Wanted: Canberra schools and cricket clubs with a sense of adventure

The Buddha Odyssey is calling for expressions of interest from Canberra schools and cricket clubs that would like to travel to Nepal in 2017.

These tours showcase the best of Nepal’s history, nature, cuisine and cultural traditions in a safe and welcoming environment. They present a rare opportunity for students and young people to see the world from a different perspective.

School adventure

School adventure

The Buddha Odyssey’s school tours are usually two weeks in length. Accompanied by an experienced team of English-speaking guides, students trek on the same trails as villagers, participate in cultural traditions and engage with students from local schools.

This is a rare opportunity for students, parents and teachers to experience the Nepalese way of life. Find out more.

Cricket tour


This tour is designed for school-aged cricket enthusiasts and their parents, coaches or teachers. Trip highlights include travel to world heritage sites in Kathmandu, five T20 cricket matches against local teams, two days of mountain trekking and a school visit to donate cricket kits to students.  Find out more.

Why Nepal?


There has never been a better time to experience Nepal’s rich culture and stunning natural scenery. More than a year after the April 2015 earthquake, local communities are again ready for tourists to experience their warm, welcoming hospitality. Many of these communities depend on tourism to survive, and may find their futures at risk if visitor numbers do not recover.

Why The Buddha Odyssey?


We strive to deliver exciting experiences that will stay with you for a lifetime, but we also take your safety seriously.

  •  Itineraries tailored to each group
  •  All leaders have current First Aid certificates
  •  Support staff undergo police checks
  •  Full risk assessments available upon request

What next?


If your school or cricket club is ready to embark on the adventure of a lifetime, email your expression of interest to travel@thebuddhaodyssey.com.
