Gap Year in Nepal

Nestled between India and Tibet, Nepal is a dramatic choice for your gap year. With eight of the world’s highest mountains (including Everest) and breathtaking natural diversity, Nepal is crammed with picture-postcard views and stunning vistas. Famous for mountain-climbing and natural wonders rather than commercial tourist attractions, this beautiful country has yet to be spoiled by an influx of package-holidayers. There’s a saying among travellers to Nepal, which has now been adapted by the tourist board: “Once is not enough.” So perhaps this article should open with a warning: spend your gap year here, and you’d better prepare for a lifelong love affair with this spectacular country.
