I am British, married to a Nepalese lady. We have two adult daughters (aged 26 & 21).
Neeru is from an area of East Nepal and traveled extensively when she was an air-hostess with Royal Nepal Airlines. Her interests are cooking and gardening and she looks forward to sharing some of her Nepalese recipe secrets with you.
Steve was born in Jersey Channel Islands of the United Kingdom and traveled to Nepal in the early 1980s to work with the famous Tiger Tops Jungle Lodge. He spent five years in the jungles of Nepal, managing several lodges and camps and studying wildlife, and he trekked extensively in Nepal while working as Director of Sales for our Nepal outfitter.
In Kathmandu, Steve overseas the running of the Himalayan Children's Foundation, which educates underprivileged and orphaned children from remote mountain districts. In Bhutan, he is involved with a project that supports a family-run traditional art school outside of the capital, Thimphu. Steve has also guided journeys in Tibet, including the ethereal setting of Rongbuk Monastery below the North Face of Everest. I originally came to Nepal on a holiday 20 years ago. That holiday has turned into a non-stop adventure of a lifetime. He speaks fluent Nepali. Steve originally travelled to Nepal on holiday and never left.

Helping with Tourists
You'll get to interact with both tourists and local Nepalese. This is an opportunity to learn about Nepal and her diverse culture. You'll get hands-on experience in our garden and with general management of a small family-run guest house. Learn how to cook Nepalese food .... you'll never look back on learning how to cook (and eat) Momos !
We run a 7 bedroom comfortable homestay-style property in the hills just north of Kathmandu.
We have a HUGE garden and vegetable area that needs tending to on a daily basis. We have guests staying on most days and help with giving them advice about the local area and taking them on walks to local villages and monasteries is often needed.
If you are interested in cooking then you can join our guests with cooking lessons and learn how to cook Nepalese dishes. If you have a special dish from your country that you'd like to show off then we welcome this as well.
We offer Yoga at our property and if you are a Yoga teacher we welcome you staying and give our guests Yoga lessons. There is a local school that would welcome a visit from you for a few days for a cultural exchange and basic teaching (subject to approval by the headmaster). A stay with us will be fully immersive and you will be required to do a bit of everything.
English and Nepali
We have a range of accommodation at our homestay cottages. Where you stay will depend on when you visit. ie during the low season we may be able to accommodate you in one of rooms but during the busy season you may have to stay in one of our tents. Depending on your length of stay you may need to move around a little.
Kathmandu has a wealth of fascinating cultural and religious sites. We encourage you to go and explore the City and were happy to offer advice. When you stay with us you will stay as "part of the family" and, when appropriate, you'll be included in our own visits and outings.
