and nights. Sirubari village is a short drive and walk from
Pokhara, the major tourist center for the Annapurna. It
is reached from the road to Lumbini. The trail to the village
is steep but well made and most people manage to reach the
village after a three-hour walk. We will be welcomed into
the community and invited to stay in the home of one of
the villages. The accommodation is simple but comfortable
with good bedding as well as clean toilet facilities. The
food is delicious and you will be eating your meals as one
of the family. Each night there will be entertainment provided
by the community, one evening this will be in the form of
traditional Gurung and Nepali dancing and singing. You can
join in if you want. The living culture and tradition of
Gurungs blended with their rich hospitality make for an
unforgettable experience for any one who visits Sirubari.
During your stay you will be able to feel what it is like
to live the life of a Nepali villager. Walk with your family
while they go about their daily chores, tending animals,
tilling the fields, going to school with the children, or
just sitting in the sun talking to neighbors. Sirubari is
the winner of PATA Gold Award 2001 in Heritage and cultural-Heritage
There Are The Mountains :
Just because you are not trekking it doesn’t mean
that you won’t see the mountains. An easy one-hour
walk above the village is the viewpoint at Thumro. At 2300
meters this is the highest point of Pokhara and the views
on a clear day are spectacular. Spread before you are rolling
foothills dotted with isolated farming communities and crowned
by an array of snow peaks that will leave you breathless.
From Manaslu in the east through Machhapuchare and the Annapurnas
and around to Dhaulagiri the Himalaya giants all line up
for your camera to capture.
Village Life :
During your stay you will be able to feel what
it is like to live the life of a Nepali villager. Walk with
your family while they go about their daily chores, tending
animals, tilling the fields, going to school with the children,

to wander, safely, by yourself and look at all of the developments
that the community have supported and funded, the primary
health center with its doctor, the agricultural service
center. The veterinary hospital. The plant nursery and forest
plantation. The list goes on. And, at the end of your stay,
