The SpaceFar from the noisy rhymes of human inventions and exaggereted civilization of urban life, we live under the shade of misty clouds, glittering mountains, chirping birds, and dazzling butterflies. It would be a place to visit for an artist, musician, writer, cinematographer and any peace loving individual with own village tastes. It would be a good switch for anyone living with electricity, 'cause you know to change your appreciation of habits with loadshedding routines and get used to with solar powered lighting systems. You can choose to live in any part of our house or choose to camp far from the main building. Or choose to live in one of our neighbour's house. Just make sure you don't hate your options, cause this is no urban legend with fully equipped modern house. We have our own pets. Buffaloes (don't say them cows), goats and hens. They play around and you may join them. But I know you don't like playing with them: you just want to take photos. However they don't mind you. We have rooms with village style beds, low beds, palangs and some are furnished with carpets. All are floored with Nepali mats/carpets which were hand-made. The kitchen is also fun to watch. One room is traditional, economic and minimal cooking house where we depend on firewood. Another is huge and full of activity. Our tea is special, organic and to your new taste. Guest AccessYou can move around in the balcony, roof-top restaurant, sit in the lobby, be in the pethouse, see around the traditional meuseums. You can try on different outfits and choose to click photos with various parts of the traditional house. We neighbour our village school where you may play with school kids and provide your substantial gift of knowledge and skills for their future. Interaction with GuestsWe try to help you in all sort of matters regarding short visits around Pokhara or being informative ideas regarding Nepal, its customs and traditions. Our family is our village. We are from same line -- Adhikari. It is so called Adhikari village. We love to talk with you about your lifestyles, passions and your adventure emotions. We will in turn talk about our Nepali life, the tools of farm, art and craft. The mythology of our ancient lords. The epics of meditation, yoga and Hindu rituals. The power of music in relation to different spirits. The NeighborhoodExotic view of paddy, millet,mustard, maize farming. You can see more than 25 villages from its hilltop view. Getting AroundNo need of transit fee of AcAP to be here. Other Things to NoteWe live a Nepalese life. It is no wonder that the hike uphill will surprise you with village farming, cattle farms, muddy fields and robust carriages(doko). Wonder will move you. Just be careful on the stones you tread on, so that you won't get tricked. You can find bikes to come here. You can choose to do Mardi trek, ABC trek, Panchase trek, Dhampus treks, Lwang Ghalel treks and adventures etc from here. You might get lucky to see locals playing old games like dandi biyos (Game of long stick and short stick), Bow-arrow, Volleyball and Football. However be sure to gather required gears like waterproof jackets and sport shoes. Don't trust internet for it may go down. Few groceries are here for sweets, biscuits, water and tea. But buying clothes and ornaments won't be easy around.

The SpaceAlthough some foreign travellers hear about Panchase, most take the bus directly to the top of the mountain and bypass dozens of spectacular villages dotted along the way. Staying at Dar Kumari’s homestay you will be one of the few travellers to reach beyond the Pokhara tourist bubble and connect with the generous, vibrant and earthly Gurung people as you are welcomed into their community at the foothills of the Himalaya. Dar Kumari’s family have two rooms with three beds available in each private, upstairs bedroom of their two story traditional mudhouse. As the village is relatively untouched by tourism, there are no restaurants or shops nearby. However all meals are included in the cost of the room and Dar Kumari will serve you more food than most people are ever able to eat! Most of what you will find on your plate has come from within 300 metres of their house and the rice from the area is reputed to be some of the best in Nepal. We can accommodate up to six persons as we have two private rooms available with three beds in each. For more than three people, please visit our second listing here: https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/2554916?s=Viy5 Guest AccessThere is a clean, porcelain squat toilet and separate washroom next to the house and an ample water source in the family’s courtyard. People in the villages don’t use hot water for anything other than cooking, but if you really feel that you need some hot water for washing, please let the family know the day before or in the morning, and they will be happy to boil some for you. Dar Kumari has opened her home to more than 40 foreign travellers, some staying one night, others staying for up to three months. With a curiosity of other cultures and a passion for sharing her own, Dar Kumari understands the requirements of foreigners and provides ample blankets, bed sheets, towels, food and clean, boiled drinking water so you have everything you need to enjoy your stay. There are a few waterholes where you can go swimming or fishing with villagers in the local river. There is a local school just outside of the village, but please keep in mind that this is a place of learning and that visitors can cause a lot of excitement and therefore distraction. Please only visit the school if you were invited by a local villager or by one of the teachers. You might wish to join the locals in their daily activities. You can learn to make honey, brew the local alcohol ‘raksi’, see how people spend their days working the fields or around the house, or you can simply relax and enjoy the views over the Annapurnas. Either way, this can be a great opportunity to learn about different ways of living or simply recharge your batteries and connect with nature. Interaction with GuestsGurung people are known for their generous hospitality and you will not need to lift a finger while you are here. Only one member in the family speaks English, Rabindra, but his mother, Dar Kumari, has developed a unique sign language to use with foreigners so you’ll somehow find yourselves able to communicate even when Rabindra is not around. Nights might be spent chatting (ie playing charades!) around the fire, drinking tea and rice wine, stargazing or sometimes dancing, singing and drumming under a full moon. The NeighborhoodDar Kumari’s Homestay is nestled on the side of a mountain considered sacred to many Nepalese, yet they’ve somehow kept this gem hidden from the mainstream tourist and trekking community. With twin Buddhist and Hindu temples on the peak and a spectacular view of the Annapurna range, Panchase mountain attracts spiritual pilgrims and, once a year, party revellers for the annual Gurung picnic festival. Getting AroundTransport to Damdame depends on the time of year, how much rain has fallen and how energetic you’re feeling. In the dry season, you can take a bus directly to Damdame from Hallan Chowk in Lakeside, Pokhara. There is only one bus per day leaving at 2.30pm, but we suggest getting there at least an hour before if you want to secure a seat. The bus can be bumpy, hot, crowded and uncomfortable for tall people, so if you prefer, you can rent a jeep and a driver who will be able to take you to Damdame from any guesthouse or travel agent in Pokhara. If you feel like doing some trekking, you can take a taxi or any bus from Hallan Chowk to Ghatchhina throughout the day and make the 1-2 hour trek up the hill from Ghatchhina to Damdame. During the monsoon, you can take the same bus from Hallan Chowk or a jeep, as far as the river in Thulaket and then you will need to walk the rest of the way. It takes 2 – 3 hours to get to Damdame from the bus stop on foot, depending on the weather and how fast you walk. While it is possible to get directly to Damdame at time, we recommend to take minimum luggage as life in unpredictable in the Himalayas and you may end up hiking a part of the journey. It is best to leave your suitcase at you guest house in Pokhara, and bring only what you can carry yourself. Other Things to NoteThis is an authentic experience living amongst the Gurung people of Nepal who are all trilingual in Nepali, Gurung and Hindi but speak very little English. There is phone reception in the village and you may pick up a weak 2G signal. The village was relatively cut off until recently with electricity only connected in November 2012 and the road constructed in 2010. Staying with the family requires an open mind and a sense of adventure but it will probably be the most unique and magical experience of your time in Nepal. The family asks that you respect their culture and customs by following some basic house rules which are standard for most families in Nepal. Communication about bookings and transport will all go via Dar Kumari’s son, Rabindra, so there may be one or a couple of days delay in responding to enquiries. Electricity supply is also restricted in Nepal and phone network can be moody so the turn around time for bookings may be longer than usual for Air BnB. Please be patient, when you arrive we think you will agree it was worth the wait!

The journey begins with one step - one act - one decision that can lead you to a more fulfilling lifestyle of self sufficiency, control the elements,control over the foods you eat, and the overall quality of life that you live. Visit Adam Tribe Mountain Inn Farm in foot of the Himalayas to get the ideas of starting an off grid farm. -------------------- Description: The magical Himalayan view of Annapurna seen from the mountain-inn is a picture for Yantra meditation. The climb is a pilgrimage to the grassland from where Annapurna massive range is seen, completely alone without neighbors. The mountain inn is 20km away from the center of Pokhara at 1800m. Adam Tribe Mountain Inn is the travel package. The mountain inn is 20 km away from center of Pokhara and located on top of the mountain hill far from social life. It is required 1 hr bus/jeep ride and 3 hrs hiking. If you choose our comfort transport (4by4 Jeep) then you need only 1 hour hike in the forest and if you choose public local bus then it is required 3-3:30 hrs hike. Services: We provide you accommodation, transport, tour guide and special food. Extra Offers: We also offer farm training, survival training, night walk, forest camp and Yoga. The packages will be activate after making an inquiry. The Space: 3 Rooms/4 Beds/1 Big Tent suitable for 12 people in one group. General Information: A view of the Annapurna mountain-massif, a divine Feminine symbol from prehistory, is at the front entrance to the Mountain Inn. This tiny patch of grassland is surrounded by forest, from here we can see Daulagiri, Annapurna and Manasalu, all divine Feminine mountains with living pilgrimage traditions. Here, nature experience has a tradition of yoga practices in pilgrimage. The nature experience of the Mountain Inn carries with it an entrance to these Himalayan secrets. There is no kitchen in the rooms and breakfast is served. For lunch and dinner or anything else, an order can be given to the kitchen. As this room is a two hour forest walk down the mountain to the nearest biscuit shop, consider carefully what to bring. Daily 10-15 minute hot showers, but bring your own towel. The kitchen is of the Adam Tribe Organic Farm. The buffalo and chickens provide fertilizer for the fields and the daily cheese making. This is a restaurant and not in the village style of cooking. From Pokhara Lakeside the one hour bus ride follows the lake valley floor until Ghaticheena. These hourly buses will also bring you back to Lakeside from Ghaticheena. From Ghaticheena it is a one hour climb to Makanpur village, then another one hour climb to the Mountain Inn, the only inhabitant of Pakhure. For private transport we can arrange a group van to and from Kathmandu or Pokhara. The climb from Makanpur to the Mountain-Inn is through dense forest. Unless you are at home in the outdoors, we suggest you hire a guide. Anyone can do this climb, the village people use it daily, because the dense forest is above the Mountain-Inn. - Artificial food and drinks, simple life, clean, nature, mountain, hike, spring water, fire, sun, rain, river, source, forest, Sky, stars, green, peace, love, birds, man power, tradition, animals, plants, stones, insects, rustic house, life, no pollution, purity, sound of forest, no politics, hardcore life style, off grid life, insane, stairs, trail, The Adam Tribe is located on top of the mountain hill after last village called Makanpur. There are no skills required for getting to Adam Tribe but you need to hike for 3 hours which every one can do. So the guests will access to the Himalayan views, fresh spring water, forest-sounds and organic food at the Adam Tribe Mountain Inn. A visit to Mountain-Inn is for the unique Himalayan nature experience of vastness and beauty. Completely surrounded by forest, but just above the forest on a grassland crest, Mountain-Mother Annapurna is seen. This view is described in Mandala 5 Sukta 19 of the Rig Veda, more than 5000 years old. These associations come with the nature experience. The purpose is not to visit the owners. But they are there to help and serve you, but they are also living here for the nature experience. Adam Tribe is a homestead on top of a mountain hill. The nearest neigbours are a one hour walk down the mountain to Makanpur village. The village is clean and the people are friendly. Ask anyone where the trail to Pakhure is, and the smiling reply makes you want to ask again. The mountain Inn is a 2-3 hour walk to Panchassee mountain, a nearby Vedic tradition yearly festival. This is an ancient holy place and where a Vedic hymn was composed: this could be a day-loop trek. -------------- Food The Mountain Inn has a simple kitchen but professional just like the simplicity of the fundamental-style of rooms. Organic and home made, the food is cooked on an old-fashioned North American wood stove. Here again, the focus is on an inner sustenance and so the menu is not complicated. The physical exercise and fresh air may bring personal requirements that need to be carried up to the lodge with you. Remember that the nearest shop that sells biscuits, mostly, is a one hour walk through the forest down the mountain. Then you need to walk back. The rice and vegetables are grown in the fields below the Inn. The ghee and milk and curd come from the buffalo. Like the birds and wind, this buffalo calls out to us in the day. But the simple purity of things at the Mountain Inn is found essentially in the mountain spring water. In Himalayan culture, water is one of the holiest of nature symbols. Some local place names simply describe the quality of water found there. Our water comes from the inside of the sacred divine Himalaya, a goddess conception from a remote antiquity. We drink Her blessings in every glass. The kitchen of the Mountain Inn is there to serve pure water. In Vedic hymns. From an age that ended 5000 years ago, Mountain-Mother Annapurna provides the food cooked in the kitchen. In the Mandala 5 Sukta 19 hymn of the Rig Veda, Annapurna is described as the “white-shining mother", just the way She looks from the Mountain Inn. Rice is the symbol of also of a spiritual sustenance that Annapurna provides. This perhaps why the local people are happy to eat the same food everyday. --------------------------- Rooms A visit to the Mountain Inn finds oneself focused on an incredible nature experience that surrounds the grassland. The sky, Himalayan mountains and a visually infinite green forest combine to produce a pristine setting that fills something inside. Everything about this visit places oneself in a traditionally divine nature symbolism. The rooms share this divine symbolism on the walls. The walls were built by hand in the ancient stone and mud mortar style, then covered with an earthen mixture. This hand applied covering produces a visually wavy effect, with the protruding stone ends outlined in magical afternoon shadows. The floor and walls in each room contain that inspiring soft earthen tint that we can recognize as the divine Mother Earth. This is the point about sleeping in Mountain Inn's rooms, as the rooms explore the outside nature experience from a different perspective: one is relaxed and quiet in a room surrounded by the Earth on all sides: Her connection remains! The simplicity of the rooms brings the mind back to more fundamental things than air-conditioned comfort. The Himalayan symbol for this experience of being surrounded in nature, here being surrounded by earthen walls, is described as “sitting in the lap of the mother" in Vedic chants. In an English translation of Vedic Sanskrit found in Hymns to the Mystic Fire by Sri Aurobindo, these nature images from pre-history are also photographable, for example in the nature symbolism of Annapurna. As the memory of being held in the lap of our human mothers is forever alive in us, there are pre-historic practices of self-discovery based upon it. Welcome home! A tent is provided in comfort season if you want to sleep with the Earth-Mother. And just out the guest room doors is a packed earth verandah and awning for meditating on the vastness in front. Five minutes down the slope from where you will sit is a primal rock temple from many thousands of years ago. Sitting there, in front of the Earth-Mother shrine, places the vastness in an inner context. Be careful, She may return your glances! ------------------------------------- Activities The first activity is the climb to the grassland upon which the Mountain Inn sits. PLEASE be ready for a one hour climb at 60 degrees. Then a rest in Makanpur village occurs before the second one hour climb begins. While the second climb is easier, some degree of physical ability is required. Not mountain-climbing ability, just simple everyday physical fitness is required! And should you be interested, during this climb some Vedic breathing practices can be attempted so that the noise of the mind fades into the background. Nature experience is not of the mind, so keeping it quiet is helpful. This climb is also within a Himalayan pilgrimage tradition to the summit across the valley from the Inn. Vedic hymns suggest “churning" the breaths in an association with the old fashioned method of churning butter. There is much that can be learned during this visit. Some fundamental yoga concepts are present in Himalayan nature experience, where tradition says the yoga practices began. Once settled, there are a number of Mountain Inn nature experiences inside the thick stone property wall: like gardening, cutting firewood or feeding the animals for example. The Mountain Inn is basically an organic Himalayan farm project atop a grassland crest surrounded by jungle in front of Annapurna. For example the chickens are kept inside a house to protect them from eagles and hawks. Village buffalo wander by outside the wall, munching on the growths of this Grassland-Mother. The setting is perfect for the beginning or development of a personal relationship with our divine Earth-Mother, as well as our human womanhood which shares the same symbol in Himalayan society. Bring your mother to update her on the living divine Feminine culture of the holy Himalayas! --------------------------------- Hiking and Treks There are a variety of local day treks that loop back to the Mountain Inn. Here is another opportunity to experience the forest canopy supplying a sense-experience for the psychological self-discovery practice of “sitting in the “lap of the (Forest) mother". Here also what was learned in the “churning" of the breaths on the original ascent to the Inn can be applied. Nature experience can be as concentrated as a meditation practice when the Himalayan pilgrimage tradition is invoked. It takes practice to watch outside so we don't fall on the forest buffalo trail above the Inn, while at the same time watching our breathing cycle. Mountain-Mother Pilgrimage symbols are found everywhere around. ---------------------------------- Pilgrimage to Mountain-Mother Ramchay Looking across the valley from the Inn, the highest hilltop has a holy summit. This site is from the earliest ages in Himalayan history, and so multiple levels of experience are present. Similarly there are multiple aspects of the original divinity atop this peak. There is an element of education involved in this pilgrimage. From the Mountain Inn it is about a two hour climb to reach Ramchay. The first hour is mostly upwards on a forest buffalo trail. The second hour has more open air hiking, following a winding grassland-edged trail. On a clear day this is a perfect setting for a picnic outing. Bring incense. At the site of Ramchay mountain's Mother-Earth holiness, with her primal Rock-Mother near us on the summit, the view calls for a rest and relaxation to allow us to absorb her vastness and beauty attributes. Here another Himalayan practice of self-discovery is present, named Yantra meditation. In the Vedic period Ramchay was climbed in pilgrimage for the view of Annapurna. Described in the Mandala 5 Sukta 19 hymn, the centered upward pointing peak sitting in the center of Annapurna's “lap" is the focus for this visualization exercise. If you have an experienced outdoors confidence, the Mountain Inn will draw you a rough map of how to climb Ramchay. If you would feel more comfortable with a guide, the Inn will supply one. The point is that this experience contains things you can take home. ------------------------------- The Farm Animals and Boozi There are ducks, geese, chickens, rabbits, fish and the buffalo that provide the material for the fields to grow organic food. The fish pond has large catfish who are fed with rice and grains and are happy to fertilize their water so it can be drained onto the fields filled with good things for plant growth. The chickens etc. are not eaten, they die of old age on the Farm. The farm animals also provide much subject matter for observation, especially Boozi, the young female monkey. If you hike with Rooz of the Mountain Inn, Boozi will accompany you on his shoulder, jumping on and off branches en route. ------------------------------- Games The Mountain Inn (by invitation only) regularly hosts the Pakhure Backgammon Championship of the World; guests can try their skill. The winner gets a free glass of pure mountain spring water, warmed if requested. Then there is a gaming table that sits very colorfully against the beige tinted earthen covered walls: you may need to pinch yourself when you see it. Try your luck on days when you need a physical rest. There are treks and trails in every direction. Just above the guest rooms is an hour trek through untouched forest; this is the charm of a visit. There are day trekking-loops that require five hours of walking on village and forest trails. A- Ramchay "Shiva Temple" There is a trail from Adam Tribe to Ramchay temple at 2200m. Some people make hike it for two hours and some make it even in one hour (depends on your physical activity). We suggest you to hire a guide for this holy trek if you are not familiar with trails. Ramchay Temple Altitude: 2200 Status: Holy Shiva Temple Hiking duration: 1-1:30 hrs Guide: Available Difficulty: *** B- Panchasee Danda This one probably needs a guide for easy and smooth trek. This holy peak is located on 2500m above the sea. There is a mela festival once a year. Many locals and foreigners hike to the peak to do the thousands of years tradition. The hike requires strong will. From Adam Tribe the trek could starts at 7am and end at 5pm. It's one day trek and 25$ for hiring a local guide.

There are no skills required for getting to Adam Tribe but you need to hike for 3 hours which every one can do. So the guests will access to the Himalayan views, fresh spring water, forest-sounds and organic food at the Adam Tribe Mountain Inn. Remember this is the world of simplicity! Interaction with GuestsA visit to Mountain-Inn is for the unique Himalayan nature experience of vastness and beauty. Completely surrounded by forest, but just above the forest on a grassland crest, Mountain-Mother Annapurna is seen. This view is described in Mandala 5 Sukta 19 of the Rig Veda, more than 5000 years old. These associations come with the nature experience. The purpose is not to visit the owners. But they are there to help and serve you, but they are also living here for the nature experience. The NeighborhoodAdam Tribe is a homestead on top of a mountain hill. The nearest neigbours are a one hour walk down the mountain to Makanpur village. The village is clean and the people are friendly. Ask anyone where the trail to Pakhure is, and the smiling reply makes you want to ask again. The mountain Inn is a 2-3 hour walk to Panchassee mountain, a nearby Vedic tradition yearly festival. This is an ancient holy place and where a Vedic hymn was composed: this could be a day-loop trek. -------------- Food The Mountain Inn has a simple kitchen but professional just like the simplicity of the fundamental-style of rooms. Organic and home made, the food is cooked on an old-fashioned North American wood stove. Here again, the focus is on an inner sustenance and so the menu is not complicated. The physical exercise and fresh air may bring personal requirements that need to be carried up to the lodge with you. Remember that the nearest shop that sells biscuits, mostly, is a one hour walk through the forest down the mountain. Then you need to walk back. The rice and vegetables are grown in the fields below the Inn. The ghee and milk and curd come from the buffalo. Like the birds and wind, this buffalo calls out to us in the day. But the simple purity of things at the Mountain Inn is found essentially in the mountain spring water. In Himalayan culture, water is one of the holiest of nature symbols. Some local place names simply describe the quality of water found there. Our water comes from the inside of the sacred divine Himalaya, a goddess conception from a remote antiquity. We drink Her blessings in every glass. The kitchen of the Mountain Inn is there to serve pure water. In Vedic hymns. From an age that ended 5000 years ago, Mountain-Mother Annapurna provides the food cooked in the kitchen. In the Mandala 5 Sukta 19 hymn of the Rig Veda, Annapurna is described as the “white-shining mother", just the way She looks from the Mountain Inn. Rice is the symbol of also of a spiritual sustenance that Annapurna provides. This perhaps why the local people are happy to eat the same food everyday. --------------------------- Rooms A visit to the Mountain Inn finds oneself focused on an incredible nature experience that surrounds the grassland. The sky, Himalayan mountains and a visually infinite green forest combine to produce a pristine setting that fills something inside. Everything about this visit places oneself in a traditionally divine nature symbolism. The rooms share this divine symbolism on the walls. The walls were built by hand in the ancient stone and mud mortar style, then covered with an earthen mixture. This hand applied covering produces a visually wavy effect, with the protruding stone ends outlined in magical afternoon shadows. The floor and walls in each room contain that inspiring soft earthen tint that we can recognize as the divine Mother Earth. This is the point about sleeping in Mountain Inn's rooms, as the rooms explore the outside nature experience from a different perspective: one is relaxed and quiet in a room surrounded by the Earth on all sides: Her connection remains! The simplicity of the rooms brings the mind back to more fundamental things than air-conditioned comfort. The Himalayan symbol for this experience of being surrounded in nature, here being surrounded by earthen walls, is described as “sitting in the lap of the mother" in Vedic chants. In an English translation of Vedic Sanskrit found in Hymns to the Mystic Fire by Sri Aurobindo, these nature images from pre-history are also photographable, for example in the nature symbolism of Annapurna. As the memory of being held in the lap of our human mothers is forever alive in us, there are pre-historic practices of self-discovery based upon it. Welcome home! A tent is provided in comfort season if you want to sleep with the Earth-Mother. And just out the guest room doors is a packed earth verandah and awning for meditating on the vastness in front. Five minutes down the slope from where you will sit is a primal rock temple from many thousands of years ago. Sitting there, in front of the Earth-Mother shrine, places the vastness in an inner context. Be careful, She may return your glances! ------------------------------------- Activities The first activity is the climb to the grassland upon which the Mountain Inn sits. PLEASE be ready for a one hour climb at 60 degrees. Then a rest in Makanpur village occurs before the second one hour climb begins. While the second climb is easier, some degree of physical ability is required. Not mountain-climbing ability, just simple everyday physical fitness is required! And should you be interested, during this climb some Vedic breathing practices can be attempted so that the noise of the mind fades into the background. Nature experience is not of the mind, so keeping it quiet is helpful. This climb is also within a Himalayan pilgrimage tradition to the summit across the valley from the Inn. Vedic hymns suggest “churning" the breaths in an association with the old fashioned method of churning butter. There is much that can be learned during this visit. Some fundamental yoga concepts are present in Himalayan nature experience, where tradition says the yoga practices began.
