Always Namaste

Overall 10

Yes, you're right, I have a lot of stories from Nepal, and I think I have shared all of them, so it's hard to choose.

Overall, I especially remark my superlovely rice killers family, my new friends in Pokhara and Chitwan, my visits to the GapNepal office in Kathmandu, the incredible views of Himalayas and Everest, the dirtyness of Kathmandu, the beauty of Pashupatinah, the festival in Bakthapur.

And of course, the local people there: teachers, friends, tourist guides and the amazing children of Nabin English School.

A life experience!

Mind-blowing experience

Overall 10

I have learned so much in those few weeks that I don't even know where to start! The kindness of local people, the culture, the food and all the daily travels and weekly adventure.
Wow! I have spent time in local villages. Climbed steep mountain, watched the most amazing views ever...
I have gained so many life skills while on a program. If you want to learn how to become independent and have lots of fun this is it!

You have to come and experience for yourself!

How can this program be improved?

I guess things could be done more western way sometimes, but learning how people think and how the get things done is great too!

Amazing trip

Overall 10

My trip to Nepal was amazing thanks to this program, Anish was extremely helpful, knowledgable and I felt safe at all times. The group was fun, like minded and I made some long life friends.
Nepal is definitely a trip I will never forget. Loved every single moment. The traditions, food and culture are also a wonderful experience.
The accomodation was also lovely and clean.
