About us

Today’s competitive academic environment puts increasing demands on students to spend greater and greater amounts of time in the classroom, and less time pursuing other activities. Outdoor education helps develop life skills that cannot be gained in the classroom and contributes significantly to personal all-round development.

In fact, these ‘out of classroom’ experiences can actually help increase the capacity for academic learning by encouraging different approaches for thinking about and solving problems. Outdoor programs instill in students a sense of responsibility, assist them in building trust, self confidence and a strong sense of team spirit. An additional benefit of outdoor education is that students learn to enjoy, respect and care for the natural environment.

Activities

This is your chance to really get out there and think and learn in ways you've never tried before. Take some seriously difficult leadership scenarios, a bit of dynamic teamwork and the core values of what Initiative Outdoor is really about and see just how far you can push yourself - the sky is the limit...or is it?

School Programs

Learning should be fun and interesting but that’s not always easy in a classroom with limited resources. I.O. uses hands-on, experiential learning in an outdoor environment to encourage students to take responsibility for their own learning process and development.

White Water Rafting

International tourism statistics rate Nepal as one of the top 5 destinations in the World for White Water Rafting and for good reason! Rivers like the Bhote Kosi and Trisuli come roaring down from the Himlalayas picking up speed as they go through a series of waterfalls and narrow canyons.

Backpacking & Hiking

There's nothing quite like the satisfaction of walking a whole day with your whole world on your back... Except maybe taking the whole world off your back, slipping off your boots and lying back in your tent with a steaming mug of coco! This is the world of backpacking. Whether you like to meander your way..

Caving & Rappelling with IO. - So much to explore in this little town bandipur . Abseiling/rappelling 70 meters down through the dark passage of the cave ceiling was just thrilling to be a highlight of the trip, and just physically demanding enough to make you sense that you'd achieved something truly cool without really knowing what you are doing. #adventure #nepal #travel #caving #absieling #bandipur
