Are you ready for a life-defining experience?

Study abroad and explore the cultural, geographical and physiological aspects of the life of the Sherpa people while undertaking a challenging physical experience in the mountains of Nepal.

You'll visit Kathmandu and the Khumbu Valley, where you'll trek in a high-altitude environment-as high as 18,540 feet in the shadow of Mount Everest-and witness clear examples of the effects of climate change. You'll also volunteer in a Nepalese orphanage. This program will raise your expectations of what study abroad can be. Learn more here.
