I went to Nepal to trek, but by accident came across a fantastic homestay in the old city of Bhaktapur, a World Heritage site about 20km from Kathmandu. Krishna House (www.krishnashouse.com) offers an unlimited supply of authentic, home cooked nepali food, excellent room facilities(including western toilet) and a very friendly family atmosphere in which you also have your own space.
Although the facilities are awesome the real highlight is the guided tour of the city by Ajaya Prajapali. Aj's family have lived in Bhaktapur for generations. He makes the city come alive in terms of its religions, architecture, temples and festivals. But there is more to come. Aj takes you into the backstreets and alleyways, stooping and entering old doorways and couurtyards where no tourist ever ventures, to reveal the lifestyle and community living of the local Bhaktapur residents. Simply fascinating. An experience not to be missed.
