Travel to experience the sights and sounds of daily life. Step outside marked trails and explore villages. Trust yourself but make friends along the way. Travel solo but don't be alone.
2017 solo traveller SANIYA GIRI shares her incredible journey of discovery along the villages of Western Nepal. She explored through Dang, Rolpa, and Pyuthan as well as visited Palpa and Lumbini during the 20-day solo travel.
This year, in 2018, we will support 10 dynamic Nepali women to travel solo anywhere in Nepal. We provide full funding and mentorship support. We have worked with 28 women travellers since 2015.
