About Us: 

Places and Faces of Nepal started as a photo exhibition on 11 December 2009 at Boudha, a world heritage site of cultural significance as part of ‘Our Mountains Our Responsibility for conservation and Promotion (OMOR) Program as part of the British Council Climate Champion programs as an individual project With a vision to promote Nepal and organize different outdoor learning programs.

Our Mountains Our Responsibility for conservation and Promotion (OMOR) is a campaign on climate change with a focus on different research and exploration journeys to understand more about mountains and mountain communities.

In 2011 Places and Faces of Nepal won the Youth Action support Program to develop a website and to organize a photo exhibition.  In 2010, we started our first Learning while traveling (LWT) programs in Langtang Valley

 

How we started:

From the early 2000s, we made numerous journeys across Nepal to explore, document, experience, and understand our different cultures and environments. Every year and year after our footprint took across a unique variation of topography, biodiversity, beautiful surrounding, people, and culture. From East to West, South to North, from southern lowland Terai (70-300m) to tree-line (4000m) and snow line (5500m) crossing over different beautiful mountain passes, Duns valleys, mid-hills, River system, and people. With these different journeys and subsequent interaction with nature and friendly people, we started making these routes as programs as a learning step to promote Nepal, to show the beauty of nature, and to explore further different environments and practices. 

 

Our Routes and Programs:

Our well-explored trails and programs are full of entertainment and are in harmony with nature. These especially designed fun journeys to explore Nepal, to interact with communities to gain knowledge, to explore geography, culture, and customs of the local and surrounding environment in one of the most diverse countries in the world. Our trails highlight both geographic and cultural diversity that Nepal has been blessed with.
