Cultural Immersion Program (3 Weeks)

Cultural Immersion Program (3 Weeks)

Gap Year cultural immersion experiences allow participants to garner the best of experiential learning through hands on experiences in close interaction with the local communities.

Program Overview

The excitement of travelling to a foreign land makes us scroll through all the sites and leave no YouTube videos unwatched. But on actually visiting the land, we would discover that the information any site provided was neither complete nor adequate. There are often so much that is left unexplored. So, cultural immersion is a must to get most out of your travel experiences and live beyond the stereotypical ideas. 

GAP Year Cultural Immersion Program is designed to live the moments like locals. If you want to live the Nepalese way of life escaping from your routine lifestyle, just ring the bell and before that, go through our itinerary to know better about the program. Here’s what you will be involved in on a three-week-long cultural immersion program.

Personal GrowthThe big earthquake of 2015 was a very interesting time for all. On one hand, we saw a lot of devastation, on the other- a happy nation that is always smiling, regardless of the situation. I’ve been with the family of GapYearNepal for 3 projects, rebuilding schools, restoring hope in the hearts of locals and inspiring individuals. GapYearNepal you’re the best!

I took 2 weeks of Nepal Education Trip, which was a mix between holidays and community programs I had been a fantastic experience, which I enjoyed a lot. Nepal is a great country to do amazing activities same time learning a new culture. I had little difficulties to communicate in the school and the family due to the language barrier. But in general my experience was wonderful and I recommended it to everybody. Thank you, GAP Year Nepal team
