I had a great time on the home. Saroj was very welcoming and the food was amazing. I had lots of time to explore and meet other travelers, and will never forget the trip!

This place was just amazing. The family is really so kind and I made a good friends. I was not expecting to feel so at home and comfortable but I really feel at home. They are very flexible and understanding. I would highly recommend staying at the farm. You will have a great experience and make good memories. I would definitely recommend this place to others on my trip and possibly visit there again in the future.

Such an amazing experience staying at the home! You get to experience Kathmandu with locals that can show you things you probably wouldn't have experience otherwise! The family is super nice, Saroj will answer all you questions and mama cooks the most delicious food😊The work load is very light and flexible. It is nice getting in touch with nature and animals while being close to the hustle and bustle of Kathmandu🌞 definitely join the local yoga classes down the street! We were also introduced to a free singing bowl meditation session in Thamel, that is also worth experiencing😌

I stayed at the home for 15 days and I truly enjoyed. Saroj and his family are incredibly welcoming. The homemade food is amazing and Mama cooks with lots of love for everyone in the house. I got the experience to try but also make some Nepali food like Momos. I had a shared room with other volunteers that despite it was winter looks of blankets provided to make it warm and suitable for us.They also offered free laundry service which it's extremely convenient. On Mondays you get to go to a temple where is good music and super tasty food. Give it a try to the free yoga lessons. 100%recom

Saroj and his family were very friendly and welcoming. Projects vary depending on what is needed (during my time, I got to help build/expand the animal shed and lay concrete!) It was great connecting with the group of other travelers, too. We had lots of free time, and plenty to do in the area, including the free yoga class up the road. The farm is close to Monkey temple, and the touristy area of Thamel is a short ride or ~45 minute walk away. It's a great way to see Kathmandu while being a little way out of the bustling city! PS: if you come in the winter, pack a jacket for chilly evenings!
