Welcome at Ilam Organic Tea farm! As our guest you can get involved in the regular farm activities. You will gain hands-on experience helping the tea farmers and local communities to cultivate and harvest organic tea through sustainable farming methods. Tasks and projects vary depending on the season and current needs. Farm maintenance chores include soil preparation, weed control, cultivating seedlings, working on the tea plantations, pruning, harvesting, processing and packaging. You are also most welcome to lend a hand in our vegetable plots and kitchen. We do not have any fixed working days and hours.



You stay at my home with my family. Nepali people are extremely hospitable and you will be well looked after. Our home is typically Nepali and therefore basic by Western standards. There is mostly a regular electricity supply. We have two rooms, which we offer. You will have your own simple room with basic things. Typical Nepali meals will be served at least three times a day and include simple, but nourishing rice, vegetable curry, dal (lentil soup), chutney, milk and sometimes local fruits. The food is mostly organic and we can prepare vegetarian options as well.

  • Accommodation
  • Three meals a day

Meet Dipak

Member since: April 2014

My name is Dipak and I am 35 years old. I live together with my parents, my wife and my son in Phikkal in the Ilam Districit where the best Nepali tea comes from. The Tea farm is a small-scale family run farm. Beside this, we also have some agricultural plots where we grow varieties of vegetables and some cereals too. We also have few livestock. While staying with us you will experience authentic rural Nepalese way of living, our culture and tradition, language, every aspect of tea gardening, ecological farming practices and methods.
