The participants from V.S Niketan School got a chance to explore their adventurous side during their Adventurous Journey to Chitlang for their Award. They started their one night bronze level Adventurous Journey from Kathmandu to Chitlang on January 11, 2020. As one of the Bronze level participant Alin Shiwakoti stated the goal of his adventurous journey was; “To be close to nature, to learn the hidden history behind the place,to experience to travel in wood”
The Adventurous Journey is all about getting out and going on an expedition or exploration in an unfamiliar and challenging environment with a clear purpose. More than any other section of The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award , the Adventurous Journey is about team work and social connection with both the team members who will undertake the journey, and also the volunteers who instruct, supervise and assess the journey.
At the heart of the Adventurous Journey is the opportunity for participants to engage in activities that require determination, physical effort, perseverance, problem solving and cooperation. Through this Adventurous Journey the participants of V.S Niketan School were able to experience all this and more.
