Kathmandu Environmental Education Project

Information in Kathmandu

This worthy and useful organisation is useful for trekkers, with a small library, some useful trekkers' notebooks, a water refill service and a good noticeboard if you are looking for a trek partner. It shifts location more frequently than a Tibetan nomad, so check before heading out.

It’s a good place to donate clothes or to rent a set of clothes for your porter from the Porter’s Clothing Bank (Rs 500 fee, with a Rs 2000 to Rs 5000 deposit). It also sells iodine tablets (Rs 1000), biodegradable soap and other environmentally friendly equipment and there's a good-value cafe. It can also arrange Nepali language lessons and volunteer opportunities.
