Nepal Trek

Fourth Annual Nepal Leadership Trek for Johnson Alumni

May 26, 2014 — June 7, 2014 (16 days)

Nepal Trek

Leadership development is a deliberate, reflective, lifelong endeavor. The Johnson Nepal Leadership Trek provides an opportunity to continue this process using the stunning Himalayas and the inspiring Nepali culture as a back drop with fellow Johnson graduates. 

  • Fly to Kathmandu, the capital of Nepal, for three days of touring and learning the language, culture, health habits, and yoga.
  • Visit Pokhara, one of the main tourist destinations of Nepal.
  • Trek through the magnificent Annapurna range for seven days, staying in lodges in the villages along the way.
  • Volunteer at a local school in the very last village before the Annapurna Base Camp.
  • Visit monasteries and receive a blessing from one of the masters at Bodhnath, the center of the Tibetan Buddhist culture.

Participate in daily, structured exercises for reflecting on the insights of the day, the experience, and life in general.
