Immersion and solidarity – Thadi – Spring 2016

KSP wants to renew the program for Spring 2016, in March and April. The first visits started to create new cross-border links between Western and Nepalese villagers who do not live on all trekking trails.

These exchanges and sharing around a common project can be a great opportunity to allow Nepal villages (most of the country) to advance, to progress and eventually create small reception structures (home of hosts) for a different tourism product with focus on learning cultures and traditions. Nepal is made up of many ethnic groups with different customs and languages; each region has its particularities, every village its singularity.
