Staying with Saroj's family was an amazing experience. I was expecting to be alone but when I first arrived there was 6 other volunteers from all around the world. In my week here I continued to meet 2 additional volunteers and it was an amazing experience! The other volunteers make this experience so wonderful. There is so much free time to explore the city and we are only working for 1 hour per day. Mama is so welcoming and friendly and the house feels like a home. Would definitely recommend ❤️

I really enjoyed my stay on the home. I had a huge room with a desk and WiFi, so I could also do my online work in the evenings. Mama cooked 3 delicious meals every day. I did some simple jobs such as harvesting garlic, potatoes, coffee beans and wheat. Saroj was also kind enough to invite me to a family wedding, they dressed me up in a traditional Sari. They also have 5 very cute dogs. I would definitely recommend staying at the farm. I also booked an EBC trek with Saroj, but unfortunately I would not recommend him as a guide as he doesn't have enough experience to safely guide people.

The family was very kind to us. I got stuck at the airport and Saroj came to pick me up when I couldn't call anyone or get a ride. I had a good stay and the food was really good

Saroj is a really nice guy and always take care of the volunteers ! We went to a ceremony together it was really nice. Accommodation is correct a bit chilly during the night but it's alright. The life in the farm is really chill as the schedules so you will have time to discover KTM. Thanks again Saroj and all your family also ! All the best !
