Hans Kammerlander visited Nepal once again after quite a long break. He showed much interest and spent much time visiting three different institutions in Lhubu: Shaligram Bal Griha, our farming land and Shree Setidevi Higher Secondary School, which he himself founded in 2004 and which is one of three schools named after him.

He was very relieved to see these three institutions in a relative good condition after the earth quakes last year. All of these were only slightly damaged and the necessary extensions of the school building could be continued. However, it was not satisfying that the water supplies at school were still not working properly and therefore the hygiene at the sanitary facilities was suffering. Kammerlander showed himself immensely impressed on his tour through the farming land, seeing the biogas plant and the results of agricultural growing a diverse variety of plants. This shows the high motivation and commitment the farming staff invests working exemplary. The children and leading staff welcomed the guest heartily and showed their enourmous gratitude.

Hans Kammerlander was welcomed and accompanied by Sunil Krishna Shrestha, the Country Director of NHB, who took much time to show the visitors around.

The famous mountaineer came together with a group of trekking tourists who had rounded Manaslu (8,163 m) and passed the Larkya-La-Pass (5,220 m) the previous two weeks. All group members were deeply impressed of the commitment of the NHB and of the friendliness and lust for life of the people in Nepal.
