wonder is seamlessly complimented by close interaction with the powerful work that the Kumari Project is doing to positively impact the lives of Nepalese orphans. This trek will transform you." - Kate, Trekker 2015
"The Kumari Project 2015 Annapurna Base Camp Trek offered a great opportunity to balance an individual physical challenge with days spent among an outstanding support staff and congenial companions sharing a mutual interest in bettering lives in Nepal. What a combination! There are many options for trekking in the Himalayas. I have done so independently for forty years. However, this trip revealed not just the beauty of the landscape but provided for special interactions and insights into the daily activities of those in Nepal. It was a wonderful chance to see the efforts of Arun, Beth, and all working with the project up close. Meeting the children was a uniquely rewarding experience. I look forward to repeating this adventure on a future Kumari Project trek." -Michael, Trekker 2015
"Trekking in Nepal has been on my must do list for 25 years. The Kumari Project provided the impetus to finally turn 'wouldn't it be nice' into 'Now's the time!'. The passion that Arun and her amazing mother Beth so clearly have for their mission is both inspiring and sobering. The Kumari Project is providing not only security, wellbeing and health to children, but is giving these kids a chance at a vibrant future. A future they would very likely never have without Kumari. Arun and her team are helping to change the world one small fate at a time. I am so grateful that I was able to be a small part of that change; all the while fulfilling a life long dream of trekking in Nepal. A trip that was well beyond all of my expectations. Thank you Arun and Beth for an experience of a lifetime!" - Rachelle, Trekker 2015
