Welcome to Nepal!
Nepal has it all, beautiful scenery, a rich culture, and tantalizing cuisine. Visitors to this Asian country are spoilt for choice with an assortment of exciting sights to see and adventure activities to enjoy. Sadly, most parts of Nepal are heavily poverty-stricken and in desperate need of support in order to improve their lifestyles and living conditions.
Surrounded by the stunning Himalayas, you will find Pokhara, the second largest city in Nepal. In true Asian style, Pokhara is a very spiritual and traditional city boasting various stunning temples that will appeal to your inner being. Prefer a more adventurous take on things? Not to worry, from the vast amount of mountain ranges and scenic attractions like Lake Phewa, to kayaking and a diverse range of trekking options there are plenty of ways to quench your thirst for adrenaline. When hunger strikes, traditional Nepali food will awaken your taste buds with its rich and spicy flavors. Be sure to try one of the local favorite dishes called Momos (dumplings filled with meat). After the Nepal Earthquake in April 2015 all GVI’s projects are focused on providing disaster relief to the communities we operate in.
