Village Hiking and Home Stay- 7 Days

Village Hiking and Home Stay- 7 Days

    Village Hiking and Home Stay in Nepal might be one of the best surprises you have been searching for. All Nepal Hiking has explored some rare hiking routes around the middle and western parts of Nepal. Our Chairman has discovered some hidden villages with lots of tourist potential. Our homestay program offers a golden chance for those seeking to pay time with native folks who suffer from them. The most effective part of a homestay tour is to be told the culture of assorted ethnic people by interacting with them. Walking and viewing the snow-capped mountain is not the only option in Nepal. Being in the deep village a bit away from tourist trails in rural areas, you will feel the differences. Every Village Hiking and Home Stay has its way of beauty and culture; their everyday lifestyle is based on community living. You would certainly enjoy listening to the micro-stories of the village and people. We can do it by two options: Option I: we can take a fully tented camp with our gear and supply, Option II: we can have food with a local family, and we can tent in the courtyard or school’s playground Option II: we can eat and sleep there with local family (they don’t mind)


    We’ll pick you up from your hotel in Kathmandu to Machhapokhari, Dhading Arught Bus station. We drive via Prithvi Highway to Malekhu. Drive to Malekhu, with great views, will be a memorable journey with terraces of farming fields, greenery, and urban settlements. Views of the Himalayas, Ganesh Himal, and Manaslu can be seen. Aarughat is on the banks of the Budhi Gandaki River, and Aarughat is the starting point of Manasulu treks. Aarughat is also a popular marketplace for people inhabiting the Northern side of Gorkha and Dhading districts? Overnight in Hotel. FB


      Today we take the northern direction along the Budhi Gandaki River to Siureni. The trail appears great, with river sounds and Siringi Himal in the front. The village's rice-paddy fields and fruit garden make the hike more enjoyable. We cross two small rivers and hike to Budhathum. We continue hiking up to Dandagaun. Fantastic sunset views over the terraced field can be seen till miles away—local cultural programs in the evening on request. The black-smith workshops, still run by specific so-called lower cast, would be engaging. There are schools and small health posts with rudimentary facilities. There is also a small health post operated by locals and built with financial support by Sita Gurung, a well-known singer from Baseri village. The health post got technical support from the well-wisher of USA. Overnight at local house. FB

        Danda Gaun is a big village of the Baseri Village Development Committee. We trek north to Mangsire, Aarbote and Bhaise. There are similar-looking houses and almost identical crops on the field. The majority of people belong to the Tamang and Gurung ethnicity. We reach a viewpoint called Thamrang, from where you can see great views of Manaslu, Buddha Himal, Siringi Himal, Ganesh Himal, and many hills on the south and west. BATTLE, a beautiful Village surrounded by Jungle, can be seen from this viewpoint. Overnight in Pattle at local house. FB.


          Early morning village tour - we visit the local spiritual site of Meghdutthan. It’s a huge rock and at the bottom a tiny temple, and of course with magnificent views of Mt. Manaslu and other mountains. The same day we hike to Syamchet - another beautiful village through the goat sheds and nature. Overnight at a local house. FB


            Today we walk through the lower route of Manbu to Baseri via village and rice paddy fields, rocks garden, health post, and schools. There are extensive terraces of paddy fields, temples, and springs in Baseri. Farming is the backbone of the local economy, and the people are from diverse ethnicities. Overnight at a local guesthouse. FB


              A 45 mins walk down Budhi Gandaki. Aarkhet Bazaar lies on the banks Budhigandaki River. Catch a Bus to the historic city of Gorkha, a 5 hrs drive. Gorkha is the origin place of the Shah Dynasty, which ruled Nepal for 250 years before Nepal became a republic in 2006. Visit the museum, KALI Temple, and the Gorkha Durbar Palace.


                Today we drive back to Kathmandu, about 5 hrs drive along the Marsyandi and Trisuli rivers. While getting back to Kathmandu, visit the Manakamana TempIe if interested. An adventurous journey on the cable car takes you back to the Manakamana temple. From the highway, we catch a bus to Kathmandu.
