A philosophy of Keep Walking Nepal is to train and educate local men and women as guides, group leaders, porters and cooks to assist with the organisation’s trekking experiences. In addition to the trek related skills that the locals gain through these practices, they are also trained in English and wilderness medicine skills. The idea behind this development is to halt the exodus of some of Nepal’s brightest and youngest by providing them with early employment opportunities and a reason to remain in Nepal.
