  • Description

    Description

    We are a young, friendly family and our house is located in the quiet and cozy area of Swayambhu. We live 5 minutes from the Monkey temple, one of the most famous and popular tourist attractions in town. I am Nischal and I live with my father Sundar, my mother Sita and my younger sister Prakriti. We all live together in a lovely house, working and managing our shop and garden. We live in a less polluted area of Kathmandu, ideal for those people looking for a nice and quiet place a little bit out from the busy city center. We are just 30 minutes by foot from Thamel and from our place you can easily catch any buses heading all around Kathmandu, Nepal (Pokhara, Chitwan...) and India. I also have a guitar/ukulele that I would love to share.

    Swayambhu is surrounded by nice hills where it is possible to go hiking with us, and our relatives and friends. Nearby, you can also visit White Gumba and a few ancient monasteries. We will be more than happy to show you around and advise you on any questions you may have.
    We are very easy-going and friendly people. We are looking for volunteers who are interested in learning things based on the Nepali culture, such as: our way of living, our language and our habits. A little help (tasks like gardening/farming, cooking, cleaning) from our volunteers would be highly appreciated (nothing too complicated though).
