Teams can spend time exploring Kathmandu, Nepal’s capital city which is bursting with history and culture. Wander through the city’s old streets, and marvel at the exquisite architecture of the ancient temples. The fresh food market stalls are worth a visit as Nepalese cuisine is aromatic and flavoursome, with their dishes taking inspiration from Indian and Tibetan styles of cooking.
Famous for its mountains, there are many iconic trekking options in Nepal. Treks in the Annapurna region allow teams to take on a physical and rewarding challenge, whilst witnessing the breath-taking views of the Himalayas, and experiencing the local way of life for the rural Nepalese communities. Lower level treks offer further insight for those interested in Nepal’s fascinating culture, as you will trek off the beaten track and experience the less visited areas.
In a remote community the team can work alongside our charity partner, The Pahar Trust, to provide support to those who were affected by the 2015 earthquake. Students will gain a better understanding of the challenges the locals face and help on construction projects including homes, community buildings and schools. Living and helping in the community is an invaluable experience that will immerse the team further into Nepalese life.
Teams can experience Nepal’s cultural history by visiting the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Bhaktapur, the third largest city in the Kathmandu region. Wander the beautifully preserved palace courtyards that date back to the 12th Century and explore the exquisite pagoda style temples. You can also discover the historical wonders of Kathmandu through a visit to Durbar Square, the place where the city’s kings were once crowned and from where they ruled.
Mountainous regions at high altitude, along with plains and forest mean that there are a variety of trekking options. It is ideal for those who are looking for a physical challenge.
The dry season runs from October to May, with the Autumn months a great time to travel as you will experience this incredible country whilst daytime temperatures are warm and skies are clear.
