Climbing Ama Dablam Day 2: Arrival in Kathmandu

Today is arrival day in Kathmandu. It will be delightful to be back in this vibrant city, catch up with several friends, and start meeting my Ama Dablam teammates.

The population of Nepal is approximately 27 million which makes it the 41st most populous country in the world.

Find Your Fit Fact

People who walk and exercise more have a lower chance of exhibiting symptoms associated with colds and flu. This is because walking mobilizes the immune system which makes you more resistant to the symptoms of flu and other such diseases. When active people do have a flu, their symptoms are less severe than sedentary people by about 41%.

Find Your Fit Activity Suggestion: Hiking Boot Tag

Outcome: To engage students in a fun game

Materials: N/A

Setup: N/A

Rules and procedures: Students will form groups of two. You will begin by telling the students that when trekking to a mountain in Nepal, they will need to wear proper hiking boots! Ask everyone to don an imaginary backpack and hiking boots. Students then stand back to back to their partners. On “Go”, both partners spin around 180 degree and face one another. At this time, they attempt to tag their partners “hiking boot” with their own “hiking boot”. Be sure to remind students that hiking boots are quite strong and that it is important not to stamp too hard on their partners feet. Students should play best 4 of 7 rounds or continue playing until the teacher acknowledges the conclusion of the activity.
