The Experience

We plan to construct wooden houses which are safe from the earth quake. The interested volunteers can support us with skilled as well as unskilled manpower. We have started bee farming last year. The volunteers can help us build bee houses, take care of the bees, honey hunting and protect the bee houses. This work will take about 5 hours a day for 5 days.

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.

My experience at Kamal's place has been great! I felt welcomed from the very first moment and It was a wonderful and enriching experience to share those days with his beautiful family! The accomodation is just perfect, the landscape you can enjoy is simply awesome and the food healthy and delicious. I would recommend this place to everybody who wants to recharge the batteries and taste the real lifestyle and culture of the mountain life in this area!
