I went to Nepal in October of 2010 in my second year of internal medicine residency. I went w my husband and another resident - who had been to Peru w Scott in medical school. We volunteered for the medical trek, expecting great vistas, busy clinics, and some hiking. What we received was far more than that. Yes we had amazing vistas, incredible villages, generous villagers, and great hiking, but it was the overall finely coordinated trek that made the experience wonderful. Our cook was fantastic, the porters amazing, and the support staff incredibly fun and helpful. The tea houses and tents we slept in were sparse - but clean and safe and served to get the job done. the bookends of the trip - the few days before and after - were spent in kathmandu at the volunteer house - and the girls there are phenomenal. all our needs were met and they were fun to be around. Coordinated trips to the tourist must-sees around town were provided, and it was an easy way to see a magnificently complex city. We can't wait to go back - it was worth every penny!
