Fresh out of high school, Kirsten Bjørge and Taliah Sheffer from Norway are here in Nepal on a GAP year break. As they want to spend their holidays doing something productive, these two young ladies have signed up for Explore Himalaya’s GAP Year & volunteering program in Nuwakot. They left for Nuwakot village today. During their month long stay they will assist teachers at the village school (Shree Bhairabi Higher Secondary School), aid health post workers, get involved in community service and try their hands at farming (the traditional way!). Kirsten & Taliah will be staying with local families.

Dolpo requires some extra logsistics and Pemba made all necessary arrangements. We also benefited. Both treks were wonderful! from having a local guide- Baba –in Mustang- as this is more of a cultural trek-his personal knowledge was useful.
We work with the motto "Tourism for Development". Explore Himalaya Community Service Project was conceived to empower underprivileged segments of Nepal.
