Truly Transformative Experience

Overall 10

I came to Nepal through the global volunteer network when I was 18, just out of high school & right after the second cease fire had ended in 2003. The first place I went to after the volunteer training outside of kathmandu was to teach english in the jungle with rhinos, tigers, 500 species of birds, monkeys, etc. After that, I stayed on to do a number of other amazing adventures which included painting murals with school children, trekking to everest base camp, while diving into Nepali culture. Everyone involved in the volunteer network is truly a wonderful person, helpful, insightful & even when I wasn't volunteering I would stop in and always rely on the office for a home base. It was an incredible experience and after 8 years I still stay in touch with the people I met volunteering.
