Nepal Off The Beaten Track

Gurung and Tharu Village Home Stays - Off The Beaten Track Trekking - Authentic Cultural Experiences

As the title suggests, an off the beaten track tour of Nepal featuring home stays. Designed for travellers who truly wish to immerse themselves fully into the rural village culture of Nepal and enjoy real cultural experiences in Nepal. This naturally requires physical effort (otherwise everyone would be doing it) and thus there are three days of trekking involved where you'll be walking for around 8 hours a day, with sometimes up to 1200m ascent and descent. However, this is how you will experience the real life of the Gurung hill villages and to further enhance the authentic nature of this holiday you'll stay with local Nepalese people too. No creature comforts or touristy frills. You will live how they do, eat what they eat and do what they do. It's also a rather unusual  trekking route in Nepal too. Contrasting with your experiences in the hill villages you then journey down to the Chitwan area to stay with a Nepalese family in their Tharu tribal home too. Nights in hotels are intentionally kept to a minimum to preserve the essence of this trip, although to break up the 'roughing it with the locals' a couple of nights are spent in comfortable accommodations that nonetheless still pay homage to Nepal's heritage. You'll need a 3 season sleeping bag for this holiday. If you don't have a sleeping bag we can arrange sleeping bag rental for you.
