I made the volunteer project in Himachal, and I have to say that it was a breathtaking experience. I learned much of a new, completely different culture. In the projects you get so much love and gratitude from the kids back. It was a really important experience for me to work with them and see how they live in other countries.
In the Idex house you feel like in a family, with the wonderful people, who are everyday around, who care for you and become friends.
Of course the nature is also incredible beautiful, you have the himalaya direct in front of your window, it's so beautiful to see this giant mountain at first when you get up. Next to the Idex house is a beautiful river with so much nature around, where many monkeys live. and if you want to go to take a walk to the market, you will walk all the time along the wonderful tea gardens.
Also the projects you can do in the Himachal camp are great, you have the opportunity to visit other city's with great attractions. For example you make many trips to old temples or do paragliding from the himalaya.
I will never forget this great time of my life.
