This camp will provide an exposure to local as well as Tibetan culture. The volunteers will study the history of Tibet and how the Tibetans had to leave Tibet to live in exile in this place. Inter-cultural learning will broaden horizons of volunteers on issues concerning environment and livelihood. Depending on situation, Volunteers may also work on facelift of local school, create learning opportunities for children and teach and play with children or even be involved with a cleaning drive in this touristic area. They can witness the Tibetan New year celebration.

A cook will be there but volunteers are expected to help him and occasionally cook their own meals. Self-management is required. Sleeping bag is required, especially, if you are looking for or interested in trekking.
