Travelers fully experience places, rather than merely observing them. To do this they must first accept them. Accept that Nepal is not that developed, that life is difficult here and sometimes out of their comfort zone and that life operates at a different pace, and that local people are fascinated by them and sometimes stare.

The people I met and the experiences I had during my time in Nepal forever changed my life. I cannot explain why I wanted to volunteer in Nepal, but I had always had been fascinated with the mystique and beauty of the country. Nepal is such a diverse country both environmentally and ethnically.  As a young boy I would read books about Nepal and fantasize about what it would be like to trek through the hills and sacred mountains or explore the wilderness and remoteness of the flat lands of the country and beautiful rivers.
