A new and novel concept, village tourism gives you the opportunity to discover the true spirit of Nepal. The experience of staying in an unspoiled village with a host family is not just quaint and unique, but also gives you a rare opportunity to know the locals and their culture.
Itinerary and Highlights
You can participate in the traditional dances in the evening. Visit and study the local temples or monasteries, and trek or hike to the surrounding mountains. You could even do something as simple yet enriching as walking around with your host family as they go about their daily chores, tending animals, tilling fields, going to school... or simply sit and chat with the villagers. You can also partake the botanical tours or visit the local ayurvedic/medicinal plant nurseries.
Sirubari - The Ideal Village
A short drive and walk away from Pokhara, the Sirubari Village, nestled at 1,700m above sea level is ideal for sampling the Nepal village life. It is a totally unspoiled Gurung settlement. Though you can come here any time of the year, the best months are from June to September. Thumro, just an hour's walk from Sirubari offers you a spectacular view. For on a clear day you can drink in rolling foothills dotted with isolated farming communities, and crowned by majestic snow peaks. Rating: 5/5
