Our trek starts with a spectacular mountain flight to Lukla , Nepal's busiest mountain airstrip at 2800m, which serves as the gateway for Everest region. From Lukla, our Everest view trek continues through the lush vegetation of Sagarmatha National Park, with pine forests, rhododendron flowers and an abundance of wildlife to Namche Bazaar . The following days trekking will bring you to the Tengboche monastery at 3860m which is one of the highlights of Everest view trek.

My time with VolNepal as a virtual intern has been extremely accommodating! The work is flexible and allows me to have some freedom when approaching projects. I mainly worked in the social media team and grant writing team this summer. Additionally, I appreciate that they provide roles that are tailored to each intern, based on our interests and skills.
My experience volunteering with Anish and its local NGO its been really great. It was my first experience in international volunteering, and I cant be happier after all, even tough I did online volunteering and couldn’t get to travel and know the country and its people as I wished initially. I hope not very late I will be able to complete my experience in person with all the team, as I feel really involved in the project already.I was really interested for a long time on getting involved on clean energy projects in developed countries through local NGOs, willing to apply my experience on the field in small projects where the social and human benefits would be bigger than the profitability and financial aspect.To be honest every time I feel more interested on this way of focusing solar energy projects and the relationship between my work and the social targets involved on it have been really boosted through the experience with Anish , and all the different lessons learnt on how to use clean energy to have a great human impact on the life conditions of people out of the sight of global investors . I think I will focus on this side of the industry more and more since I feel there is much to do on people needs through clean energy.
Thank you GAP Year Nepal, I was intern for Accessible Nepal which was a meaningful experience. I did a variety of projects for Accessible Nepal. I wrote a brochure, rewrote grants, researched grant applications for the organization, researched partnerships for Accessible Nepal, wrote blogs about the trips that are offered through Accessible Nepal. One of the most significant projects I did for Accessible Nepal was finding the 10 best accessible travel organizations in the U.S and internationally, and presenting it to the Accessible Nepal team on Google Meets. I had to mention why they were the 10 best accessible travel organizations. It was very valuable to me doing that kind of work. Intern for Accessible Nepal helped me improve writing skills and my public speaking skills. When presenting the project to the team on Google Meets, I became less nervous as time went on. I also got to learn about Nepal when doing a variety of these projects. Internship with Accessible Nepal was a great opportunity, and I’m I glad I did it.
My experience with VolNepal.Org was one of the most beautiful experiences I have had, Actually What I benefited from this experience may not be able to put into words, because it is much deeper than that, Charitable and humanitarian work usually means helping people, But what not much is known about is that we also help ourselves. But what makes the experience more effective was the transparency and our access to information and data with clarity, as well as the trust the association provided us was a strong motivation to achieve the best results. We are learning to use resources to help people and the distressed to make the world a better place for all, In fact, it is part of our responsibility as I learned from Mr.anish and Mr.shiva .. These great persons who led our virtual training with all of interest, They gave us support and assistance step by step, And provide us with everything you need to get the most benefit from virtual training. Indeed, I would like to extend all my thanks, appreciation, and gratitude for what they presented during the training.
As someone who loves volunteering in my own community, it was an amazing experience to step into an unfamiliar place and learn about their lifestyles and customs while completing this internship. All the team of GAP Year Nepal and Accessible Nepal helped me successfully complete my assignments by checking in with me twice a week and giving me feedback on the work I had completed. With their guidance, I was able to build connections and immerse myself in the Nepali culture. Within this internship, I worked on the social media posts and stories for the Accessible Nepal Instagram page. By doing this, I learned more about marketing and how to address different audiences via social media. I also have created lesson plans for the ages 7-16 on topics such as maintaining a healthy lifestyle and having good behavior. Overall, I enjoyed my experience with the Accessible Nepal team thoroughly and hope to have the opportunity to visit Nepal soon.
This summer I interned with GAP Year Nepal and worked in Himalayan Circuit, a travel company located in Nepal. This experience was unlike any other previous ones that I have held. I am an avid volunteer in my community, whether it be helping children or packaging foods. This role had me strategizing with two key players: Shiva and Anish. These two individuals led me to my success by assigning me work and checking in with me. I am grateful for this experience due to the fact that I was able to build connections with people and gain a better understanding of Nepal.Within this internship, I focused on the social media for the Instagram and Facebook pages. Other elements include correcting the English language for the travel and trekking descriptions. Some other projects included working on cover stories for raising awareness and why choosing Nepal after COVID-19. All of these projects utilized my grammatical and syntax skills. These skills allowed me to become a better writer and focus on a different type of writing. The only difficulty that I encountered was the difference in time zones, at times the calls became too late. This is not an issue with my experience and changes could be made.
We are so thankful to have met Linda and been invited to join the GapYearNepal team. It has been an absolute pleasure working with some amazing people and helping the Nepalese rebuild after the earthquake. The work you guys re doing is so great! I wish GapYearNepal all the best for the future.
Gap Year Nepal, The things I have experienced since I joined this wonderful team of people are exceptional. You give people the opportunity to rise above themselves, volunteers and locals alike, and together achieve something unparalleled. Thank you so much for making that happen. You guys and we all together rock!
Dear Gap Year Nepal Team, Thank you so much for including me and making me feel like one of the team. My time here in Nepal has been so very special. I have learned so much in the last two months about humanity, teamwork and the human spirit. I would like to thank everyone who contributed their time whether it was a week/day/month, every small action helps! I hope Nepal rebuilds its walls and restores itself to its former beauty. I will be back soon to see! What an incredible country, with such humble human beings. It was an absolute pleasure visiting your country! Keep up the amazing work Gap Year Nepal. Until we meet again, lots of love
Thank you for this beautiful opportunity and chance to give just a little bit of my energy and time to do something nice and good for others that need help in difficult time of their lives
