Sikkim Bhutan Trek

What a wonderful time we had on our trip! It was so well organised...from all World Expeditions' help at the planning stage to the actual trip itself. In particular, we absolutely loved the trekking and that was largely due to our fantastic guide Norboo. He was so focused on our having a great experience...from the food (our requests were always fufilled) to our comfort on the trek, and our safety.

Criteria for project selection

The following criteria have been set for the selection of the project:

  2. Is the project based on a real local need and suggested by the local community?

  3. Is the project ongoing and long lasting?

  4. Is the project funded and/or constructed jointly with local people? (this type of engagement allows for a transfer of skills, ensures longevity and encourages the community to ‘own’ the project)
