2020 DIDI AID TOUR – Lower Mustang, Nepal

Date and costs to be advised
Starts/finishes in Kathmandu

The Didi Foundation Nepal is really excited to offer an aid run to Lower Mustang in the outreaches of Nepal. Consider joining the Didi Nepal team on this feasibility study as they explore the needs and issues facing these communities. Once an isolated and independent Tibetan kingdom, Upper and Lower Mustang are now part of and protected by Nepal. This windswept region lies in the shadow of the Western Himalaya in the northeastern district of Nepal. It is a dry, arid and desolate landscape that oozes Tibetan culture. Join the Didi Nepal team for this new and exciting journey to research and deliver aid to our new outreach schools in Lower Mustang.
