Nepal is a perfect destination for school teams. It’s unique people and geography allow you to combine trekking, volunteering and adventure, in one fantastic and safe location. A high school trip to Nepal is a rich cultural experience that will stay with your team, for a lifetime. Take on Nepal have been proudly co-ordinating and hosting volunteering and trekking trips to Nepal since 2012. We have extensive experience at handling every aspect of large (and small) groups, visiting Nepal. We can assist with everything from accommodation, transfers and meals, to guided trekking and village volunteering. Our head base is in Cairns, Australia and we have teams here and in Nepal. Some of the adventures we can include in your high school trip to Nepal include, but are not limited to: trekking through the Himalayan Mountains, looking for rhinos and other wildlife at Chitwan, or visiting the World Peace Pagoda at Lake Phewa. How about volunteering at a village school; painting, building or teaching, while living alongside the villagers. The people of Nepal are incredibly friendly. The mountain people are Buddhist and the surroundings are second to none. For more information, contact Susan or Som at Take on Nepal today.
Choosing Nepal as your destination offers students the opportunity to encounter an alternative culture and mind broadening experiences, that can last a lifetime. It’s a safe destination and offers a wealth of activities, catering to students of all ages and abilities. From mountain trekking, to village volunteering, Buddhist temples and remote rural villages in the Himalayas, Nepal offers all this and so much more.
Our team have worked for many years designing tailor-made tours for universities, school groups and individuals. Our knowledge and experience allows us to put together the best itinerary for your group, so you can make the most of your time in Nepal. Our high school trips to Nepal are designed to encourage team building, leadership and great learning for the students. We can also support students who are interested in returning for volunteering in their Gap.
The Take on Nepal team will deal directly with parents, when it comes to all matters of the expedition. Parents will receive regular newsletters and emails, updating them on the project and expedition progress. Parents will be welcomed to join the pre-departure orientation workshops and will also be provided with a copy of the Risk Assessment. We’re professional and safety is paramount on all our trips, as is peace of mind.
We understand the demands of teaching. We’ll ensure you don’t have to undertake any logistical or administrative work. We take care of it all. During the expedition, you’ll be assigned the role of Team Leader and will work closely alongside our team both here and in Nepal. We provide you with the necessary training, cover all your costs in Nepal and provide you with first aid training. Watch your students grow during their time in Nepal.
I’m not sure how you can really describe such an incredible experience like this – but I’ll do my best… Being in Batase Village has been like finally being able to see the world with clear vision. Back home, we act and look and think about things in a certain way – but here in Batase, the slate has been wiped clean. What’s left are simply genuine, kind hearted men and women with a vision that empowers young people to gain an education, and leave the world better then they found it. My experience has been teaching and playing with children, relaxing in one of the most raw and scenic places I will ever hope to see, as well as enjoying good food, and even better company. All the while, knowing that my experience here raises both the funds and the awareness to encourage young girls and boys to break free of social and cultural chains, and achieve knew heights of equality and education. Regardless of age or ability, if you are someone who yearns for new adventures and enough inspiration to last a lifetime, please, follow in our footsteps and Take On Nepal.

I couldn’t recommend Take on Nepal highly enough to anyone looking for an unforgettable and life changing volunteering experience. The people of Batase and the take on Nepal guides were all amazing, kind-hearted people, full of happiness despite the struggles they face. It was a humbling experience teaching the kids, who were all eager to learn as much as they could from us. Even though we were only there a short time, it was an honour to make a small difference in the lives of those living in Batase. I can’t wait to come back and visit again!
