Are you looking for an immersive experience in a foreign country? This is the program for you! From helping farmers and ranchers in rural communities to attending festivals in the city, the Cultural Immersion program is the perfect opportunity to see what it’s like to be a native Nepalese for two weeks.
During the first few days, we will focus on getting adjusted to your new home in Nepal. We will have team-building activities to get to know you and your teammates better, and we’ll tour the local sightseeing areas together! Did we mention tasty traditional Nepalese foods?
We will meet the residents of rural communities. There, you and your teammates will help farmers and ranchers complete daily tasks and experience the Nepalese way of doing things, such as milking cows, visiting monasteries and temples, and feeling the food with your hands!
Skills gained: Cultural awareness, adaptation, team building, group dynamics
In the second week, we will transition to a more urban area. Here, we will attend a Nepalese festival, which is a huge part of their culture! Depending on what the group would like, we can also volunteer at local NGOs, go on sightseeing tours, or attend a Hindu-Buddhist service. On the final day, we will hold a farewell party to reflect on the cultural similarities and differences among ourselves and Nepal and how we can apply what we have learned to our own development.
Skills gained: Global perspective, cooperation, volunteerism, reflection

“Deciding to leave home was the scary thing and actually doing it was the scariest but you need to do things in life that scare you, and I was so lucky to have Stepabroad along the way if I ever needed something! (And believe me, I did lol) there is so much to see in this crazy beautiful world and I’m happy to say I’m lost in the right direction!”

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
Have had such a great experience from Gap Year Nepal. I feel like so much has been accomplished in my short time here. The people I have met and all the permanent Gap Year Nepal staff are truly good people at heart, and have looked after me every moment. Really sad that I have to leave and wish I discovered these guys when I first came to Nepal, so I could have spend more time. Thank you Gap Year Nepal, You guys are dope!
