Nepal AGP 2021 - what's it really like?

Matt, Tucker, Michael and Ollie

Summing up my Nepal experiences in a couple of sentences is pretty hard. I chose to do an AGP to learn new leadership skills. I wanted to progress my career in the outdoor educational sector and really get a new experience in different landscapes in a different country. I feel like I’ve grown as an individual, I’ve improved my leadership skills, my teamwork ability has increased as well and I think it all has to do with our instructors and the people we’ve worked along the way. I’m so grateful for everything that I’ve learnt and all that you’ve helped me with.

Why Tucker joined the Nepal AGP and his favourite day on program


Why did I choose to do an AGP? Because I wanted an adventure. I wanted something completely out of the ordinary, I knew it was going to be hard work but I wanted to put myself through that. I wanted to learn new skills that none of my friends really knew and I wanted to take them on adventures. I also thought it would be a great way to meet people from other countries, not just Nepal but the other students on the program. I picked Nepal because I’ve always wanted to see mountains and you get the best mountains in the world here.

Matt from the Nepal AGP 2021


Coming in I'm not really quite sure what I expected.. I expected crazy outdoor experiences which I've certainly gotten... in a good way, of course. Also just meeting outstanding people all across the country. I think the reality is that both of those things are correct. Nepal is definitely a country I'd come back to, all the outdoors for activities, hiking, climbing, rafting, really anything to do with the outdoors sector. Also the people, the culture, the food has been amazing.. I've loved all the food we've eaten!
