What do you believe?

Should the privileged in this world help the less fortunate? Should your life be about giving, not just taking?Should personal growth best achieved through applied knowledge and lived experience? Is travel about growing as an individual for you?

At Hands on Development tours we believe that connections between people and the experiences created by travel can enrich and change the world. We also believe that travel should always benefit both those traveling and the communities they visit.

That’s why Hands on Development tours to Nepal provide life-changing travel experiences for travellers and support the social and economic development of the communities they visit. 

Our tours are perfect for school groups, universities and mature age travellers
