A group of 14 students and 4 teachers from Cheadle Hulme School, UK are currently on a visit to Nepal. At the time of writing this blog, the group is taking the trail to Ghandruk a picturesque traditional Gurung village. After their sightseeing trip in Kathmandu and Pokhara, the group commenced their trekking. From Ghandruk they shall proceed to Tadapani, and from there to Ghorepani, Poon Hill, Hille and Naya Pool.
After their trekking adventure, the group shall cool down by rafting down the Trishuli river. More adventure and excitement awaits them in the deep jungles of Chitwan – jungle safari in Chitwan National Park, with elephant rides, canoeing, educational slide shows on rhinos and elephants and cultural programs thrown in.
The group shall be driven to Nuwakot a small village, 75kms North West of Kathmandu. Explore Himalaya runs many community service programs and voluntary projects in this ancient but impoverished village. While in Nuwakot, the Cheadle Hulme school group shall get the opportunity to visit a real Nepali school, to interact with the students and get an insight of how their Nepalese peers learn in Nepal. Overall, an insightful tour for the young learners and their teachers from the distant British shores.
The group had initially planned to visit Tibet but due to disturbances in the highland they had to cancel their trip. But we are sure, Nepal won’t disappoint them. Mystical, magical Nepal shall work her charm; she has for ages and she will in times for come…mesmerize visitors.
