Nepal / Himalayas / Coed January Miami University


Trek the Himalayas, swim through mountain streams, sleep in Nepalese homes—all while having the incredible chance to serve rural villages long-burdened by poverty and highly vulnerable to child exploitation. You’ll see the power of mission-driven partnerships and a global impact that starts at the ground level. Whether you’re building a fish farm or holding the hand of a new little friend, you’ll have the opportunity for God to shake-up your heart—and maybe even the trajectory of your life.

What is the travel like?

It takes over 24 hours to get there and we fly on a commercial airline. Listen to all of your favorite Spotify playlists twice, catch up on sleep, talk to your traveling companions, sleep some more, read, watch movies on your 21st century in-seat entertainment system, or just do nothing…which you probably haven’t done in a long time.
