My Nepali experienceFrom the moment I sat my feet in Nepal the cultural shock (not shock in negative way) began and it kept on going. whether was walking in the streets of Kathmandu and seeing a man with 20 dead chicken on his bicycle or driving in a tourist bus a little bit scared, it is culture and it is awesome. However there are naturally things about other cultural from your own which you don’t understand. here I am thinking about the act of hitting children being forced in to a marriage and follow rules nobody knows why exists have though taken it all as an experience and the best thing was always to see the people smile I really liked that. Nepal has made me feel alive in so many different ways whether it was walking in the street looking out the window driving in the bus or jumping out from a bridge everybody has been so nice and helpful staff guides that’s for that I couldn’t have asked for better Nepal experience.
Personal limitsI think the programme is very good because it helped me test and move some of my personal limits especially through trekking and bungy jump. I like the very social aspect of the group but I do not see our contribution to the local community unless we choose to do volunteering work.
Cultural ExperienceI had 4 really good weeks as everyone from Nepal was really warm and fun people who are good at English and socializing with us.(the group).it was cool that the program was very booked so that we benefited as much from the experience as possible. Especially santosh and Anish was very good guides and very helpful I felts safe the whole time. It was very interesting to see so many different parts of Nepal all in all a very rewarding experiences.
Amazing culture, much busI think my journey has been mostly amazing beautiful giving and hilarious. Tibet was the most cultural part of the trip but also the part with most waste time in bus that was a shame but I think necessary the time in Nepal has been great. Packed with experiences and adventures. But it might have been nice with little free time in Bhaktapur and Kathmandu.
Nepal, Tibet and Bhutan Trip - 3 Months GAP Year Program - I don’t even know where to start when it comes to waiting down a review about the last three months here in Nepal. During this long but somehow also really short time filed. period of time I was able to explore Nepal in every kind of way I could even think about we could experience some action with the river rafting and Bungy jump we could enjoy the beautiful nature on the trekking tour. we could get to know the culture by visiting temples and other important cultural sites and least we could get in touch with the local people which leads me to have a big family and a lot of friends here in Nepal now.
Great AwesomeI was really happy with my trip in general. The adventure was incredible and I will never forget it. River rifting was a bit less for since it was a very gentle trip. Whenever I got sick the staff was really helpful. At the orphanage it would be nice if it was possible to help out the school since it is otherwise some really long days. If possible one more day in last resort not so much driving in Tibet we spend a lot of time in the bus.
I really liked to be a teacher in the governmental school; therefore I would have appreciated if we had talked to about our expectations to the volunteering work if we had talked about that I would have been there from the beginning. Overall I will praise you for your support. It has been more than expected.
Amazing NepalThis trip has been such a good experience and I have just loved almost every moments here I think the programme is very well planned and was a good mix of adventure sightseeing trekking and voluntary work’s like that we start with sightseeing and learn about the nepali culture before the voluntary and local family. Especially I would really thank you guide for always being there and being ready to help us with whatever we need.
Another part of the worldNepal is a country that’s lets you try all the things you don’t have at home. The variety of nature is so vast with everything from animal life like that of Africa and with wasteland surrounded by cloud punk turning mountains.But the nature is net all. Nepal us a developing country with big D,and really live with only 12h of power a day or sometimes without water for a shower really opens your eyes to how luckily we are in the western part of the world . Nepali people are said to be some of the richest people in the world and they are everywhere you go. People are willing to help or just go for a chat and as part of the volunteering work you really meet this volunteering nature. On top of this to live with the locals also means daal Bhat morning and evening.In the program you will meet more than just the culture. in Bhutan you got to see one of the worlds must extraordinary building tigers nest at monastery 900mto see all the beauty up a diffside.in the Tibet you get the chance to see all the beauty of the Buddhists culture. And with a bus ride either in or out of the country you will see even more of the amazing Himalayan Mountains to sum up this tour. it has changed the way I see life this tour have been a life changer.
Great trip with many impressions and life changing storiesIn Annapurna we saw how the local people lived and we just couldn’t believe the conditions .it really opened your eyes for how some people in some countries live. Tibet was also special to see how china controlled Tibet.
