Trip Summary

See full itinerary

Make a real contribution to the lives of Buddhist monks and immerse yourself in the culture by volunteering and living in a Buddhist monastery.

 

Check out the Blog: Volunteering in a Nepalese Monastery

 

You’ll be getting involved teaching English to the monks during the day and fun activities and games in the evening- a welcome break from the children’s’ studies and a time for everyone to relax and get to know each other. You’ll even have the opportunity to join the monks in meditation and prayer sessions, gaining a unique insight into this fascinating culture.  

You’ll be living and eating with a Nepali family so you’ll have opportunities to experience the culture that you wouldn’t have if you were in a hostel. You’ll also be travelling to your volunteer place of work by foot or on a bus – more great ways to get a feel for Nepal. If you want, you can have some typical Nepali clothing made especially for you so you won’t even look out of place! 

 

Discover Nepal. You’ll have plenty of time to explore. It is full of breath-taking and spectacular natural views. This is Himalaya country – enough said.

Destination info

Nepal is a country of superlatives. It’s in the Himalayas and the country has eight of the world’s 10 tallest mountains and 240 peaks over 20,000 feet. And, of course, it is home to Mount Everest, the highest point on earth (let’s give it its Nepalese name: Sagarmatha)

  • Location: Kathmandu, Nepal

The project works to create global relationships between Nepali people and the international participants volunteering in the country, with the aim for both parties to gain a better understanding of their respective cultures and lifestyles. By sharing experiences and learning from each other this is a valuable project for both the local people in Nepal and the volunteer.

 

The whole idea of the project is about volunteers coming to Nepal to experience the culture and sharing their own with the local people, so without volunteers the project would not exist. By taking part you will be improving the world by making global friendships and emphasising values such as tolerance and peace.

 

How have previous volunteers helped the project? We asked our in-country team…

 

“Monastery Monk children have to learn Buddhism, Tibetan language and Mantra and do not usually have a chance to learn English. Having English speaking volunteers at the Monastery helps the children to learn and practise the language. Books, pens and writing copies are also supplied to the monastery to help with their development.” 

What you should expect: 2 to 12 weeks

  • Location: Kathmandu, Nepal

The monasteries vary in size. Some have about 30 pupils aged from 7 to 13 years old and others can have a massive 400 resident monks!

The schools in the monasteries provide classes in a number of subjects for the monks. The classes are divided into groups ranging from upper kindergarten of age 8 years to classes for 13 year olds. Attendance at classes is voluntary for the monks so class sizes tend to fluctuate! Ability levels in each class can also vary.

You’ll be teaching English for 3-4 hours a day Monday to Friday and also organising fun activates in the evening for the children. Mornings and late evenings are your free time but you will have to opportunity to really immerse yourself into the Buddhist culture by joining in with meditation, rituals, prayers and songs with the monks.

Introduction to Nepal: 5 days

  • Location: Kathmandu, Nepal

This is your introduction to Nepal - its culture and language – and to the project you’ll be working on.  

The first few days are all about settling in to Nepal. You’ll have plenty of time to get a taste of the culture, meet your fellow volunteers and shake off the jet lag so you’re ready and raring to start your project. Check out the culture and history with visits to Boudhanath, one of the most holy Buddhist sites in Kathmandu, and UNESCO World Heritage Site, Pashupatinath Temple, one of the world’s most significant Hindu Temples. Don’t miss the spectacular architecture of Durbar Square with its stunning plazas, temples and water fountains and be sure to try traditional Nepalese Momo (dumpling) from one of the many street vendors.

You’ll also find out a lot of information about your project, where you’ll be placed, learn a few language basics and meet and move in with your host family and get comfortable with them. 

Getting stuck in : 2 to 12 weeks

This is something totally different – just too good to miss if you’re at all interested in Buddhism. You’ll not only be working with the monks, but living with them and you’ll have the opportunity to immerse yourself in Buddhist culture on this unique volunteering experience.

You don’t need any teaching experience. As a volunteer you’ll be working with intelligent and educated adults, so you should have good written and verbal English and you’ll need to be flexible and patient.

Please note: While we will always take your preference on the type and location of volunteering into account this is dependent on availability and the needs of the various projects at the time of your stay.

Chitwan trip: 3 days

  • Location: Chitwan National Park

This amazing wildlife adventure in Chitwan National Park is the perfect way to spend your last few days in Nepal. You could be lucky enough to see some of the rare animal species native to that part of the world- Bengal tiger, Asian rhinoceros and leopards. You’ll also have the chance to do some canoeing, meet some baby elephants in a sanctuary, walk in the jungle and visit some Tharu communities.

What were the highlights of your trip?

Staying at chitwan safari, teaching obviously experiencing the nepal way of life.

The in country team are seriously nice, I have gone back to their home (where you stay for orientation) to celebrate shiva ratri festival and will be celebrating holi festival of colour with them. Lovely family, seriously welcoming.

Do you have 3 top tips for future travellers?

1- bring a sleeping bag/liner and thermals because nights can be super cold, but you do get used to it. 2- bring an unlocked phone and get a Nepali SIM card, make sure you have the numbers for the in country team just in case (I've had to call them so they can tell my taxi driver where to go on a few occasions, plus they're happy to help you with anything).
