Cō-Impact Sourcing Trip - Nepal

Nepal is a geographically, culturally, and linguistically unique country. Because of its location directly on the collision zone of two tectonic plates, Nepal is home to many of the Himalayan Mountains, including Mt. Everest and 8 of the 10 tallest peaks in the world. It's cool, dense forests make Nepal one of the two countries that grow and harvest dōTERRA’s Wintergreen essential oil.


If you attend a Cō-Impact Sourcing Trip to Nepal you will stay in remote villages and work alongside our small-scale farmers, travel to breathtaking sites, and participate in our Cō-Impact Service Projects.

Trip Price & Inclusions

The total cost of a Nepal Cō-Impact Sourcing Trip is approximately $2,800 USD per participant.

Airfare to and from Nepal is not included in the trip price.

Pricing is based on double occupancy – meaning each participant will share a room with another attendee for the entirety of the trip. Each person selected for a CIS trip will have the option to register and pay for one (1) guest or to upgrade your stay to a single occupancy (as availability permits).

*Cō-Impact Sourcing trips do require participants to share hotel rooms.  If you choose to register a guest to travel with you, we will pair you together – following the bed preference (single or double) you note in your registration. In the event you choose to travel alone, we will pair you up in rooms with two double beds, with another trip participant of the same gender. Participants of the same gender will be required to sleep in a communal lodging space while in the village.
