Forget the 5 star hotels of Nepal, and look forward to lodging at the home of a typical Gurung family in the Sirubari Village, where a wonderful experience awaits you.
Rather than a “Know Nepal” trekking program, the Sirubari Village Homestay is more of a “Know the Nepali” trip.
Sirubari Village Homestay Trekking is part of a relatively new tourism trend wherein the foreigners seeking holiday vacations in Nepal are offered the extraordinary chance to live at the home of a typical Nepali person. Feels adventurous, doesn’t it?
Located southwest of Pokhara (a paradise like city of Nepal), Sirubari is a beautiful village of the Syangja district. It holds a Gurung settlement, and dwells at the altitude of about 1760 meters; hence, you need not fret about altitude sickness!
Moreover, just like the ever friendly and cheerful behavior of the inhabitants, the climate of this ethnic village too is nice and pleasant throughout the year. You can drop in here anytime you prefer.
In addition to the warm welcome and hospitality of the locals, the Sirubari village also offers grand views of the Himalayas, from the Mt Manaslu in the east to the Dhaulagiri range with Mt Macchapucchare and Annapurna range in between.
You must understand that Nepal’s beauty is not limited just to the glorious Himalayas and the world famous temples. There’s also the age-old cultures maintained by the traditional people, living off the clutches of modernism. Their cultures and way of life can only be expressed through personal interactions.
Sirubari Village Homestay Trekking program falls in the category of this new tourism scheme, which aims to give the tourists a close insight to the typical Nepali life. In fact, this particular homestay package has even won the PATA Gold Award for its outstanding cultural heritage in the early 2001 A.D.
Hence, forget the 5 star hotels of Nepal, and look forward to lodging at the home of a typical Gurung family in the Sirubari Village, where a wonderful experience awaits you.
