The Experience

we are starting a special mushroom farming. This is special in the sense that mushroom can be grown in a log of wood. The mushroom is called 'shiitake mushroom' . We have a plan to start it in 2500 logs. Anyone interested can help us to drill the log, sow the mushroom seed, water the seeds as well as take care of the mushroom farming. Likewise we also have a plan to begin bee farming. We practice organic farming no chemical fertilizers.

The Love received by Kamal and his family was wonderful from day One. The landscapes, food and people are amazing. It's a little complicated to get to the farm but it really is worth it... maybe there was not so much work for the time, but you can take that time walking around the mountains and helping in whatever you can... was an unforgettable experience and I hope to see then again soon. Thank you, Kamal and family!!

We ended up staying more time than planned and honnestly we could live here for a long, long time. Kamal and his family are the most amazing and humble people I've met, they give you nothing but love from the very first moment. His wife and mom cook the best vegetarian meals and his kids bring so much joy and fun to the environment! We can only say thank you for this amazing experience and recommend Mount Mahabarat to everyone considering coming to Nepal, especially if you want to be in a very silent and calm area. I really hope to be able to come back in the future!

Thanks Kamal and his family for hosting me for 6 days. It was a great experience! I absolutely loved the scenery around the village.
Since it was summer, there was not much work to do, so I have time to explore mountains by myself. Neighbours are very friendly as well.
Oh, bu the way Kamal's wife Goma cooks really delicious food, and I absolutely loved their homemade pitta-bread

Kamal is an amazing host and has a huge heart! During my stay, the job was essencially help in the mustard harvesting, in the kitchen and to build the new wet sauna. I've got a flu on the last days and couldn't help more, but his family and the other volunteers were very comprehensive and kind to me, as a big family! The food was always so fresh, from farm to table! His mother and his wife, Goma, did everything to please me despite my food restrictions: no rice to me, a BIG issue in Asia! Thank you so much, Kamal and family, for such an welcoming stay on Mount Mahabharat!

El lugar es muy bello, en medio de la montaña viviendo con una familia nepali y otros compañeros que hacen pasar una linda estancia. Le pongo 4 estrellas porque antes de ir uno lee que es un centro de meditación, yoga y no lo es, si uno quiere puede practicar allí lo que desee, ya que posee el tiempo para hacerlo, pero no hay ningun profesor que enseñe o acompañe.
La familia es muy amorosa. La ayuda que brindamos fue recoger mostaza de las terrazas de cultivo donde la vista es increible, ayudamos a comenzar a construir una casa. Recomiendo el lugar a futuros viajeros.
