Gokyo Lake Medical Camp

29 days | Fixed Departure: April 21 - May 19, 2015 | Min. 2 persons. | Max altitude: 5,545m | Moderate Trekking


NMMT Medical Camp Trek 2015 has been designed with an objective to provide basic medical services to the deprived people of Khari Khola village and other nearby villages while exploring the area on foot. The services we provide will be free of cost while at the same time enjoying an opportunity to interact with the local people and learn about their customs and cultures. NMMT has been conducting this free medical camp trek program since 2005 with joint collaboration of The Band Aid Box, New Zealand. However, from 2013 we have been conducting this program on its own with Dhulikhel Hospital team and international Medical Volunteers since the contract between NMMT and The Band-Aid Box got terminated in 2012.
Come and enjoy your holidays in the Himalayas while offering free service for a noble cause.
