Why Nature-Link?

Our courses are designed for students who want to see and do more!

Our trips combine both front and back country adventure with academic courses in remote portions of the Himalaya. Our itinerary is packed full some days with long hikes, some with long bus rides, and other days with long stretches of time to contemplate the “abode of the gods”. Our trips require a spirit for adventure, a dedication to learning, a deep respect for cultural diversity, but most of all a good attitude.

Unscripted Adventure

Unscripted adventure: Anytime one travels internationally the adventure is real. Nature-Link trips are planned very carefully but in many instances last minute decisions must be made. India runs on its own time schedule, mountain weather can’t be forecasted, sometimes the trains simply stop running, things happen in India that make travel dynamic. On a Nature-Link trip because of the way students are immersed into the culture and landscape many times plans must be changed at the last minute requiring you to throw in a helping hand or maybe simply relax, wait and talk to the holy man next to you.

College Credits

College credits: University of Montana credits in the social sciences. Academics are an important aspect of Nature-Link trips and although many other travel opportunities exist Nature-Link is able to offer international travel coupled with pertinent academic classes in the social sciences with real academic vigor. All of our courses are accredited through the University of Montana.

Total Cultural Immersion

Total cultural immersion: With Nature-Link trips you become completely immersed in Indian culture. We eat what the locals eat in every region; we travel the same as the locals, and breathe in local culture at every turn. Nature-Link takes pride in offering the most authentic experiences possible. The only things around you that are not authentic India are your fellow classmates, although after a few weeks in India many of them begin to look like they belong in India too.

All Inclusive

All inclusive: No hidden cost here. Nature-Link takes care of all your in country expenses. Once we pick you up from the airport you won’t need to reach for your wallet once. We understand that international travel is expensive, and we believe that once you have paid for your trip you should not have to fret about money, but rather concentrate on your experience. Many trips are not as inclusive as they seem at first, with Nature-Link everything is taken care of. Of course we won’t buy Aunt Susie her own personal meditation ball but you get the idea.
