Student tours in Nepal have designed by Freelance Mountain Guide who has trekked since 2005 in the Himalayas of Nepal. Student tours provide you an immense opportunity for trekkers to explore Village Culture, Traditions, Localities, Religions, customs, and Magical Himalayas. This type of tour in Nepal might be the best opportunity for student groups for their further studies and research.
There are quite some suitable trekking trails for student tours in Nepal but the 5 days Mardi Himal trek will be the best sample trek for this trip because it is short, easy, and affordable. This trekking is suitable for all kinds of trekkers and especially for student learning group is perfect to gain so much extra information and knowledge practically.
Kathmandu valley is the best place where you can visit many historical and cultural places with old art and architects. Since 5 the century and few of them lies in the UNESCO World Heritage Site which is useful for students for their research. So as a theme I would say Affordable student tour and the trek is a complete package tour in Nepal which is safe, and affordable for all kinds of tourist.

Students tour generally I design around the lower loop of Annapurna region for 4 nights 5 days as they have a richness of culture, Historical places, magnificent Himalayan vistas and heavenly made walking route. These all things can be the best topics for student groups to make your journal or thesis in a different scenario and the region.
The most beautiful month to visit in Nepal for students is Spring (March to May) & Autumn (September to November) for the trek. Still, this trip can be done in winter though, but there will be cold.
