The Country

Nepal is landlocked between the Tibet Autonomous Region and India

The country has the greatest altitude variation on Earth, from the Terai lowland plains (Chitwan) at almost sea-level, to the hills and mountain region of the Himalayas, including Mount Everest at 8,848 metres. In fact, Nepal has 8 of the 10 highest mountain peaks in the world.

Nepal is the second poorest country in Asia after Afghanistan. It is also home to some of the friendliest people you will ever meet! Kathmandu hosts many development agencies and charities working in poverty reduction, conservation and social justice. As a Global Action school team you will visit staff working in the field to learn more about wildlife conservation and development solutions in Nepal.

The Experience in a nutshell

Our Chitwan programme is designed to give you an outstanding wildlife adventure, with a global learning focus on conservation and poverty reduction in post-earthquake Nepal. Because our Global Action Directors have lived and worked in Nepal, you’ll enjoy a programme built around personal experience and professional contacts.

Students will learn about conservation and development challenges in expert-led seminars at international organisations and Nepalese charities such as the UK government’s DFID, World Wildlife Fund or the Gurkha Welfare Scheme. The team can also get stuck into a community development project, and will enjoy a jungle wildlife safari in the Royal Chitwan National Park. The programme is topped off with a workshop on Buddhism, meditation and mindfulness at a beautiful monastery just outside Kathmandu.

Don't just take our word for it

Hundreds of students, teachers and parents give us glowing feedback every year.

  • It truly was a very special trip and one that I know has had a huge impact on the students.  The opportunities they had were fantastic and the students made the most of each and every one.  The whole team based both in the UK and Nepal have been fantastic in the planning and throughout ... I cannot thank you enough.  It was the least stressful trip I have ever been involved in!
