This was our first ever agro-volunteer experience and it has truly been one of the most enjoyable experiences of our time in Nepal. We stayed for two weeks with the Bastola family and it was nothing short of wonderful. They made us feel a part of the family right away. We learned so much — the culture, the food, the language, the plants, and more. We were immersed in nature. We woke up with the birds and bugs to wonderful views of the hills and lake. We helped with the digging and planting of vegetables, helped cut grass for the buffalos and goats, and harvested fruits and vegetables. They have so many different useful plants (fruits, vegetables, and medicinal)!! The days were laid back and relaxing, and we were able to simply enjoy being there. We also enjoyed going to the lake as well as the waterfalls.The food was delicious (dherrai mitho chha!!) and the family was unforgettable. We recommend Amrit Kunja to anyone looking for a true Nepali farming experience with a wonderful family.
Thank you Bastola family for everything. We miss you and are looking forward to returning.
