 This Nuwakot trip is for those wanting an authentic experience of local Nepali village life. The trip will take you through villages of Nuwakot and Samari; here you will enjoy accommodation in traditional village houses with authentic local Nepali hospitality and experience sustainable tourism that is positive for the whole local community.  You are offered the chance to interact with local villagers, enjoy nature tours and short hikes. You will discover that their simplicity, warmth and friendliness are as appreciable as the beautiful countryside they live in.


The lifestyle of this area follows an agrarian way, where the Nepali villagers are still following the old practices and traditions. The working life of these villagers on the rural outposts involve farming and rearing livestock, their day begins at sunrise and continues well after dark depending on the seasons. Although much of the area is considered to live below the poverty line, the genuine friendliness and welcome of the local villagers is something you will not forget.


Both retreats at Samari and Nuwakot are run on sustainable tourism/eco-friendly principles and offer tourists the chance to experience local culture and history. Both retreats are traditional old buildings that have been restored and slightly renovated for the convenience of travellers. The renovations have used local materials and workers, and the daily upkeep and produce used is all locally sourced.
