Why Read Before Travelling to Nepal?

Our  "Women 4 Women Walking Retreats"  will be heading to Nepal in November 2019 and April 2020.

In Preparation
 There’s hardly a better way to research a country than by picking up a novel or collection of essays and learning about the place from the people who really know it.

While not much Nepali language literature is translated into English, fortunately, there are a number of excellent writers, both Nepali and international, who have astutely written about the country in English over the years.
So whether novels, poetry, short stories, political analysis or travel writing are more your thing, this list has you covered.

The Books
April - September 2019

We live in many cities so let's chat by Zoom and continue the discussions in our FB group online.

While it would be ideal to have everyone sitting around discussing the same book about Nepal, we all have different aspects of the country that interest us.  In our club, you chose the book you want then share with us what you have learnt.

By going online you can get involved as much or as little as you want, there’s no pressure. It’s just good to consider other’s points of view and share the learnings 

Buy a book. Read a book.
Share what you've learnt
at our upcoming online
