Homestay Tour is the popular type of accommodation where the locals provide hospitality services to the visitors at their own home. The host has some extra rooms prepared in the house exclusively for the visitors. The food that is prepared for the whole household is shared with the visitor. It is ideal for a solo traveler or a group with few members. It is also affordable and more traditional. Homestay with a family is relaxing and interactive that makes the visitors feel at home. Visitors also experience the place and food as a general local does, and they can get more insight into the culture of the place after living with the locals.
While staying at a local house, the guests can immerse in the local customs and traditions of the villages of Nepal. They can learn few Nepali lines or songs while interacting with the locals. They can assist the house members in their daily chores and witness things never seen before. It is mesmerizing how the locals prepare everything from the scratch and turn the raw into something wonderful and usable. The visitors can forget their usual themselves and also live as a farmer or herder in the villages. The experience in a homestay truly defines the saying,’ home away from home’.
The main aim of homestay programs has been to promote eco-tourism and to assist the villagers financially. The system of homestay was introduced by the Government of Nepal in the year 2011, as masses of tourists were expected to visit during the ‘Nepal Tourism Year 2011’. It was a successful addition among other infrastructures provided. Since then, the facility of a traditional homestay has been blooming and loved by internal as well as international visitors throughout the year. Initially, first introduced homestay in Nepal was Ghalegaun Homestay in Lamjung district and Sirubari Homestay in Syangja district. It gradually started in other places as well, due to its popularity and accessibility. Although it was aimed at an affordable and cultural accommodation in the isolated rural areas, it has gained popularity in the urban areas as well.
Homestay Trek in Nepal is also fascinating as it lets the guests live in the place and not just visit the destinations. Visitors arriving at a new destination may be overwhelming, but the friendly locals make it look familiar and much comfortable. The host family treat the guests as a part of their family but also respect their privacies and alone time in the village. The hosts can also provide guidance to travel around the villages and share some of their wonderful or adventurous stories. An experience of a homestay in Nepal is a memory that is unforgettable and stays at heart for a lifetime.
