  • Description

    Description

    Are you looking for an opportunity to live with a family and work on an Organic Tea farm during your stay in Nepal? Consider spending time with us at our Tea Garden.

    Location: Our organic tea farm is located halfway between the terai plains and Ilam Bazaar. It is around 600km far from the capital city of Nepal.

    Ilam’s rolling hills are lush green with tea gardens. Thick white fogs alternatively descend to veil the gardens and then suddenly vanish.

    Accommodation

    Accommodation: Volunteers stay at a home with our families. Nepali people are extremely hospitable and volunteers will be well looked after, however the accommodation will be typically Nepali and therefore basic by Western standards. Toilets and showers are usually Nepali style, and the electricity supply in many places can be unreliable. We have lots of previous experience in looking after volunteers. Volunteers are given a simple room with very basic things.

    Meals: Based on Nepalese dining customs, we provide two major meals a day plus two tea and snack breaks. Tea is served around 7 am. Brunch is served around 9 to 10 am and is usually typical Nepali food, dal/bhat (rice, lentils, and vegetables). Tea is served again at around 3 pm with local snacks. Dinner is at around 7 to 8 pm. The food is very simple but also extremely tasty and filling. Vegetables mostly comes from our own gardens. Fresh milk and curd are also provided if available.

    "As a Workaway Ambassador I felt that this place makes you forget about the wild travels you're going through and let's you relax with tea making and cool chats with other volunteers. I personally felt this was professional Workaway Host, an absolute win for the Workaway community and Highly recommended from a Ambassador perspective"
