Nepal Environmental Trekking has been operating village tours since the very beginning. We believe that village tourism offers a unique opportunity for comfortable cultural immersion. You travel to places where the way of life is still traditional.
Our company works with village members to accommodate and entertain guests. Rooms in local houses are fitted with bathrooms, host families are trained to prepare meals hygienically, and a guide accompanies the guests to interpret. Villages tend to be located a couple of hours' walk from the nearest road - close enough to be easily accessible for less-than-fit visitors, yet far enough to be culturally intact and shielded from outside influences.
We take our guests to unspoilt villages where they spend a few days living with the local people and being treated as honored family guests. Each village is connected with another. Most villages are characterized by a multiplicity of economic, caste, kinship, occupational, and even religious groups linked vertically within each settlement. While staying in the villages, guests enjoy comfortable accommodation, delicious local food and drink and a welcome that will remain a happy memory for a lifetime. While they are with us our guests can rest assured that they are always in a secure and safe environment.
Local attractions, both scenic and cultural, are shown to our guests by our well trained ethnic guides who always do their utmost to make the guest’s stay a memorable experience. Many of our villages are close to unspoilt natural areas where wildlife are in its pristine form. This can be a feature of our packages for special interest groups.
The traditional culture and lifestyle of the different ethnic groups is a highlight of all of our village visits. These warm and friendly people are always ready to perform their music and dance and to give an insight into their rituals and tradition. Tourists can also buy local handicrafts which are put on display.
Village tours aims to make direct financial contribution to the villagers, especially women, so as to help the local economy. Besides we also allocate 10 % of our net profit for promoting education, awareness and environment at local level.
