Ghorepani Cleaning Trek

At the end of each trekking season, Mountain Delights organizing a “clean up trek” taking like-minded people into these areas.  With the assistance of porters, our guests would be asked to pick up rubbish as they come across it while enjoying the scenery. Rubbish would be collected from alongside the tracks and mainly would include tissue paper, plastic, tin and glass.  All rubbish collected, disposed of correctly and items to be recycled will be transported back to Kathmandu.Obviously with that many people using these tracks annually, we also hope to start some communication with the tea house owners along the way and provide education and alternative ways to dispose of the waste products. So, if you would like to join us on this cleaning trek to help clean up the more densely trekked areas in Nepal – please click here for more details.
