Moving Mountains Nepal
Moving Mountains Nepal is a registered NGO based in Kathmandu which is the operational centre for all of our projects in Nepal. Adventure Alternative funds the logistical and administration costs for Moving Mountains Nepal. Additionally MM Nepal provides long term career opportunities and works in a specific mountain environment in the solu Khumbu where it builds hydro-electric power facilities, schools, monasteries and clinics.
MM Nepal provides capital investment for business and social enterprise, and Adventure Alternative then provides access to revenue streams by bringing previously remote areas to market and enabling villages to benefit from tourist income. This business model has proved very successful and been the catalyst for several local social enterprises which have since become self-sufficient.
