For the fourth year in a row, the Nepalese community welcomes all APU students, faculty and staff to experience a week of enthralling events. As the chilling winds of the winter descend upon up, the Nepalese students at APU are proud to present a captivating show of events incorporating the diversity of cultures from the icy and serene Himalayan highlands.

Nepal faced a major setback this year. A great earthquake wreaked havoc throughout the nation, leaving nothing but devastated remains and debris. Expressing our gratitude to the international community, we aim to make this year’s Nepal Week unlike any that have come before it by showcasing the astonishing resilience of the Nepalese people. We guarantee you will be spellbound.

Throughout the week, the delicious aroma of Nepalese curry will engulf the campus and be accompanied by the performance of several traditional shows. The Grand Show will offer tear-jerking portrayals of the horrors that the Nepalese people went through during the earthquake, but it will also highlight the rich and blended culture of Nepal, featuring eye-catching dances, traditional dresses and good music.

So, people of APU, are you ready to experience an icy breeze blowing straight from the Himalayas? Winter is coming, so let’s usher it in with Nepal Week.
