Youth Expeditions and Trips to Nepal
Schools, Guides, Scouts, Cadets and Youth Groups
Educational Group Treks and Fully Organised Community Projects
Travel is the ultimate way for young people to develop independence and confidence. By giving students ownership of their Lost Earth Adventure, students develop leadership, personal responsibility and team working skills. Each student will have the opportunity to lead the group, taking responsibility for decisions during the expedition, and also have to work together as a team to achieve their objectives.
With the option to blend adventure and socially responsible volunteer programmes, a Lost Earth Adventure will allow students to step out of their comfort zone, push their physical limits and expand their world view by understanding how people live in other cultures and communities.
Welcome to Nepal, let the adventure begin!
The adventure section of the expedition can be trekking, biking, white water rafting, or a combination of any number of adventurous activities!
You can choose to trek to the iconic Everest Base Camp, Annapurna Base Camp or a whole host of other famous Himalaya passes and peaks. Students will either stay under canvas or in mountain huts, giving them a chance to really experience what life in the Himalaya is really like.

Group Community Projects
Our socially responsible volunteer programmes are designed to make a difference to the communities we work in as well as empower the students. All of our volunteer programmes only run if we know they will genuinely have a positive impact on the communities we work in.
By encouraging our Adventurers to look at the bigger picture, they will develop a sense of pride for what they have done to support the development of lesser-advantaged communities. Alongside this, the work in-country will help students will develop confidence, improve their team-work, and deepen their cultural understanding.
The combination of fundraising prior to departure and active participation during the expedition means the teams become as invested as we are in these projects. This means our Adventurers go home with the memories of an unforgettable, life changing experience that will help them grow into mature, socially conscious global citizens.
Once you have returned home, we will continue to keep you updated with the progress of any projects you have been involved in.
