Educational tourism

Prof Dr Ramesh Kumar Bajracharya

Nepal Mountain Academy has all possible means to develop its tailored programs that can practically entice international students to be in the place where mountaineering education can, in essence, impart truly professional education of high academic importance. This paves the path to educational tourism. It can be a strong partner to the concept of sustainable development through educational tourism. Medical sciences and engineering studies programs have already been into this framework and now mountaineering education is going to be sure shot as well. It is developed because of the growing popularity of teaching and learning of knowledge and the enhancing of technical competency outside of the classroom environment. Educational institutions at home or abroad are the ambassadors to sustainable development programs for they can easily promote the concept once students move out of their usual classroom activities.

In educational tourism, the main focus of the tour or leisure activity includes visiting another country to learn about the culture, study tours, or to work and apply skills learned inside the classroom in a different environment, such as in the International Practicum Training Program.

The academy in this light of its academic and training programs can achieve commendable results in short period once its programs come to the floor. Many observable factors indicate that resources may not be a stagnant condition since expertise gathered and developed at a different location and time look forward to being of some use for good and when opportunities are ready knocking at doorstep there are people in this sector extending their friendly hands. The academy has a bright future.
