This week-long adventure begins in Nepal’s capital city of Kathmandu. You will spend two days in this fascinating city where you will visit UNESCO World Heritage Sites, get to know our team and your fellow participants, and learn from local changemakers.
The next morning will be spent traveling to Damauli, the starting point of the short trek to Aashpawara Village where we will be warmly welcomed by the villagers with hot tea, gentle smiles, and traditional songs.
Living with your host family in the village will allow you to experience their day-to-day life, learn various traditional skills, and try their home-cooked dishes. It will also enable you to understand the issues they face as part of the Dalit community.
After spending a few days in the village, we will make our way to Australian Camp in Dhampus. A half-day trek will reward you with a breathtaking view of the Annapurna Himalayan Range. We will be spending the night in a charming teahouse on top of a hill.
Before returning to Kathmandu, you will have the chance to relax and spend a night in Nepal’s serene lakeside city of Pokhara and spend a day visiting beautiful sites like Fewa Lake and World Peace Pagoda. The educational tour will culminate with a dinner at Boudhanath, a UNESCO World Heritage Site in Kathmandu and Asia’s largest Stupa.
A reservation fee of USD 50 must be paid online through PayPal.
This trip is jointly organized by Hand-On Institute and Asian Education Network.
