As somebody else has already written, we would like to keep this guesthouse a well kept secret
so it will never lose it's soul but on the other hand we wish this village project every possible success so that the community can slowly improve its living conditions!
Gothauli is a small peaceful village in the beautiful plains of Nepal right next to Chitwan National Parc.
The guest house with its two small but clean rooms is in the middle of the village and you will be able to observe the daily activities of the very friendly villagers. You can participate in lots of activities, our sons are very proud of their ox cart driving licence and their Nepalese henna tatoos ! Every evening you will be invited to dinner in a different family and afterwards
you can sit outside under the beautiful sky and have a chat with the village women - pure magic! And of course, there are Sukram, Paru and other staff whose friendliness
and availability we will not forget! (Thank you very much, again!)
Actually, I could write a lot more but believe me you should go and see for yourself, it's also a perfect place for families with children, no cars, only farm animals and of course, you can go for a jungle safari in Chitwan and see rhinos, crocodiles and maybe even a tiger!
We already miss this special village atmosphere and hope to come back one day!

We had the pleasure of staying here in October 2012. We had no idea such an experience was possible, and attended on the recommendation of our tour guide. We spent one day and one night in the Village, giving us an unparalleled view of daily life there. Coming from a large urban center in Canada, we had never experienced anything like this. We were instantly welcomed, and the young girls took great pleasure in painting my nails and applying kohl to my eyes so that I looked like them. I got a henna tattoo, my husband learned to drive an ox cart, and we both learned to cook a traditional meal over a fire. During our tour of the Village, everyone smiled and waved, and children clamored to have their photographs taken.

We cannot express how grateful we are to have been welcomed so wholeheartedly, nor how touched we were to be invited to share in their daily lives. Had we not come here, we would never have truly witnessed how much of the rural population lives, and we are so much richer for it.

The accommodations are basic (you are in a rural Nepalese village, after all!), but very clean and comfortable. They have a separate toilet and shower room dedicated to guests. Both of these are modern and very clean. The food is DELICIOUS, and the hosts could not be more gracious. This place should be in every guide book on Nepal. It is not to be missed.

What a place - what fantastic and nice people. Simply a unique experience and very authentic.
Wether you go join the kids or the women or... You're garanteed a great and insightful experience that will enable you to understand this culture in a relaxed and pleasant way.
Dining in the evening with the locals, playing football with the kids, going fishing or simply watching the everyday life of the Tharus is tonic for the soul.
Nepal is 99% about the Himalayans, which are majestic, but don't forget the lowlands and the jungle - and visit the Tharu village Gothauli and support this sustainable project which enables the local villagers to run a local enterprise for the good of all.

Traveling to Nepal was one thing, but staying in this village was a whole other ball game. Sitaram and Paro were kind and welcoming. The accommodations were out of this world. Spending our days getting to know people in the village, driving the ox cart, fishing with the children, bicycling around to see the surrounding area, participating in a festival, eating every night with a different family in their home. We were only there for three days, but out of my whole month in Nepal, it was definitely the high light of the trip. I love how only small numbers of people can stay at a time; it makes the experience much more personal. If you are going to be traveling in Nepal, this should definitely be one of your top priorities.

Tharu 20 for 7 is a place we keep coming back to! Being able to stay in a clean comfortable place among fantastic Mahato family is such a joy and very reinvigorating. Travelling around Nepal it is very rare that one really get a chance to share the day to day routine and joys of the people. At Tharu 20 for 7 this opportunity is right on the doorstep of the beautiful little guest cottage. We loved sitting around the fire at night listening to the tales of the uncles and aunties of the village and will be back many many times in the future as there is no place we would rather stay in Chitwan!
