Sustainable Tourism & Social Enterprise Development
The Nepal Trust uses tourism, the world’s largest industry, in a responsible way as a driving catalyst for job
creation, income generation & local (economic) development in the poorest parts of Nepal. The Nepal Trust
organizes & runs (commercialized) ‘Treks-to-Build Health & Community’ throughout Nepal to develop the Karnali
region by combining business with sustainable development. The Nepal Trust is supported by UNESCO to promote
Humla Eco-tourism and develop the Humla Natural & Cultural Trail and by UNWTO/STEP/SNV to implement the much talked about Great Himalaya Trail Development Program (www.greathimalayatrail.org), which has been promoted through the Trust's efforts in partnership with Sean Burch (www.seanburch.com) and Rotary International District 3292 - Nepal.
