What a wonderful apartment to arrive to in kathmandu for the first time! Less than 10 min walk from Thamel and away from all the hustle and bustle (comparative to the rest of kathmandu). This home away from home is perfect for anyone wanting to come and go or even spend your day reading on the outdoor area. Starting our day with cup of tea on the outdoor sitting area where you get to see kathmandu come to life is an experience in itself. You just want to sit back relax and take it all in. Kopali and Rabi the two host are more than welcoming and are enthusiastic to help your stay be enjoyable. If your looking at Trekking (Everest base camp) like we were then this is the right place. Rabi has been in the trekking industry for more than 20years and has a small company which can help you with any planning you may need. I hope to be able to stay here again one day as it truly was such an amazing experience for us. Thanks again Kopali and Rabi, much love. Grayson

community based eco friendly homestay in Kathmandu

Homestay & Nepali cooking class

Homestay is best way to learn cooking Nepalese food as well. Nepalese cuisine is simply known as 'Dal Bhat' (lentil soup ad steam rice). However it is combination of variety of vegetable curries, pickle, soup (beans or lentil) with steam rice. Still more than 70 % of people grow their own rice, lentils, spices and vegetables and eat organic 'Dal Bhat'. At our homestay cooking class, we present Nepalese cuisine as in old days seasoned with traditional Ayurvedic Himalayan herbs. This is like private cooking class with complete knowledge of spices and an experience of being with Nepalese family.
