    In June and July we are looking the volunteer who have skill of Painter.

    Namaste. We are a family of five and we live just above Begnas Lake, not far from Pokhara. We welcome you to our property which is situated on a ridge overlooking two beautiful lakes with the Himalayas in the background. We wish to promote eco-tourism on our land as we run a small homestay with 4 bedrooms for guests. We are looking for wonderful volunteers who can help us with tending to our land and helping with daily chores around the house such as: tending the field, gardening, cleaning , weeding, painting, promoting in social media and maybe some light building work. We can't provide you for a longer period, it is only shorter period, just for a week.
    We especially would enjoy experienced energetic volunteers who may have some knowledge of: Agriculture, sustainability, tourism, social media, marketing and promotion, blog writing, photography , business experience and as well as environmentalist and Engineer. If you have these experience you will be a wonderful fit! . We don't have enough space for two people, we request you to apply if you are individual and easy going person.
    We have much to offer to volunteers in the local community. Nearby we have Vipassana meditation centers, much hiking as well as boating and fishing on the lake. The town is three kilometers away with easy transportation to the Homestay. Here you can enjoy the peace and quiet in our natural environment and live like a local.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    You will be part of a typical Nepali family, you can learn typical cooking, organic gardening, Nepali language and our way of life. We are sure that you can teach us some new things as well. We can also introduce to you a traditional way of farming and roasting coffee beans.

  • Help


    The workload of our new projects continues to grow and the work around the property is too much to handle by ourselves. We are looking for kind souls that would like to help us with gardening, cleaning, weeding, working in vegetable field as well as helping to promote the homestay business. Any volunteers who have social media experience would be great. Our volunteers will have plenty of time and freedom to explore the surrounding area of our wonderful community.

    The accommodation is a simple bedroom located in a traditionally constructed building which is separate from the main family house so you will have complete privacy. The room is shown in the photos above and benefits from stunning views down to Begnas lake and the Annapurna Himalaya range in the background. There is electricity in the bedroom to charge mobile phones and suggested to bring touch light to go to bathroom. The basic toilet and shower building is next door. The bedroom has a single bed. If you are luck sometime we provide guest room, if it is free.

    If you need to buy anything during your stay there are small shops 10min walk away or you could walk a nice trail down to Begnas Lake, roughly 30min, where you will get anything you might need.

    You will be requested to work 3 hours in a day anytime we need help and 15 hours in a week and you will be provided holiday on arrival day and the last day of the week and in return you will receive only free room and drinking water and for food either you manage yourself or we will provide meels in very cheap price, three meals just for 5 dollar, breakfast, lunch and dinner .
