Highlights

Overview

Nepal Environmental Treks & Expedition has always given importance to Agro Tourism with the aim of showcasing new areas and promoting and developing the life style and economy of indigenous people residing in rural areas, an area that most trekkers have to hike through on treks and expeditions. Nepal is an agricultural country where more than 70 % of its people survive and earn revenue from farming.

We believe that Nepal Agro Tourism allows visitors to meet with inhabitants of rural villages & traditional agricultural technique. These techniques dates back to many hundreds of years. You will be able to learn how food grains are harvested, sorted and preserved, how vegetables are grown organically, how freshly picked fruits are turned into delicious marmalades, goat milking, cheese making and preparation of local alcohol.

Nepal has plenty of natural resources, which makes agro-tourism more popular and fascinating for all visiting tourists. During the summer season you will be fascinated to see farmers involved in rice plantation. The techniques used for plantation and harvesting differs from one region to another. The laborious farmers turn their fields into an open theatre where they sing local songs and exchange funny remarks. In the winter season fields are adorned with wheat plants.

Rice, wheat and maize are the major crops of Nepal. Farming systems and crop production in Nepal varies across the different agricultural zones. Physically, the country is divided into four ecological strata: the southern terai plain, the southern mountain ranges, the central hill complex, and the northern great Himalayas. Rice-based cropping systems, with wheat or maize as a secondary crop, are predominant in the terai and middle hills, whereas in the high mountains, maize, millet, barley and buckwheat are cultivated. Tea, cardamom, ginger and coffee are the important cash crops of the middle hills. Likewise, wide ranges of temperate fruits in the high mountains, citrus in the middle hills while tropical/subtropical fruits are grown in the terai and middle hill valleys. Vegetable-growing in kitchen gardens is practiced at all elevations. In addition to this, livestock is an important component of the Nepalese farming system providing food for humans, manure for plants, and draft power for farms and cash income for farmers. Cattle like buffaloes, sheep, goats, pigs and poultry are the livestock species reared across different agricultural zones.

Agro tourism has various economic and socio cultural aims. The basis of the program is the revitalization of the countryside and reversal of urban trends. It brings tourists to the countryside instead of over populating cities. You can meet friendly and hard working people in rural areas, share a meal with them, stay at their houses as family guests, taste their local drinks and see them carry on with life graciously. In addition to this, the heartwarming hospitality is almost touching. And not to mention, you will also witness some of the most spectacular views of the mountain landscapes.

Our company truly shares its profits with the local community by selling specific packages to tourists seeking our services. The purpose of this profit sharing is to encourage and motivate them to convert their traditional agricultural skills into modern and more profitable techniques. In this context, we frequently conduct trainings and workshops to educate and empower the local community and be a part of their development process.
