Pokhara, the second largest city of Nepal, is where trekkers come to see Annapurna Himal and Machapuchare Himal. Many tourists visit Pokhara to see the mountains but at the same time many peoples’ actual lives are in the mountains, on rice terraces at over 1500 meters high. Nepalese from villages have left their homes to cities or even overseas to seek jobs. But still, agriculture is the key industry of the country.
People in the village have preserved their traditional culture on the marvelous rice terraces. If you visit the villages, it would be a great chance to experience their lives. It would also provide financial support and motivates village people to keep their cultural identities. We invite you to this meaningful homestay hike. Come and discover the real village life and share your culture.
