  • Accommodation


    I have two room for volunteers there are four bed in those room where they can live freely and share their feelings& ideas. For food we will have 3 meals per day together. Those meals are made out of our own organic products and we have to ask you kindly to pay 5 Dollars per day for experience this traditional nepali food. With this investment you will support local and biological agriculture, so we hope you don´t mind. There is also a shop near by our house where you can buy some things you need. Otherwise you can walk to the city which is just 45 minutes away by foot or 10 minutes by taxi. We also have a traditional nepali shower and bathroom.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    I was also a trekking guide some years ago. So you can ask me about trekking and benefit from my personal contacts ( for example also paragliding ) if you would like to enjoy those experiences.
    It is also possible for you to go hiking in the area of my home with me as your guide or on your own.
    In this area (smal jungle) you get the opportunity to see animals like leopard, bear, Nepali rabbit, snakes...
    So we would love to have you here as our friend and welcome you in our home.

    Note:- If you have more than two weeks that will be better. Because I also can teach something and u also can teach me something.
