Homestays and village tour are perhaps the best answers.
The heart of Nepal lies in villages in the mountains and hills. They can best represent Nepal and its hospitality. Mostly organic food harvested in nearby gardens, cooked in a traditional way and served with friendly smiles in a family setting is, for a traveler, a wonderful opportunity.
Don’t miss to view mesmerizing sunsets in the villages. If you are fortunate, you may see the villagers dancing and singing. In the evening, it may be a time to enjoy a glass of home-brewed beer called Chhyang or whiskey called Raksi.
During the time in the village, one can get involved in encouraging locals to use as much solar power for electricity and water heating as possible, use water wisely and tell them about its environmental impact and global warming. Developmental balance, better sanitation, and health, gender equality and other social issues can be discussed. We encourage travelers to get involved in village tours and listen to the rhythm of mountain life. Our team of Great Mountain Holidays that include guides, porter, cooking members are the people from the local communities.
The essential part of the village tour is the relation between the village host/community and the traveler. There are a few places in the world where you can trek with explanations for days and weeks with uninterrupted mountain scenery served with a hot meal every time. You may have local or homegrown tea whenever you stop.
Our team would accompany you through your tour and will provide you with information and insights about the place, the culture and the way of life of the people you will meet and stay together with.
