About Us

Insight Nepal

Insight Nepal was established in 1992, with a vision that Nepal will become one of the most sought- after tourism destinations in the world while it continues to develop socio-economically.

Our mission is to provide Nepal's visitors with hands-on cultural experiences through volunteer placements that can create values to various communities in need.

Insight Nepal's programs work towards the goals of:

  • Promoting an awareness and understanding of cultural differences through experiential learning
  • Building a spirit of friendship between the people of Nepal and the developed world
  • Provide opportunities for those who are interested in contributing their time and skills to benefit worthwhile community service groups
  • Develop new skills, gain confidence and new perspectives on life

At Insight Nepal we value:

  • Mutual respect to each other's cultures and foster cultural exchange
  • Learning from each other
  • Socially responsible living
  • Eco Tourism
  • Personal and individual support to each volunteer
  • Keeping in touch
