More than just trekking!
After I did two treks in Nepal in 2006 and 2012, I wanted to go back for a third visit. But after the earthquake I felt I had to do more than just visiting and trekking, so I searched the net and found VSN.
So in November 2016 I flew to Kathmandu. I found VSN very professional and well organised. Very friendly people who helped me with everything. I even got Nepali language lessons!
I went to the Khumbu region by jeep to help building a school in Salleri. I made some friends for life there and lived in a guest family with so warm and friendly people. I lived with Sherpa Nuri and his wife Maya and their beautiful daughter Binita.
After three weeks I returned to Kathmandu to live with Mr Barat and Kabita in Pepsicola. Beautiful people!! My last two weeks I travelled to Pokhara with Sherpa Gelu. He is a guide for VSN … together we did the Poon Hill trek.
I had such a wonderful time in Nepal thanks to VSN and its nice people. I also felt useful at the project in Salleri and I truly want to thank all these people again.
On YouTube you can find some short movies I made about my time in Nepal. Just click Filip Froyen VSN, and enjoy.
