Project Description

Dec 2018

Who

You want to see Nepal, where there are no tourists.

Why

You want a mountain homestay at 1000m elevation in rural Nepal, in a village that has no modern amenities (like Singapore) and no organised tourist groups. In fact, the first group of tourists were 6 Singaporeans lead by our company in Dec 2016.

You think that you could sleep on a mud floor separated by a straw mat in the village and this is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. You could also sleep in a shed that is beside a few cows!

You yearn to do mountain biking on tracks that had no foreign bikers (we saw none during all our trips) and you think that river crossing with your bike is awesome. You think that taking a sip of water from the same river is an experience that would delight you.

Where

The Gorkha district in Nepal is about 3610kmsq with a population of 288,134 (@2001) & that makes Singapore ~100x more densely populated in comparison. The rural village for our home stay only welcomed her 1st organized tourist group in Dec 2016. Stunning views of the mighty Manaslu (8163m), Himalchuli (7893m), Ganesh Himal II &III (7163&7110m) mountains are rewards on a clear day. There are no hot showers in the village in this hilly region where the temperature is ~10 Deg. C (Feb & Dec) @ 7~am. The locals’ mobile phones do work in this area.

Our itinerary, Event Form & 70sec video are below.
