Gap Year in Asia

Asia is the largest and most populated continent in the world, containing more than 60% of the world's people (depending on whether you include the European bit or not). It has the world’s highest mountain (Everest 29,035 ft), the worlds lowest point (Dead Sea) and the world’s deepest lake. Lake Baikal contains 90% of Russia's liquid fresh surface water (at nearly two and a half thousand feet deep)! This massive and varied landscape facilitates an equally huge range of gap year options, notably in sports and outdoor action. The legendary dive sites throughout South East Asia, and the most demanding mountain ranges in the world offer unique life experience gap years.
