TEFL Kathmandu | TEFL Nepal
nepal, birthplace of the Buddha, truly is a special place. Nestled along the uniquely impressive and world-renowned Himalayan mountain range, Nepal is a mystical country of warm-hearted people, time-worn temples and an incredibly diverse geography. Its landscape is incredible, boasting some of the best walking trails on the planet. Although Nepal isn’t particularly well-off in financial terms, the country’s welcoming and friendly people, landscape, traditions, religions and culture all culminate; for many, one visit is simply not enough.
From the awe-inspiring Himalayas to the lush green national parks, the countless temples and pagodas to the bustling markets, street sellers, and clubs and bars of Kathmandu, Nepal has something for everyone, and for most visitors to Nepal, something about its scenery, people, traditions or culture lingers with them long after they've moved on.
Eight out of ten of the world's highest peaks are found in Nepal, including the world's highest - Mount Everest, at 8850 meters. Nepal is the top of the world!
The tefl international TEFL course in Nepal is in Kathmandu. With a population of half a million people, Kathmandu is Nepal's biggest and most cosmopolitan city, a meeting place of a dozen ethnic groups, and the home town of the Newars, Nepal's master craftsmen and traders extraordinaire. It was trade that created Kathmandu, and for at least a thousand years it controlled the most important caravan route between Tibet and india. No wonder perhaps, that Kathmandu has so completely embraced the tourist business.
Tradition says that old Kathmandu was laid out in the shape of a khukuri knife. Positioned at what would be the hilt of the knife is Durbar Square - a relentless carnival set amidst temples, monuments and the Fonner royal palace while the city's oldest neighborhoods stretch northeast and southwest. New Road, the city's best-known shopping street, runs east from the square. Kathmandu's budget hotels are concentrated in two areas: Thamel, north of Durbar Square in a new part of town, and Jhochhen, (better known as Freak Street!), immediately south of the square.
Suburban Kathmandu sprawls mainly east of Kantipath, the main north-south thoroughfare, and is dominated by two landmarks, the Royal Palace and the Tundikhel (parade ground) .Most of the expensive hotels, restaurants and airline offices huddle together along Durbar Marg, the broad boulevard running south from the palace gate. West of the Bishnumati River is not, strictly speaking, part of Kathmandu, but the hilltop temple of Swayambhu is close enough to be reached easily on foot.
You certainly won’t be short of ideas for weekend activities, or onward travel, either before, during or after your TEFL course in Nepal:
