What people are saying about our adventures
My experience with Five14 was an amazing one. I'll never forget the natural beauty I was able to enjoy on my trip to Ghyangphedi as well as my host family's generosity. Five14 is doing incredible work for Nepal, and it was an honor to see and be a part of it. I would highly recommend it to anyone!
It was wonderful. I loved the region, the hiking, and the people - both those who welcomed us into their home and our guides.
My experience with Five14 was amazing and life-changing. I saw and experienced things I will never forget in the most beautiful country I have ever visited. I would absolutely recommend a visit to Nepal, especially through Five14 so that you would be able to experience so much more and really see the heart of this beautiful county.
