Sirubari Village Tour is the perfect destination to explore the Village and Gurung Culture in Nepal. Higher Limits Trek & Expedition has always supported village tourism since its initiation into the profession. We have always felt that village tourism offers a unique opportunity for visitors to get involved with cultural life in Nepal. You travel to places where life is slow and everything is done by hand. Our company does a deal with a whole village to accommodate and entertain guests; rooms in local houses are fitted with bathrooms and a few tourist-style comforts, host families are trained to prepare meals hygienically, and a guide accompanies the guests to interpret.
Sirubari village is a quiet Gurung settlement in the hills at 1700 meters above sea level and short drive / walk (gentle hike) from Pokhara. The climate is ideal at any time during the September to June season where the days are warm with cool nights. This program is especially prepared to know the locals and their culture staying within a village environment as a family member. The village will welcome you and you can stay in one of the family homes of the village. The accommodation is simple but comfortable with good bedding and a clean toilet with facilities that are comfortable as per village standards. The food is delicious and you will be eating with the family. The village community will arrange different programs for your entertainment. This will be in the form of traditional Gurung and Nepali dancing and singing, you can join in if you like.
