6 day Local farming and Wild plants in Nepal (all year round, private groups only)


Nepal is known for its beautiful landscapes, trekking and much more. But the most interesting to us is the local lifestyle of the people high up in the mountains.

This 6 day adventure takes you to local communities of the tourist track. You will live like locals do and experience the traditional rural farming lifestyle.

Feeding animals, milking cows, picking wild edible plants, learning how to farm, how to make butter, ghee, yoghurt, alcohol, how to cook, and enjoy the most delicious organic food you have ever eaten. 

These communities are disappearing by the day, thats why we think some extra help will hopefully help them to support their day to day life.
