A transition year opportunity for people of any age in Sikkim, Northern India


Himalayan Gap Year is a programme set up by Spaff and Cathy Ackerly in
consultation with Ringu Tulku Rinpoche. After completing a 3 year 3 month
retreat at BMC Sikkim, under the guidance of  Rinpoche, they have set up
cross cultural links with Sikkim for young and not so young adults who'd like
to broaden their experience and get involved in a different culture through
volunteering or /and studies.

The programme is part hosted in Sikkim by Rinpoche's brother  Pema Namgyal
whose 'home from home',  The Hotel Pomra in Sikkim's capital, Gangtok, provides a
base. They are taking their first group of US High School graduates in the autumn of
2012.  
It would be an interesting opportunity for transition year and they welcome students
from Ireland and across Europe.
