Initiative Outdoor (I.O.) is a Nepal-based outdoor school, primarily with a focus on wilderness first aid, technical rescue and leadership & teamwork (including client care, responsibility, ethics and communication). There is a desperate need for these skills in Nepal with the current rate of flooding landslides and the ever-present threat of earthquake. As a registered instructor with internationally renowned first aid and rescue organizations, Chandra Ale(I.O’s founder) is intent on bringing these skills to Nepal on a larger scale. Our courses are for participants from all backgrounds, from school groups to interested individuals to experienced river and mountain guides. Initiative Outdoor was founded in 2004 and is continually evolving and updating its focus to meet modern demands and technical requirements – its motto is Learning by Experience and this motto applies to our participants, our instructors and even the company itself! Every course builds on those that have gone before it, making each one the best that is can be.
