I had a really good stay. Saroj and his family are very nice people, and the city is amazing!

The home was a great experience. Saroj took me around Kathmandu to experience cultural and religious activities that you wouldn't be able to access on your own! I really got to connect to the local community and see what life was really like. I barely did any work on the farm - if you are looking for a true permaculture host, I would recommend some where else. If you want to really explore Kathmandu and have a great local to teach you things then I recommend staying here!

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.
