Shiva and his family made us feel as welcome as it is rare to find today. We were able to feel immediately at ease and thus be able to fully enjoy this experience. Beyond the very good welcome, Shiva is an excellent guide who knows Kathmandu and the history of Nepal perfectly! Thanks to him, we leave with a head full of memories but especially full of history and culture about Nepal and its capital. I would like to thank him again for his kindness and we can't wait to come back to Nepal to see him and his family again.

Shiva is not only a great tour guide for a first experience in Nepal, but he is also an amazing host. His family is very sweet and welcoming, making us immediately feel at home. After traveling and volunteering for a few weeks accross the country, we were looking for a genuine and local experience in Kathmandu. Thanks to Shiva, we are going back home with a deep knowledge on the country and its culture but also with beautiful memories. 🙏🏼

I was in Nepal for 3 weeks. While there I stayed with Shiva’s family who were more than accommodating. All of the family members were kind, welcoming, and really added to the learning experience. I shared memorable encounters with each family member. I have nothing but good things to say about Shiva. He taught me so many things about his country and the culture. I enjoyed the endless tours we went on, he is extremely knowledgeable and goes above and beyond to ensure you feel welcome and comfortable. I left with a better understanding of local Nepali life as well as plenty of stories to share

I spent wonderful weeks in Shiva's family. If you want to laugh, share, discover Nepalese culture and above all, experience moments of happiness, this is where you have to go. Shiva is a warm, generous person who will be able to help you, accompany you and answer all your questions honestly. Always smiling, like his wife who will make you taste different nepalise food . His two boys are also adorable. You will have a thousand funny and interesting discussions with them! The family home is very close to Kathmandu,if you want to speak English, meditate, trek, this is the ideal place!

If you are looking to immerse yourself in the local culture and discover the places of this country, this is the place for you. You will live with a local family and their customs. You will have flexibility to travel, discover and have time to dedicate to photography and video.

Being with Himkala adventures for these two weeks has been an incredible experience. You will feel like one of the family. And besides, the food is fantastic, the mother is a great cook.
