Farming plays a vital role in Nepalese everyday life because majority of the population is dependent on farming. Farm life in Nepal is very simple and almost self-sustainable. Cows are manually miked, traditional tools and techniques are used to carry on the daily chores at the farms, meals are prepared over the fire, seasonal organic vegetables are used, extra farm goods are sold in the market to create some income, local herbs are used as medicine, cultural ceremonies still exist and the community plays a vital role.
Oneals Backpackers Adventure is fortunate to have an incredible family farm stay/home stay experience available in picturesque Far East Nepal in Ilam. East Nepal is known for its unique culture, big hospitality, rolling tea hills and the world’s 3rd highest mountain Kanchenjunga.
If you are really interested to see the real side of Nepali culture, farm life and give a hand on everyday farm activities like milking cows, cutting grass, feeding the cows and goats, learn about tea farming or to relax with never ending cups of tea, this is the right way to spend your Nepal vacation. If you want to share your knowledge or help teaching English in a nearby school, Oneals Backpackers Adventure will be more than happy to arrange this for you.
You can stay as long as you want with the family at the farmhouse for a cultural exchange as it is neither a tour nor an itinerary. You could combine this stay with a camping trip to Sandhapu to explore even more Nepali villages, their unique culture and more hidden gems around East Nepal. This is not the typical vacation as not many travelers have visited this part of Nepal, but you will never forget this journey.
