Student Tour Packages

In our mind it's important for students to have some time where they are being encouraged to develop their own interests and to use their imagination. We have arranged some simple activities and outings that cover culture, wildlife, environment, trekking, sightseeing, language, dancing and singing all of which forms an educational trip suitable for any one. We can organize this trip through a school, university, sporting or church club. A trip that will be enjoyed by one and all.

Participants receive an excellent opportunity to learn about all aspects of the Nepali culture, wildlife, hiking, lifestyle, language, food and people. This is a cultural effort and to exchange some knowledge of their own home culture and customs.

During their stay, participants will attend an hour of language lessons with an experienced Nepali language teacher and cultural trainer throughout each day, each participant is required to keep a daily diary. Nepali culture is distinctively friendly and open and participants are made to feel as though they are part of the family.

During the course of this trip, you will be guided and travel by deluxe air-conditioned coach. Most of the hotel accommodation during the city tour is three to four star and of a basic standard while in trekking. All meals (Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner) provided for entire trip.
