Nepal - SChool Leavers'
2 – 22 December 2019
Anyone for Schoolies in the Himalayas?
Our December Nepal immersion, designed and delivered for School Leavers is the perfect opportunity to step away from the hustle, bustle and craziness of post-school life and into a world of beauty, peace and clarity beyond anything you could imagine.
The Nepal immersion throws you straight into the action as you serve with Mother Teresa’s Missionaries of Charity in Kathmandu. After a couple of days, we begin our trek.
Our 4-day trek takes us through Langtang National Park to the Ruby Valley, right on the border of Nepal and Tibet. The trek is a time for you to slow down, have a think and develop strong relationships with the group. There will be times for talking, and times for silence, times to laugh and play, and times to enjoy the stillness and tranquility of the stunning Himalayan landscape.
Our trek will eventually bring us to the village of Tipling. This incredibly isolated, but incredibly rich community is chiselled out of the hillside looking out towards the stunning Ganesh Himal (Elevation: 7422m). Our time in Tipling revolves around developing relationships with the community by teaching and relieving some of the damage that remains from the Nepal Earthquake in 2015.
Once we finish our time in Tipling, we will take a shorter route back to Kathmandu for some well-deserved R&R before our return to Sydney.
