The Principal along with three teachers and seventeen students of Wilderness School, who are helping Kushudebu Public Health Mission Nepal from last 6 years, visited the Medical Center located in Solukhumbu of Annapurna reason. Forty nine Nepalese did also participate in visit. The visit was organized by World Expeditions Australia. During visit the beautiful Himalayas, villages, hills, green jungles, lobodendrum flowers and different scenes and sceneries are captured in the camera. The destination was set to visit Khopra of Annapurna region but due to bad weather and heavy rain, the team was not able to meet the target although the visitors were enjoying.

While travelling we reached at the beautiful village named Swants. I found Principal Jane Danvers and teacher Dr. Sally Nobbs were worried for the village and want to help the villagers as the heavy rain, one night before, damaged the potato farm. They asked me whether they can help the villagers. They were of soft hearted and willingness to help the villagers so they insist me to help them too. We organized the meeting with the committee and handed 500 dollar to the committee as the help from Wilderness School. This event proved that the visit of Wilderness School is not only a visit but is also a Help Campion to Nepal. The committee heartily thanked the team and wished for success of their remaining trip. The tem from Wilderness School were also happy to help the villagers in such a condition.

When the team reached at the Bahadure School which is being helped by Wilderness School from many years, Locals and teachers welcomed them with musical program. The team stayed in Bahadure School for three days. During these days the team participated in different musical programs, games and also visited the village. Bahadure School is located in Annapurna region which was being helped in different sector by Wilderness School. The main goal of Wilderness School was to upgrade the women education level in village area. Helping in the sector of uplifting the literacy level of rural women, Wilderness school is helping to develop an educated society of rural women who can contribute a major role in the development of village as well as nation as a whole.

In the last day of the trip, we reached in Pokhara. From Pokhara we headed to Chitwan and them Kathmandu. Later we went to visit Kushudebu Medical Center located at Solukhumbu. As the Medical Center is being helped by Wilderness School from very beginning we fill our honour to welcome the Principal of the school in the Medical Center. The team was welcomed in the Buddhist Tradition at the Medical Center. Different musical program was organised in the honour of the team and Head Lama of Serlo Monastery presented different gifts to the member of Wilderness School on the behalf of kushudebu Medical Center. During the program Wilderness School committed to provide 5000 Australian Dollar per year to the Medical Center. Likewise they also presented Book of Wilderness in Nepal and five laptops to Junbesi School. At the end of the trip the student from Wilderness School had help to varnish the newly built Birthing Room at Medical Center. And during the visit it was also announced that next year at the same time Wilderness School is going to organize a health camp at the Medical Center. In this way thanking Wilderness School for their various kinds of help to Medical Center, we concluded the two day visit of Solukhumbu successfully with full enjoyment.

We believe that the visit of Wilderness School to Nepal is fully successful, the team enjoyed the visit. We remember this visit as one of our wonderful moment of our memories. The visit is concluded here with the promise to meet again next year. We believe that different moments of joy and tears are the beautiful moment of the journey and the member of the School takes it as their adventurous and unforgettable moments of the life and they will share these moments with their friends and relatives in Australia. At last we would like to wish for the comfortable journey back to Adeliade, Australia.
