The collocation, Homestay, carries ample warmth and affection per se. If you are traveling in order to experience and imbibe a particular culture joyously in its subtleties and details, the home stay is an expedient way to achieving this. Moreover, it is a portal to getting to heart and mind of folks from a different culture and tradition, and discovering the underlying human quality similar to one’s own despite the differences in ways of life. It eliminates mental reservations and prejudices held against people of another culture thereby developing and strengthening the intercultural bond. And the home stay becomes all the more inviting and pleasant when the people are originally innocent and amiable. Nepal is arguably the best. People are ever-welcoming and kind-hearted.
Besides, your home stay will be beneficial to you as well as your host. You will have to spend much less than in a hotel, but your host struggling with the economy can benefit hugely. It makes a good reason to opt for the homestay wherever possible. For now, most of the homestays are available along off the beaten track, but they are growing in number across Nepal. The Home stay was first started in Sirubari and Ghalegaon. Now it is run in various places across the country like Chitwan, Pokhara, Nuwakot, Kavrepalanchowk, Ilam, Palpa, Gorkha, Syangja, Kalikot, Kailali, Tanahun, and different other places. Places like Thamel, Kritipur, Patan, and Naya Bazaar inside the Kathmandu Valley also have homestays.
Nepal is a culturally and ethnically diversified country. Each culture and ethnic group has its own food habits, so you will relish local cuisine prepared from the produces therein. Above all, you will be treated rather as a guest than as a customer, which will make you feel homely. Since you have chosen to experience a different life, a different world, though, for a day or two, it is advisable to go for the home stay and see and experience the life the people live there.
