My time in Shiva’s home was memorable. The flexibility with the task was something that I really appreciate. This family was like my family for two weeks, I couldn’t be more grateful.

Shiva and his family are very nice. The food and the accommodation was great. We did two city tours of Kathmandu and one day hike with an amazing sunrise. We learn so much about Nepalese culture and visit beautiful places. Everybody was very welcoming with us during ours visit and in local transportation.
I'm hardly recommend this experience.

If you want to really get into the Nepali culture I highly recommend this volunteer opportunity. Despite only staying a few days because I ended up getting sick and had to move to another city, I learned a lot about the Nepali culture and felt very welcomed by Shiva and his family.

Thank you, Mr. Shiva, for my first experience as a worldpacker!) 🙏It was really adorable. You have a great family that was friendly and hospitable.

I will definitely come back to Nepal for tracking.
