Homestay in NepalIt's often said that travellers come to Nepal for its spectacular scenery but come back for its people. "The guest is God" is a popular saying here, and Nepalis consider it a huge honour to entertain guests in their homes. Himanshu Homestay offers a warm welcome in the heart of Kathmandu.

For a one-off, immersive experience a world away from trekking teahouses and the tourist traps of Thamel, share part of your holiday with a family who will host you and guide you in the discovery of Nepali rites, culture and beliefs.

Homestay in Nepal: what is it?

Homestays are similar to bed and breakfast accommodation. Guests are invited into a private home, sharing the family's mealtimes and also their smiles. Living with local people is the best way to learn about their culture and beliefs.

In our homestay, you will be welcomed as a family member. We will be pleased to greet you at the airport and bring you back to our house in Ichangu, near Radha Krishna Mandir, about four kilometres from central Thamel and bordering the glorious Raniban Forest ( Fresh air!).

Our newly built home in the traditional Newari style features the region's distinctive terracotta tiles and antique carved wood doors and windows. It has three guestrooms with en suites. Two of the guestrooms are in a separate building beside the main home. With a rooftop kitchen and open-air lounge area, this residence can be converted for use as stand-alone apartment. We also offer Nepali cooking classes.

Homestays allow you to experience real Nepal at affordable prices.

Please contact us if you would like more information.

Himanshu Homestay – Ichangu Narayan, Kathmandu, Nepal

Himanshu HomestayYour hosts are Rajan and Anshu. Rajan is tourism enterpreneur who believes in bringing positive changes to his country and Anshu is a homemaker. Their home is a suburban villa north-west of the Thamel area in Kathmandu valley; a series of airy, open-plan living spaces with marble floors, a roof terrace and modern furnishings. Near the Raniban Forest, the traditional Newari-style building has three guest bedrooms, each with a private en suite.

Rajan and Anshu share their home with their two young sons (aged seven and four), and Rajan's sister and mother ( they also have a dong, 2 cats). Anshu can teach and organise cookery demonstrations, Nepali language lessons, or a visit to the market. You can visit Kathmandu's UNESCO World Heritage sites led by award-winning guides, a day hike through the nearby jungle, take a yoga class, or teach in a local school (as a volunteer). Maybe you want to just relax in the garden while you organise your next trip in Nepal. (Rajan would be pleased to offer his expert guidance.)

Himanshu Homestay is in a peaceful area just outside Kathmandu's ring road and a world away from the city's noise and pollution. The bedrooms are ideal for singles, couples and families. Plan a visit before or after trekking in Nepal for home stay and Nepali cooking class experience.
