My home is located in northwestern Nepal. It offers the chance to experience traditional Nepalese life in a remote village up away from the tourist trail. We will provide you with comfortable accommodation with hot water and free wifi. Our home cooked Nepalese meals are prepared from scratch made with organic produce from the local farmers.
During your stay with us, you can get involved in farming and building authentic mud or earthen houses for our village. We aim to give you a good knowledge of Nepali culture during your time with us so we also offer language lessons which will help to give you the full Nepali experience!
You will also be able to go hiking, participate in Nepalese cultural programs and even spend a night in the jungle! We recently started an orchid garden by growing wild orchids in the surrounding area so you will be able to visit this too. We hope you will become as enthusiastic about farming and building natural structures as we are.
10% of all our costs will be donated to the people of the village to help with education, medicals and food for those in need.
How to get there:
The quickest and easiest way to get here is by microbus from the small Gongabu bus station (next to New Bus Station) in Kathmandu to Besisahar. Please try to take the early microbus around 6 or 6.30 am. You will find the ticket booth next to the main road. This journey will take about 6 hours but it will stop once for a toilet break and to get some food. Its best to set off no later than 6 in order to catch the pink 161 bus from Besisahar to our village, Guanshahar. This runs once a day from opposite the Tukuche Peak Hotel and leaves around 2 pm. Please tell to the driver to get off in front of hotel Tukuche other wise you will go far from. Watch out for it on the left as you enter Besisahar. Both bus rides are very scenic; the bus from Kathmandu to Besisahar costs around 500 NPR (5 dollars) and the bus from Besisahar to Guanshahar costs 100 NPR.
In case you miss the bus from Besisahar to my village (Gaunshahar) you can either walk yourself (there are many people on route who will be able to point you in the right direction...it will take around 1.5 hours and is around 4km uphill) or we can arrange a porter to assist with your bags. Porter charge is 500 NPR. Alternatively we can arrange a jeep at the cost of 3000 NPR.
