Where There be Dragons in Nepal
DONE BY: Nina Redpath | Fieldston '17
LENGTH: 4 months
LOCATION: We did 2 homestays, one in the capital city and one in a rural village. We spent a lot of time trekking, and did a week long stay in a buddhist nunnery.
TOP TIPS: For this trip, your group definitely makes or breaks the experience. I got lucky with a wonderful group but I've heard some peoples experiences have been a lot harder. My advice would be to think carefully about continuing to travel after the program. Ultimately I am glad that I did, but when I planned to go to India after my trip, I did not take into account the possible culture shock I might feel.
