We're Going To India and Nepal!
India… It’s like no other, unique by its architectural wonders, history, bustling bazaars, and spiritual traditions. All of this makes it the perfect addition to our tried and tested Nepal Program. Arriving here after peaceful Nepal feels like a blasting force of sounds, smells and colors, but in the best way possible. So without further ado, we present to you the new India & Nepal Program! It's the perfect combination of culture, nature and adventure in a variety of landscapes, from the Himalayan mountains to the Arabian Sea.
What's New in India?
- See the sunrise at the Taj Mahal. Get up early to see the sun rise over this famous UNESCO world heritage site, also known to be one of the wonders of the world!
- Surf's Up! You will learn how to surf with a local surf club that uses surf to engage disadvantaged youth of the area. Ready to ride some waves on the Arabian Sea?
- A double doses of cultural workshops! Become pros of the Indian curry during a cooking workshop, and learn to dance like the Indian Bollywood stars!
- Care for sloth bears at a rescue center. Volunteer at the largest sloth bear rescue facility in the world! You will build hammocks, prep food and assist the keeper.
- Cruise on Kerala's Backwaters. Spot wildlife, see the traditional fishing nets and lives of the communities pass by, and spend the night on a traditional shikkar boat.
The Highlights in Nepal That We're Keeping
- Homestays are of course staying! Our students live under the roof of a local family while doing volunteer work in a small village at the foothills of the Himalayas.
- Safaris in Royal Chitwan National Park. Crocodiles, elephants, cheetahs, Bengal tigers, and rhinos all inhabit this area, so you will have to keep your eyes open!
- Reflect during a yoga and meditation retreat. The Himalayan range is the perfect backdrop for yoga sessions, breath work, chanting, and meditations.
- Trekking through the Himalayas. Over the course of ten days, you will hike through the Himalayan mountains on a village-to-village trek to the Annapurna Base Camp.
