A trekker’s paradise, Nepal combines Himalayan vistas, golden temples, charming villages and exotic wildlife to offer one of the world's greatest travel destinations. With its ancient culture and the Himalayas as a backdrop, landlocked Nepal was closed to the outside world until the 1950s. Flanked by China and India, it is home to eight of the world's highest mountains, including Mount Everest towering above populated valleys and forested plains. Somewhere in the Kapilavastu district, there is a place called Lumbini; birthplace to Siddhartha Gautama, more widely known as Buddha. And legend has it that the Yeti (Abominable Snowman) lives deep in the mountains. Nepal is an inspiring destination that fuses natural beauty, spirituality and adventure.
Over the last 12 years, we have developed extensive travel programs that educate and empower students. Nepal faces many challenges as a country, including ongoing restoration after a devastating earthquake in April 2015 killed thousands of people, flattened villages and reduced numerous heritage sites to ruin. Community service is a core focus of our operations and our students support education projects, drinking water projects, charities, earthquake relief rebuilding, aged care facilities, environmental conservation projects, and NGOs that fight human trafficking. Programs range in length from 5-30 days and typically combine service projects with adventure activities such as trekking in Himalayas, white water rafting, ziplining, camping, bungee jumping, paragliding and visits to cultural and historic sites of Kathmandu.
Our local team has a wealth of experience managing student travel programs across Nepal, achieving consistently high net promoter scores for our clients.
