Med Trek...

International physicians, dentists, nurses, health workers and volunteers can participate in our medical & dental treks. You do not need to be a healthcare worker to participate! Non-medical volunteers are also needed to accompany treks as they make valuable contributions assisting in numerous capacities.  All who seek a rewarding experience providing vital healthcare to remote areas are welcome and encouraged to come.

Med trek is a unique way to take in the beauty of Nepal, participate in the daily life of Nepalese, immerse oneself in indigenous culture, and help people who otherwise go without healthcare.

Starting from Kathmandu, treks usually take about two weeks. During this 2-week period, two health camps are established in two separate villages and each lasting two days. It typically takes three days of trekking to reach the first village. Over the course of two days, with help from KTF staff and local volunteers, we will treat not only the residents of the village, but also from the surrounding communities.  It is not uncommon for people to travel by foot for several days in order to be treated at a health camp.  At the conclusion of the first camp, we will trek over another few days to the second village, and set up there.

From time to time, Karma Thalo in collaboration with Encounter Karma Treks ( also organize special treks focusing on particular medical needs. This primarily includes dental and ophthalmology treatment, but specialists in other areas are welcome!

For more information on upcoming treks, please view our Next Trip section. 

We look forward to seeing you in Nepal soon!  Namaste!
