Virtual Heritage Tours are a series of digital storytelling that invite tour leaders to take digital audiences on tours of locations around Nepal and the world. The monthly series has taken numerous themes including climate change in the Himalayas and most recently gender through special edition for the Women of the World Festival Nepal’s Virtual programs. Through the VHT series, Story Cycle and the British Council have not only increased the digital footprint of isolated and remote outposts of Nepal but have created legacy documents that are full of expert knowledge about these locations and the challenges they face. It has also enhanced the ability of leading the tours to tell better stories about their work.
StoryCycle provides specially curated experiences, workshops and guided tours in various cities in the country for depending upon requirements, schools, colleges, groups and individuals. We are hosting immersive and diverse events that bring people closer to their local heritage and culture from the beginning.
