Mountain Kora Partnerships
Mountain Kora has partnered with local foundations and cultural networks to ensure adventure vacations and trekking tours offer a positive contribution to the regions visited while giving back to the local communities.
US Sherpa Foundation
Mountain Kora supports the work of this foundation by providing a portion of proceeds to be used for supporting projects that improve livelihoods of the underprivileged and marginalized Nepalese residents. Most recently we have supported the Two Widows project, which has funded two female Sherpa mountaineers, widows of former Everest mountaineers, in their successful expedition up Everest and campaign to raise awareness of the plight of widows in Nepal.
Ecotourism Project Botswana
A portion of proceeds from each Mountain Kora safari goes towards the projects of Ecotourism Project Botswana. EPB works directly with the remote communities of the Kalahari to promote community-based tourism and the protection of the surrounding wilderness areas.
Participating on a Mountain Kora Bhutan adventure gives you the opportunity to engage with various programs of the Bhutan Network. This network works towards the exchange and cooperation of skills and resources in the following areas of Bhutanese society: farming and agriculture, education and vocational training, sustainable and ethical tourism, arts and traditional crafts, sports and more.
