Himalayan families face an impossible choice for their children:

WITH FAMILY BUT WITHOUT FUTURE

OR

EDUCATED BUT WITHOUT FAMILY

Many Himalayan children are sent away by their parents at age 4 - 6 years old for education in the city.  

Without support, they will never see their families again.

Snowland Journeys

We enable Himalayan children to maintain contact with their families, alongside their right to education, 

develop livelihoods for mountain communities, 

and provide meaningful exploration 

for international trekkers and school groups.

Education & Family

We enable children to be reconnected with their families

in remote mountain villages of Western Nepal.  

We support and mentor young people through education.

 

We provide development opportunities for

Himalayan communities in need.

"Inspiring and rewarding,

would change anyone's life."

We invite responsible travellers to trek to Nepal's Himalayas with teenagers returning home to see their parents for the first time in 12 years.

Family reunions made possible by the sharing of the journey.

 

Life-changing experiences for Himalayan children and 

trekkers alike.

The children, journeys and communities we support are featured in the award-winning documentary film, Children of the Snow Land.  

Our Projects

Our programme of support to empower Himalayan people is enabled by individual and corporate donations.

TREKKING EXPEDITIONS

RECONNECTING FAMILIES THROUGH ADVENTURE

Snowland Journeys offers you the exclusive opportunity to become part of a unique story.

We offer small groups the exclusive opportunity to join expeditions which enable young people to journey home when they graduate school aged 16.

Join a unique and meaningful experience enabling teenagers to be reunited with their parents after 12 years being educated away from home.

These important family reunions are only made possible by you sharing and financially enabling their journey.

 

What do the children experience?

"On the journey I got my mother's love and realised what she sacrificed for me."

OUR PATRON

JOANNA LUMLEY

OBE, FRGS

Joanna has graciously agreed to become Patron of Snowland Journeys.  She has a long association and interest in Nepal and its people inspired by her father's service as an officer in 6th Gurkha Rifles.

Joanna says:

"I went to boarding school; but I was eight, and I came home for the holidays and therefore was with my family as I turned from being a little child into a teenager.  Imagine not seeing your parents and home for 12 years!  The remote mountain villages in Nepal are notoriously difficult to get to; and yet imagine the black and white choice between home life or being educated miles away."
