Wedged between the high Himalaya and the steamy Indian plains, Nepal is characterized by snow peaks and Sherpas, yaks and yetis, monasteries, and mantras. The right mixture of adventure and sublime peacefulness under a constant backdrop of spectacular mountains is something that you cannot miss to experience.
The Adventurous Abode
The Himalaya, here, is the definitive goal for most mountain lovers. Nowhere else can you trek for days in implausible mountain backdrop, shelter in the knowledge that a hot meal, cozy lodge and a warm slice of apple pie await you at the end of the day! Besides there’s the adrenaline kick of rafting a roaring Nepali river or bungee jumping into a bottomless Himalayan gorge. Canyoning, climbing, kayaking, paragliding, and mountain biking all offer a rush against the milieu of some of the world’s most vivid landscapes.
The Spiritual Bliss
This cultural powerhouse of the Himalaya offers a matchless collection of world-class palaces, concealed backstreet shrines and transcendent temple art. Strolling through the medieval city squares of Kathmandu, Patan and Bhaktapur, and accompanying Tibetan Buddhist pilgrims on a spiritual stroll around centuries-old stupas and monasteries is going to redefine peace for you.
A Traveler’s Paradise
There are not many countries in the world that can give you a similar taste of independent travel as Nepal. Walking alongside the trekking shops, bakeries and pizzerias, it’s easy to feel that you have somehow landed in a kind of backpacker nirvana. Nepal’s wild and abstruse national parks, which lend you the prospect of skimming the treetops for exotic bird species and comb the jungles for rhinos, tigers and myriad birdlife is going to leave you overwhelmed.
Whether you cross the country by mountain bike, motorbike, raft or tourist bus, Nepal offers a bewilderingly diverse array of charms and landscapes. The biggest problem you might face in Nepal is just how to fit everything in!
The Persistent Struggle with Progress
Despite all the picturesque landscape and cultural treasures, Nepal is one of the least developed countries in the world according to the United Nations classification. Therefore, it’s even more crucial for us to take this fact into consideration and contribute in whatever way we can for this gorgeous nation to prosper. AIESEC provides this opportunity to create a social impact and the emerging start-up culture provides a plethora of options to acquire some great work experience.
Going for a social or corporate internship to this exceedingly stunning and unruffled abode through AIESEC is going to transform you in a way that your approach towards life after coming back is going to make you shine out of the crowd. The satisfaction that you would obtain after working for the underdeveloped society in this country is going to lend you immense pleasure.
