The raw emotion of our Nepal Adventure is overwhelming – every time we bring a stove to a family and fire it up, it INSTANTLY changes their lives – to see it and feel it – it brings us (and them) to tears, and confirms, one-on-one, one stove at a time, how we’re transforming lives in the High Himalayas.
What started as a vision not very long ago (October 2010 when the first 48 stoves were sent to “test”) is now very, very real for hundreds of families, monks and nuns throughout Nepal, from the border with India (Sikkim) on the east to the high desert of Upper Mustang at the border with Tibet, as we distribute our first full container-load of stoves throughout the region.
Here’s a short video update / report on the Himalayan Stove Project from our Nepal adventure, which is just wrapping up.
There’ll be lots more to share as we sort through our video, but we wanted to share this with you now.

The Himalayan Stove Projects mission is to transform people’s lives one clean cookstove at a time. As you’ll see our trek to deliver the first stoves to a family high in the remote village near Tengboche was difficult- yet totally worth it.
The Himalayan Stove Project is a humanitarian organization working with local people throughout Nepal. We are volunteers who pay our own expenses and the project is funded by generous corporations and individuals worldwide.
George Basch is the creator and ‘Chief Cook’.
