Experience

Nepal is a very special country! I got to learn a lot about its fascinating culture including rituals and festivals thanks to my IAESTE Mentors who answered my endless questions. Moreover, I got the chance to connect with a few locals, try lots of delicious food, and gain insights into the daily life in the capital city. I can't wait to come back and visit the friends I made here!

Discover

One of the reasons I chose to intern in Nepal was the countries vast mountain landscapes, and they didn't disappoint! I went hiking in the Himalayas two times and have to say that those trips are still among the most beautiful ones I ever went on. In my free time and on the weekends, I also explored the hiking trails around Kathmandu with my friends. I would recommend a trip to Nepal to anyone who loves the mountains!
