Best of Nepal Homestay Tour

Durtation: 11 Days

Price: US 599 All Inclusive

Best of Nepal Homestay Tour is a very good opportunity to explore and some of the famous villages of Nepal but primarily focusing on Gorkha. Gorkha district has its own distinct history. Modern Nepal was unified from smaller kingdoms to a single nation by the great king Prithvi Narayan Shah was the king of Gorkha. So lots of history lectures here!

Villages of Nepal are pristine and unspoiled hardly touched by modernization. On our homestay, we explore both the scenic views of the surroundings as well as explore the cultures and traditions of the people residing here and accept their warm hospitality.

Apart from culture, tasting authentic local organic food and comfortable accommodation managed by the locals be the features of this tour. During your trip, you will get beautiful views of terraced landscapes, lush green forests and hills surrounding the village.

Mountain peaks such as Buddha Himal, Lamjung Himal, Shringi Himal and many other small peaks will always be sparkling like diamonds in the background wherever you step your foot in. The Daraudi River flows through many villages. Sunrise and sunset views from the top of the viewpoint are also quite striking.

The majority of the people living here are Gurungs, Tamang, & Aryans whereas other ethnic groups are few in numbers. Our tour starts from Barpak, Ghyachowk, Namki village or Bhachek village passing Sirani Dada and so on.

Best of Nepal homestay lets you experience a wide variety of cultures in one trip and you will definitely enjoy and collect many fond memories from the villages of historic Gorkha district.

Even though the time during the earthquake was unbearable for the locals residing in Barpak, they have now settled themselves emotionally as well as physically.
