Theres no better way to get to know a country than by immersing yourself right into the heart of it, and this Local Living stay in Panauti will allow you to do just that. Make yourself at home in this farming village, steeped in culture and tradition. During your stay youll learn all about Nepalese customs and traditions, hearing stories that only locals can tell. Pick up ingredients from surrounding markets and enjoy Nepalese cooking demonstrations from your homestay hosts after working up your appetite by hiking though surrounding towns. Youll leave this village a different person than you arrived (and hopefully a better cook).
Arrive at any time.
Visit the G Adventures-supported Sisterhood of Survivors project and enjoy a dumpling-making lesson and local lunch. Travel through the scenic hills to Panauti and meet your hosts. Later, help your host family prepare a meal before sitting down together for an evening of delicious food and cultural exchange.
