KATHMANDU CLUBHOUSE BETA
• Cost includes breakfast, dinner, wi-fi, and airport pickup
• Mountain Fund connects climbers with volunteer opportunities in Nepal
The AAC, working with the Mountain Fund, has a great loding option for its Members—an AAC Member Clubhouse in central Kathmandu, Nepal. The cost to members is just $15 per day and includes breakfast, dinner, wi-fi and airport pickup. If members wish to volunteer in Nepal, fees can be waived for placement, in lieu of a $100 or more donation to the volunteer project they are tasked with.
The clubhouse has five bedrooms (three or four beds to a room), three bathrooms, and lots of exterior room for sorting gear or washing tents. It's right next door to the Bhat Bateni supermarket and only a 10-minute walk from the U.S. Embassy. The address is 539 Milijuli Tole, Maharajgunj, Kathmandu and the phone is 977-9841060257
Additional Services: If members need to speak with someone in Nepal to arrange permits, porters, or other logistical matters, Clubhouse or Mountain Fund staff can assist both in-country or before departure. Stateside staff in New Mexico are fluent in both English and Nepali and can Skype-conference for real time translation if needed to help with expedition plans, or assist with email translation. Once in Nepal, Clubhouse staff will assist with porters, VISA requirements, and more.
Your membership supports the Kathmandu Clubhouse as well as a whole host of other great things.
Only AAC members get $10,000 in Global Rescue Insurance and Services, Exclusive Deals on Insurance, guidebooks mailed to you—free—from the extensive AAC Library, and the rest of the great AAC Member Benefits.
