Nepal is a land of spectacular scenery, ancient Buddhist monasteries and some of the best trekking, mountaineering, and river rafting on earth. Tumultuous rivers fill glaciated valleys, ancient trails meander below towering 8,000 meter peaks and villages dot the landscape. MGI programs here offer a chance to experience the incredible Sherpa culture, trek through the awesome panorama of the Himalayas, climb among the tallest peaks of the world, and raft awe inspiring whitewater while learning expedition and leadership skills.

Nepal MGI trips give you the opportunity to visit ancient temples and trek over remote mountain passes alongside local villagers. All courses are accompanied by one of our local Sherpa guides who will share the fascinating culture and history of the country and give you a personal introduction to this magical land. Imagine climbing to the top of one of myriad towering peaks in the Everest region or rafting an exciting section of Class IV rapids. Nepal, the perfect outdoor classroom, is a land of dramatic landscapes, rich culture, and high adventure.
