2018 Jungle Jamboree
In October 2018 we took a party of Explorer Scouts from Cabot on an awesome 16-day trip to Nepal.
We flew to Kathmandu, staying in the historic Thamel quarter, visited the world heritage sites of BoudhaNath, SwayambhuNath and PashpartiNath, before travelling to Meghauli.
In Meghauli, we ran a Jungle Jamboree, a camp for the local Scout Groups, visiting health improvement projects and taking part in an elephant safari in the jungle!
After a week in Meghauli we moved on the Pokhara – Nepal’s second city and gateway to the massive Annapurna mountain range. From here there was be a choice of two activities. The first is a 3 day white-water canoeing and camping trip, and the second is a high-level trek into the mountains staying in the famous Nepalese Tea Houses along the way.
