Woodstock School's Gap Semester in the Himalaya
Studying Indian culture, learning to communicate in Hindi, trekking up snow peaks in Garhwal, exploring the picturesque settlements of Kaza, stumbling across millennia-old monasteries, spotting tigers in Corbett National Park, white-water rafting on the Ganges - there is something for every true adventurer in the Woodstock Gap Semester in the Himalaya.
Ask yourself, would you rather be:
Taking Freshman English or having a Hindi conversation with a shepherd in the Himalaya?
Riding the bus to University or going on a jeep safari looking for tigers?
Eating cafeteria food or sharing a meal with Buddhist monks in a 1000 year old monastery?
Walking the stairs to class or climbing a Himalayan peak?
If you are looking for a meaningful way to take a break before college, then the Woodstock Gap Semester in the Himalaya may be for you...
Highlights of the semester are:
- Learning Hindi and experiencing the culture of the Western Himalaya
- Service-learning projects and homestays in Himalayan villages
- Advanced first aid, basic mountaineering and introductory rafting
- Wildlife safari and an introduction to human-animal conflict
