My stay at Shiva's house was quite and pleasant. His house is in a suburb of Katmandu and you can easily get to it with the local bus or with a motorcycle (InDrive app). He arranged for me a private room, hot healthy meals, drinkable water and hot tea. It was really nice to get to know Nepali culture so deeply and Shiva is an amazing thoughtful person. The volunteer part consist just in taking some photos, videos and making some good reviews about his walking tour of Katmandu and his trekking tour agency (both worth it,as I say Shiva is an expert of his culture and a good company). Namaste🙏🏼

We really recommend this volunteering. Shiva, his wife Sharmila and his 2 sons: Sabinaya and Siddartha, all are lovely and they have treated us like a family. Thanks for the amazing Nepali food that you prepared for us and thanks for sharing all your culture and traditions. We had the chance to enjoy Siddartha's 6th birthday and it was so cute with all the family!! Also Shiva's free tours in Kathmandu are unique. We could see the incredible guide he is as he really enjoys showing and sharing the Nepali culture. Thanks again for everything, we hope to meet again very soon 🙏

Noemi and I stayed at Shiva and his lovely family's house for a week. He has a lot to share. Thank you again for the meditation introduction, it was very interesting. We really enjoyed Shiva's talks and the free tour; all the delicious food cooked by his wife Sharmila, the chats with his oldest son Sabinaya, the games with his youngest son Siddhartha and the warm company of his parents. Very recommendable!

I feel incredibly lucky to have spent two weeks with this beautiful family. From the moment I arrived, I felt at home. Shiva and his family are so welcoming and flexible. They truly became a second family to me. Being my first time in Asia, I was pleased to feel at home right away. The food was insanely delicious, and it was amazing to see how it was cooked. The children were so much fun, and I couldn't recommend this experience enough. They took great care of me, and I learned so much from Shiva. Also, don't miss the chance to visit their incredible school. Thank you, my Nepalese family.

My experience with shivas family was literally incredible, the day I got their place they made me feel so welcome, as if I'm a part of their family. I stayed for one month & fell deeply in love with nepal . The “work” is very easy & you need to throw yourself out there to actually get work. I've loved every single minute staying with them & really feel in love with the whole family. I would recommend this experience to anyone who wants to see the real nepali life & get to know the culture on a deep level. I had great spiritual talks with shiva which I loved too! Hope to see you again someday
