Solar back up power is provided for guests so you will always have a light and WIFI available even when Nepal's power cuts reach 18 hours! Guests can use the kitchen to store and make their own food when they wish and guests are welcome to join us in our family lounge room, but they also have access to their own private common lounge room on the second floor. We have a small shop available in the home so you can buy all your basic necessities right here at a very reasonable price, such as mineral water, recharge cards, toiletries, snacks, beer and Nepali raksi fresh from the village!
Nestled on the banks of the Seti River, our home is in the suburban village of Lamachaur, just 15 minutes from the bustling central marketplace in Pokhara. Our home has easy access to the popular resort town of Lakeside (25 minutes taxi ride away) as well as many hidden local attractions most tourists have never heard of. You can visit the Hemja Tibetan monastery to learn more about Buddhism which is just 20 minutes walk from our home. The Akala Devi Temple is only 12 minutes on foot and just 30 minutes walk away lies the Mahendra and Chamera Caves and, if you're feeling energetic, the temple sitting on top of Garmi Danda hill. The hot springs of Tato Pani are only 45 minutes bus ride away and just slightly further afield is the Gandaki Rainbow Trout Fish Farm - a popular meeting spot for Nepali people to fish for rainbow trout and enjoy a picnic in the foothills of the towering Himalayas.
The family asks that you respect their culture and customs by following some basic house rules which are standard for most families in Nepal:
• Respect local customs and speak Nepali to the best of your ability.
• Don't wear revealing clothes.
• Avoid public displays of affection
• Respect privacy. Ask before photographing people or religious sites. Don't enter houses uninvited.
• Discourage begging and encourage fair dealing.
Smokers are kindly asked only to smoke outside our home. Pets may be welcome - please ask us when you make your booking enquiry!

Gurung people are known for their generous hospitality and you will not need to lift a finger while you stay with our family. We have two different homestays near Pokhara where you can escape Nepal's tourist bubble. One is a unique rural homestay in a mountain village staying with Rabindra and "Ama". There you can sit around the fire drinking tea and rice wine, stargazing or sometimes dancing and drumming under a full moon... The other is a modern homestay in an undiscovered corner of Pokhara where the city becomes the countryside. Staying with Ama's children and grandchildren, you can wander through rice and veggie fields, walk over the river to the nearby Buddhist monastery or sit on the balcony with a view of the Himalayas and watch Nepali daily life happen by. Both are truly unique ways to experience our beautiful country. We can't wait to welcome you into our family.
