My family and I stayed 4 nights at Babu & Belku's homestay and it was a lovely experience. When we arrived Belku welcomed us all with a hug, a flower, and a smile that lit the room. We truly felt they were happy to have us in their home as part of their family. Our sons hit it off straight away with their son (Aayush) and they were soon riding bikes and playing cards with the village kids. Babu also acted as a guide. He showed us around his village, introducing us to his parents and showing us the traditional Nepali house where he was born. He also took us the local brick factory and a monestery and we hiked up the mountain near his house - all great ways to see how the locals really live in Nepal. We also discussed ideas for a trek and a visit to Chitwan, and Babu organised everything for us including guide (Nil - Belku's brother) and porters - who were professionial, honest, warm, friendly and lots of fun. Babu also booked our hotels with big savings on internet prices. If you have a chance to do a homestay in Nepal, I recommend staying with Babu and his family to experience how open and giving the Nepalese really are. As for the accommodation - the house has been built with guests in mind so you have privacy upstairs, while the family lives downstairs. Our typical day was to have breakfast in the kitchen, then hike around the valley with Babu. When we returned, Belku would feed us a great dinner in the kitchen, then we'd gather in the living room to chat with the family until bed time. The kids played games, and watched TV like kids all over the world. Thank you to Babu and Belku for giving us such wonderful memories.
