Nepal is an exciting travel destination for all categories of travelers.

With years of trekking experience, staff in Skyway Nepal Treks strives to provide quality of
services and memorable experience. We are passionate about showing you the rich cultural
heritage and natural wonders in Nepal. No matter whether you enjoy cultural and historical
tours or prefer being challenged by nature, no matter whether you travel alone or with a

Not only do we treat our guides and porters with compassion, we also believe in giving back
to the society. Skyway Nepal Treks donates part of its profit to Project iBelieve, a charity
project that provides financial support to Nepali children with their education. By travelling
with us, you will give these children a better life.

Your next travel destination is Nepal. We will take you to experience heaven!

Supporting Project iBelieve
Despite the rich cultural and natural heritage, Nepal is one of the poorest countries in the
world. Many Nepali struggle to get enough food and stay sheltered. Education rate is very
low. People with little education can only work in the field or as a laborer. On every trekking
route in Nepal, you can see porters carrying heavy loads. They work hard, yet what they

make is barely enough to support their families. In many cases, their children have to drop
out from school and work as laborers too to support their families. Without education, they
cannot find a decent job.
Life is hard, especially for people who live in the remote mountain areas. Generation by
generation, they live a hard life with little hope to change. The only way to break this vicious
cycle is education.

Born in the remote areas and having worked as a porter before, both Bal Darnal and Binod
Osti (the two co-founders of Skyway Nepel Treks) understand education is important to
Children. They believe with education children will have a better life in the future.
Through Project iBelieve, they are committed to helping Nepali children in remote areas gain
better access to education. Part of Skyway Nepal Treks’ profit will be donated to Project
iBelieve and used on Children’s stationery, clothing, lunch programs, sport equipment, etc.
Bal Darnal also volunteers for Project iBelieve as a Program Manager. He oversees the
project operations in Nepal, coordinates with supported schools and students, and liaisons
with the project head office in Canada.
