Nepal Village Tour

A NEW CONCEPT IN NEPAL TRAVEL In the past touring in Nepal has meant either trekking along the trails or staying in specially built resorts. Getting to know the local and their culture has been difficult. Now you can experience a stay in an unspoiled village living as a family member.

Village tours allow visitors to experience a stay in a typical Nepali village. This gives visitors an opportunity to observe the real Nepalese cultural tradition from the closest quarter and intermingle with the locals. Besides, any expenses made at that level directly contribute to the welfare of the local community, hence giving the visitors a sense of satisfaction. Village Tour differs from trekking in a couple of important ways. First, although some walking is involved, and a trekking permit may even be required, exercise is secondary to the cultural experience: the whole point is to stay in one village and get to know its people, not to cover distances between villages. Second, accommodation is in an actual home, not a trekking inn filled with other backpackers, so the cross-cultural exchange is more authentic.

Village Tours are conducted in Sirubari, Bandipur, Kakani, Gorkha, and other places. But I highly recommend my clients to observe Sirubari village, as it is one of the best typical village in Nepal. So here I have described about a village of Sirubari and its itineraries in detail.
