Homestay with Dharma & Ambika
The room is on the first floor of the house of Dharma and Ambika. The room is seperated from the other rooms and very basic. There are two beds inside that are a bit larger then a single bed, but smaller then a double bed.Guest Access
You can access nearly the whole house: ground floor is one big living area where they also cook (on wood). The toilet is outside. There is no shower or bathroom in the house: washing yourself or your clothes you can do at a watertap with cold water at +/- 100m from the house (not: it is an amazing experience to wash yourself with on the background a nice mountain view). In case you don`t like this, you can get a bucket and wash yourself in your room.Interaction with Guests
Dharma and Ambika will do anything to make you feel at home. If you have questions or requests, ask Dharma. His English is limited, but he will for sure be able to help you out! You live together with a Nepalese family, which means that there is not a lot of privacy. But this makes this experience even more interesting: you can see how they live and even help them with cooking or working on the land if you want. This stay includes the meals: you will eat together with the family, the typical Nepali food that they eat every day. This will be mainly vegetarian. You can get a cup of tea whenever you want.The Neighborhood
Thulo Parsel is a village located on the side of a mountain, at the beginning of the Himalaya mountains. It is a farmers village with a lot of green and nice panoramic views. Following activities in the village are possible: * volunteering a few days in the local school or hospital * going for a daywalk (we arrange a local guide for you - not included in the price of the room) to surrounding villages * making this homestay part of a larger trek with multiple different homestays (Thuloparsel can be the start or endpoint of this)Getting Around
There are two ways to get to Dharma`s and Ambika`s house: * The local bus: This is the common way to go to a local village. It costs about 500 roepies and takes you nearly a whole day (8h) to get there. The bus takes several stops, drives slowly and the roads are bumpy. But... this is a great way to start with your experience to live like the Nepalis and mingle with them. We can help you arrange your busticket and seat (only early birds have a seat!). * Privat transport: You can rent a motorcycle and drive yourself (only for experienced bikers, approx. 4-5h drive, make sure your travel insurance covers this!) or you can hire a jeep with a driver (approx. 4-5h drive - but expensive - if you want this, let us know, we can give you a quote)Other Things to Note
This homestay is perfect for adventuruous people with an open mind: * who want to experience life without modern technologie (no Wifi or internet) and `back to basics` in general (no electrical appliances, no bathroom) * who want to indulge themselves in the daily life of a Nepalese farmers family * who want to enjoy the relaxing and easy-going atmosphere of a Nepalese village * who don`t mind taking a cold `shower` at a public watertap with the bonus of a nice mountain view * who like to taste and eat like the locals - delicious food without meat or fish You live here really the Nepali way!
