Porters' rights

During your trip, you will spend a couple of days trekking up through the beautiful Himlayan landscapes to the villages of Bupsa and Bumburi where Moving Mountains is working in partnership with the communities.

 

All volunteers and visiting groups are accompanied on the trek by porters who are from Bumburi, Bupsa and the surrounding villages. They assist volunteers and staff with carrying luggage and project supplies, for example equipment and medication for the medical clinic.

Moving Mountains works in collaboration with their partner organisation and supporter Adventure Alternative to provide employment and improve working conditions for porters in Nepal. You can learn more about this here and understand more about what is being done to support porters.
