Gain valuable work experience in the heart of the Himalaya!
We work with businesses in the capital city of Kathmandu, known for its stunning backdrop of the Himalayan mountains. Fantastic for people wanting to gain business experience in a developing country with incredible scenery on their doorstep.
Our Covid-19 Guarantee gives you reassurance and helps you plan ahead in unpredictable times.
Nepal offers beautiful scenery, world class trekking and worthwhile work placements.
You can easily experience Nepal’s rich culture when exploring the many ancient temples and bustling markets of Kathmandu and Pokhara. Take time off your work placement in Nepal to trek in the Himalayan mountains and even fly around the world’s tallest mountain, Sagarmatha (Mount Everest) before you return home. It’s a fascinating country to get immersed in during your work placement.
The Nepalese are known for their generous hospitality and kind nature and will welcome you to experience their culture and traditions.
Our Business placements are in the busy capital city of Kathmandu. It’s a thriving Asian city with a dynamic business culture. English is widely spoken and you’ll gain first hand experience of doing business internationally.
During your free time you’ll have endless opportunities for adventure, such as trekking through the mountains, mountain biking, paragliding and white water rafting. Or simply relax in one of the many roof top coffee bars or restaurants and take in the distant views of the Himalayan mountains.
During summer months (June – September) Nepal can get quite hot and humid, and there can be heavy rains in the afternoons. In the winter there will be much more blue sky & sunshine with daytime temperatures around 20 degrees and evenings just above freezing.
