I really enjoyed staying with Shiva and his family, it was a really wonderful experience and it really felt like a home. Had sooo much time to explore the local area and they live in a really beautiful local community in the heart of Kathmandu. It’s so beautiful being surrounded by the Himalayas. I would really recommend this stay, everyone was so welcoming.

I spend two very nice weeks with Shiva and his family who welcome me in their local house, as the best it was !😊
His wife, Sharmila, was a very good cooker. I learnt a lot about the Nepali cook. His children were also very kind with me. I will miss them all !

Alongside the Free walking tours organized by Shiva in Kathmandu, I discovered also about the culture outside, the different religions existing in the capital, the meditatio. It was very interested, and I recommend you all this experience if you want to live as as local with a sweet family.

Thank you Shiva, and I hope see you soon 🙏🏻

Being here in Shiva's House is really cozy you have you propper room. I was warmly welcomed by Shiva and the rest of the family. The atmosphere was friendly and laid-back, making me feel right at home from day one !! I went to few tours with shiva and it was a really great experience and your tasks are not really difficult if you know to do video editing. The accommodation provided was comfortable and clean, and the meals were delicious! I really appreciated the effort Sarmila put into ensuring that volunteers had everything they need.
Really peaceful, I will never forget this experience!!

Such a great experience. I came as a volunteer I am leaving as a member of the family. Everyone was so wonderful, I am missing already all the great conversation with Sabinaya , playing with Siddharta , the great cooking of Sharmila...the knowledge of Shiva, he will take you to Kathmandu where the tourists don't go. You are going to live in a nice clean house in a quiet neighborhood, on the 1 st floor there are 2 private bedrooms for the volunteers and a bathroom. The family live on the 2nd floor. It is easy to go to Thamel by bus 30 mn. You will have plenty of free time.

Sylvie stayed two weeks with us. She is an extraordinary person with greatunderstanding and rationality. She is calm, easygoing, and importantly very helpful. She has creativity, dedication and patience for making better work. That’s why she is rare, different and people hardly can find such volunteer. She has become like our family member. We shared happiness, reality, and knowing each other who we are. She managed my weaker parts of social media, profiles, and helped a lot for finding right way for upcoming tasks. We don’t have a word to express our gratefulness. Hope to meet you again and again. Thank you so much Sylvie for everything. With respect 🙏
