Want to learn more about hiking the Hymalayas without going there OR to NYC for our June 2 REI speaker session?
Now, due to popular demand, we have added a second session and located this one here in Central NJ at the Plainfield Public Libarary on Weds. June 1. Both June 1 & 2 sessions are FREE.
This is our third speaker session which will take place in the large lecture room in the main public library. Hear Sydney Frymire talk about the trips she organizes to Nepal for both the adventure and good works.
Imagine walking in the extreme foothills in Nepal along native village paths, with breathtaking views of the tallest mountains in the world, and the opportunity to experience an exotic culture, and meet native villagers and monks. Our presenter will discuss what the country, culture, and people are like in this unique area, and share what these adventure volunteerism tours include: professional guides, accommodations, food, and knowledgeable staff.
It's not a climbing expedition; it's a moderate "trekking" adventure across some of the most spectacularly beautiful places in the world. Rated as a moderate trek for people in good shape. The tour leader has been taking small volunteer groups to Nepal since 2011 and is involved in several humanitarian projects there, some of which you may experience during the tour.
The FreeWalkers partner with Sydney on promoting these walks. See details on two events scheduled for October 2016.
