Nepal is normally popular in the world for the adventure travel, white water rafting and great jungle safari, staying at the specially built resorts or the self pitched tents. A brand new concept of village tourism where the guests - you would be taken to unspoiled villages where you spend a few days living with the local people and being treated as honoured family guests. While staying in the villages, you enjoy comfortable accommodation, delicious local food and drink and a welcome that will remain a happy memory for a lifetime.
