Through the relationships of Abraham, Swamp India Camp Director, the church in Kathmandu, Nepal heard about camp. In October of 2019, Abraham and Jeff took a trip there to check out various camp locations and meet with the church to inform them of camp and of Swamp Corps. From this point, it was decided that Anu and Gulshan Dangol would be the camp directors. Plans are being made for Anu and Gulshan to travel to India in May of 2021 for training and then a Swamp Corps trip is planned for October 2021 for the first-ever Swamp camp in Nepal.

Nepal, officially the Federal Democratic Republic of Nepal, is a sovereign country in South Asia. It is mainly in the Himalayas, but also includes parts of the Indo-Gangetic Plain. It is the 49th largest country by population and 93rd largest country by area. People from many countries travel to Nepal for the mountain treks and natural beauty.

We are excited to announce this trip and hope to have the most international training team yet to date. Join us today for an exciting time. (HINT: the camp site is in the mountains with a clear view of the Himalayans and even Mt. Everest on the clearest of days. The top left picture is a view from a lunch spot. Wahoo!)

Trip Information

Fees & Deadlines:

TBA

Key Information:

  • Do I Need a Visa?
    Tourist Visas are obtained at the airport upon arrival with a valid Passport showing 6 months of validity and $25US in cash.
  • Are Vaccinations Needed?
    Check the following two sources: Passport Health or CDC Health Information for Travelers to Nepal.

    Find the nearest Travel Clinic to you. They can advise you on the vaccinations needed and the fees associated with each one.

    Recommendations and Notes from consultation with UGA Travel Clinic:
    • Must have MMR: verify up-to-date; can request MMR Titer if not sure
    • Recommended Medicines / Vaccinations:
      • Malaria: get 23 day prescription of malarone: easier on stomach and less pills to take.
      • Typhoid: shot lasts 2 years, pills last 5 years
      • Cholera: get zithromax as your diarrhea antibiotic to bring with you
    • Optional Vaccinations - Your Call:
      • Yellow Fever - one shot lasts a lifetime.
      • Japanese Encaphalitis: not likely but it can be present because of high mosquito population. Medicine is costly (approx $700 for two shots); comes in two doses and must be taken 28 days apart. We will have mosquito repellent with us.

    Buy generous supply of Ultrathon that is listed on the Stuff to Bring list. It is pricey but affective; same as used by military.
