Nepal, the country of high Himalayas, splendid mountains, strange wildlife and diverse cultures is a world in itself. Nepal has a unique landscape stretches from the pinnacle of Mt. Everest (8848 m) in the north to Lumbini, the birthplace of Lord Gautam Buddha, in southern Terai where diverse human cultures and natural habitats can be found. It is a matter of pleasure to mention that Nepal is also a home of countless river, glacial lakes, lakes, and creeks with their common origin in the Himalaya. The Greater One-horned Rhinoceros is perhaps the most enduring symbol of Nepal’s rich biological heritage. Nepal is a paradise for bird lovers with over 646 species (almost 8% of the world total) of birds. Nepal also offers a wide range of climatic, geographic and vegetation variations according to the altitude. This wide variation has favored varieties of species of flora and fauna to thrive. There are many places around Kathmandu to see great mountain view and natural beauty. Nagarkot is one of them. Nagarkot, an internationally renowned resort set on the edge of the Kathmandu valley, close to the city of Devotees, Bhaktapur, is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful areas of the country. It lies at an altitude of 2150 and is located 32 kilometers north-east of Kathmandu. As it is located in high hill, it has a very clean environment with its natural resources and is covered with forests. It is renowned for its spectacular sunrise and sunset view of the Himalaya when the weather is clear.

Hawan (Fire Poja)
AGNI HOTRA Agni Hotra (fire puja) is performed daily at 7:40am in the Vedic tradition. This ancient ritual performed in sanskrit and has a strong life supportive influence for all living beings in the evironment. The home stay has handbooks with Vedic mantras in Romanized Sanskrit as well as English translations. Guests are welcome to experience and learn this ancient Nepalese ritual.
KIRTAN Kirtan is the chanting of names or archetypes. It is a melodious, uplifting practice that encourages the surrender of the ego, and letting go of constructs which hold us back from free-flowing energy and opening the heart. No previous experience is needed and there is no need to be a good singer to attend kirtan. Kirtan is usually twice a week. Tuesday and Friday evenings at 7:15pm – 8pm.

  • This homestay exceeded my expectations in every way. I found the environment serene, peaceful, and blissful. The village's beauty is captivating, healing, and encompasses the essence of Nepali culture and traditions. The air was crisp and the sounds of nature are comforting and grounding. The accommodation was comfortable, new, and very clean. The food provided was some of the tastiest food I have ever experienced in my two years of traveling abroad. The food is made with love is pure and truly nourishing. The family is warm generous and there to help you with any need you may have, and able to provide almost anything you may desire. The intention of my visit was to find a peaceful place to rest and practice meditation and yoga. The environment allowed for this. The bonus of being in a caring environment with a lovely family was a added surprise. This place is great for relaxation and also the vastness of the surrounding mountains is perfect for walks in nature and many adventures if you desire so .And still in close proximity to a nearby city. I found the place to be a magical destination that allowed me to feel comfortable and instantly at home. I feel the up most gratitude for this home stay and the warmth they share with each guest. I found the homestay to be the most accurate in the description provided. A wonderful place to visit and come find whatever you may be looking for.

  • The Bastola family, who runs the beautifully situated homestay, is such a lovely family. They are fun, full of joy and I can only recommend everyone, who wants to experience the true beauty of Nepal and the traditional ways of living in a Nepali village to stay with this wonderful family. Just be prepared, it might be difficult to leave again, as they very easily capture a part of your heart. Also, all facilities are really amazing. The rooms are beautiful, they have very comfortable beds and privately attached bathrooms.

  • Highly recommended!! The house is in the proximity from Kathmandu, just 1 hour from there, yet clean air and fresh water in middle of peaceful farmlands, next to mountains. It seems if in the right season, you can even see a bit of Himalayas with some mountain walk from their home! I would say come stay here instead if you have time to spend in Kathmandu to be exhausted in caos.... Kathmandu city's air is not quite for human's lung.. I got badly sick after a week.. Also Nagarkot was too touristy and exploited, to me personally. So it was fine I visited there only daytime.... I stayed for 2 days with the family - who is so warm and hospitable, you will experience what a simple and happy family life with no complication is like. The daughter Nikita is a sabby young lady who was a great companion to me. The host's wife is such a lovely lady. The family knows what yoga culture is by their past working experience in Rishkesh's ashram and takes care of customers' holistic health in rural Nepalise' way. The best is 3 yummiest meals made by organic food they grow at their farm + fresh water from mountain !! If you realize how prevalent chemical-ladden food is in Asia and how it silently affects your gut,,, the most precious is home-grown organic food, really. I felt so healed by their prana-filled veges pulses after eating restraunt food in India etc for long long time. No wonder the family looks uber-healthy. The host Rajan is a nature lover and a patient hiking guide. He took me to a peaceful walk to a local waterfall and pineforest meditation. It was so so healing as well. After my lung being knocked down by Kathmandu city, being able to breathe air deep from the bottom of my lung, and total silence in forests, was a real treasure.. The accommodation is modern clean (even a bit too modern for me :)) and comfy. If not joining in a retreat they organize, do your own yoga and meditation. There are good spots in nature around there.

  • The last part of my Nepal trip I stayed at the Bastola family's house in Kharapati down Phedi. From Bhaktapur I took a local bus, about 20 mins, the bus stops very closeby. The accommodation is in clean, spacious rooms, with brand new bathrooms. Most of the food they serve comes from their land, though what they offer quiet one sided (think Dal Bhaat), but comes from a good heart. At the time I was staying, no yoga teacher was there, so no yoga. Rajan does know yoga very well and he has heeps of contacts as he was a manager at a Rishikesh yoga ashram in India, but he does no teach. For me the big plus was to a peek into local family life and talk about Nepali customs and culture with Rajan. Add to this the green hills (he took me to a nice waterfall in the direct surroudings.) and agricultural lifestyle the village is living. It made a good closure of my Nepal trip. Better than staying in noisy, dusty Thamel. The airport is quiet closeby.

  • Staying with Niru's family made my stay in Nepal much more memorable. Niru makes such hearty vegetarian meals and you'll never go hungry while you're there. Rajan showed me around, helped me book a local flight and taught me how to take the local bus. The kids are a sweet bunch as well. I enjoyed listening to their stories and watching them dance - one of their favorite pastimes. Will definitely visit again when I go back!

  • I suggest to all travellers who are looking for home far from home to meet Niru and his family. She has a deeply good-heart skill, she is a very good cooker and has an every-day smiley that really catch your heart. Love you.
  • I met Niru-ji and Rajan-ji in Rishikesh (India) where we worked together at Anand Prakash Yoga Ashram. Niru is the sweetest woman I’ve ever met, she loves cooking and feeding abundant portions of food to the ashram guests. She loves chanting and kirtan with her has a different flavor. Even though she didn’t speak much English we could communicate with her very easily because she speaks from the heart. She’s Mata-ji! I love her to pieces! Rajan is Niru’s husband and as a couple they make a perfect divine match. You can see how they love each other, support each other and devote to each other. Rajan is a great worker, he does everything so fast and efficiently and he’s multitasking, he can do pretty much everything! He has a great heart too and I love him to pieces too! I will never forget their friendship. I miss their beautiful kids too! After the earthquake in Nepal last year I suggested the yoga family to help them and raise some money to rebuild their family house that had been destroyed. Their new home stay is the result of this crowd funding. It comes from love and union of this wonderful Akhanda yoga family. We are all ONE! Staying with Niru and Rajan at their new home stay will just be a wonderful experience as I know how they look after their guests with love and pure hearts. Simple things are the sweetest gift.

  • In April 2016, a girl who I met in Thailand knew about Rajan and his family and offered me to contact him to ask if I can stay in his place for the first night. I could- how amazing to start my Nepal trip with a Nepalese family. Rajan promised me to pick me up from the airport and he did. Finally, I stayed one week with him and his amazing family. Always smiling people, amazing food, lovely children, Fresh milk from their cow, a lot of hugs and love. Rajans wife is like sunshine and she cocked so nice food for us, tea or coffee. I cannot remember her face without a big, big smile. The children’s sang and danced for me and I spent a lot of time with them. Grandpa and grandma- I really love them. Our days were full of joy, talking and love and I had the possibility to learn a lot about Nepalese culture. I could ask any question and I also learn some Nepalese language, learned how to milk the cow. Rajan spent a lot of time showing me places like waterfall, nice forest and also Bhaktapur. He supported really poor children in a brick factory happy for one day. We went there and asked what they need and bought copies, pen and toys for them. The whole time I felt like past of the family. Also the brother’s family- Which lives close invited me and showed me nice thing about cooking. I will never forget the time I had and it was really hard to leave. For me it was best start I could have in foreign country with such a different culture. I really love the whole family and they have a big place in my heart forever. It feels like they are my family in Nepal and I really look forward to see and hug Nepal and Rajan and his family who supported me with everything. I needed or wanted to see or to know. I remember this time with a big smile on my face and with much love in my heart. Thank you so much.
  • Delightful and unexpected. This is not your ashram experience of yoga. This is far more personal, more grounding. This is an opportunity to engage my mind and body in the familiar depths of my yoga practice and then come out into the world and live it more consciously. Few modern conveniences beyond the shower ad bath. Niru is always warm, smiling and ready with a delicious meal. It’s hard to believe that it was all cooked with a wood fire over a clay stove. Perfect. Her husband, Rajan, led hikes pointing out many wild plants and their healing uses through new and magical terrain. While easy, it was not youaverage walk in the park. I’m looking forward to my next homestay. I’ll be back.
