Minimum commitment:

If you are passionate, open to learn and have a sense of adventure, interning with us might just be the thing for you! We’re looking for a minimum 1 month commitment (excluding travel time) in Spiti. It would be great if you can come for longer. In our experience, it takes a few days to settle in and acclimatize to the altitude before you can meaningfully begin interning.

Accommodation & Meals:

Your stay and meals will be in Kaza with us. You will be sharing a room (with 2 to 3 volunteers) with an attached toilet.

Please note:

  • You are expected to have a good level of commitment while interning with Ecosphere. 
  • Inters are treated as team members and not as clients. So if you expect otherwise or have any concerns do let us know beforehand or speak with the Ecosphere management team immediately. If it is within our means we will do our best to address your concern. If we feel that you do not fit, you will be requested to leave. 
  • If you’re keen to travel around Spiti, please keep a few extra days before or after your volunteering period.
  • Being a social enterprise with a limited financial outlay we are unable to support your accommodation and meals. To cover the cost of your stay and food a nominal amount is charged. 

Thank you for your interest in volunteering with Ecosphere


    Please note: minimum volunteering period is 15 days
