80% of Nepali people live in the country side. Many of these villages still have their own language, culture and lifestyle so it is a tremendous experience to go on a village tour and see the local markets, culture, lifestyle, agricultural products and handicrafts. Most villages in Nepal are characterized by a mixture of economic, caste, kinship, occupational, and religious groups.
Although Nepal is developing faster than it ever, the rural poor of Nepal get very few of the benefits. The majority of families in the rural area are farming with unproductive and infertile land. With climate change and deforestation, landslides have become increasingly dangerous and more frequent, destroying homes, schools, and killing many. Many have to walk hours or days to get to medical care while many children lack access to schools due to living in isolated regions or being unable to afford uniform, books, or school fees.
Throughout the world, village tourism has been identified as an important tool to alleviate poverty in rural areas. Tourism can provide an alternative income for the people of rural villages of Nepal, to help reduce poverty and create economic incentives to stay in their home region rather than migrating to overcrowded cities. Visitors staying in these areas buy locally grown products and locally made handicrafts in addition to paying for room and board. When tourists buy handicrafts directly from locals, it gets rid of the middleman and allows the full price to be given to the locals, therefore supporting their livelihood. While staying in the village, you will be able to experience traditional Nepali hospitality and learn about their culture and way of life. Eco tourism is highly sustainable and allows both you and the locales to benefit from this cultural exchange.
While staying in the villages, guests enjoy comfortable accommodation, delicious local food and an experience that creates memories that will last a lifetime . Many villages in Nepal are close to unspoiled natural areas where wildlife may be seen undisturbed. This can be a feature of our packages for special interest groups.
