The manager of Borderlands welcomed the students followed by the safety briefing. To make the students more ease and comfortable with each other the Borderlands group organized some icebreaking activities. After the activities the students enjoyed the delicious Nepali food.
The next day was more fun filled, the students welcomed the day with some activities like line up, human spiral and block tag, and the students enjoyed the activities.
