Amazing Learning Experience

This experience was the best I could imagine. I learned more than I thought possible, while being supported by the best group of Nepali interns. Ram and Xenia are very intelligent and will help you every step of the way. They are easy to talk to and very informative. The raft guides, the Nepali interns, are also extremely sweet and will help and support you. They are also very keen to teach you the Nepali language! I love this camp and the people working here. Furthermore, I was pleasantly surprised that your internship/volunteer experience can be adjusted to your needs. There is experience with sustainability promotion, with rafting, with running a camp and being a host, everything. This was truly the most amazing experience of my life and I highly highly recommend it! I can’t wait to come back myself!

What would you improve about this program?
Upon asking, I received all the information I wanted. But maybe I could’ve received more specific details about what was expected of me before I asked. Besides this, I can’t think of anything; the experience was amazing!
