    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Travelers will be able to experience very traditional Nepali culture and ways of life. They will benefit by learning how to produce vegetables and experience animal husbandry. They will experience first hand the rural landscape of Nepal in a very natural environment. Since we are relatively close to the Himalayas, we have a beautiful panorama of the Ganesh Himal range. There are more than 100 species of wild birds in the surrounding ecosystem and travelers will be able to view and capture pictures of them. While taking care of the goats, travelers will be able to experience jungle safari and learn about many wild beneficial plants. Travelers will be able to learn about Hindu philosophy since we have keen knowledge in Hinduism.

    Help

    We need people who can garden with us. We also need people who can accompany the goats in the pasture while foraging and collect grass for the goats and buffalo that don't go to forage. Because we have many chickens, we need people to look after them during the day time. Sometimes we may need people to help us in general construction. We usually work 5 hours a day 5 days a week, but the shift may vary according to the season.

    We have the largest tree in Gorkha near by. Travelers will be able to visit temples in the locality. There is a short hike to the peak of Mahadev Danda where rhododendron flowers in February to March.
