Shree Antu is a small village in Ilam, surrounded by cultivated tea fields and beautiful gardens, and with the third-highest mountain in the world, Kanchenjunga (8586 metres) to the north. The people living in this area are ethnic Limbu, Tamang, Rai, Lepcha, and Magar. Staying at the Shree Antu Community Homestay is an opportunity to learn about these Nepali cultural groups, some of whom are spread throughout the country, but others live mainly in the eastern regions.
During a guided evening bike ride around the village, past vibrant green rice paddies, immaculate mud homes with giant piles of hay outside, and down to the banks of the Narayani River for a blood-orange sunset, you may be the only tourist around. This bike ride was a highlight of my stay in Barauli, as I got to see Tharu village life close-up.
Immerse yourself in an authentic Local Tharu culture close to Bardiya National Park with its unspoiled wilderness of grassland and riverine forest in the mid-western Terai region, the Community homestay in Dalla offers a peek into the lives of Danguara Tharus and opportunity to explore the rarest of wildlife in Nepal. Living with the locals in their traditional mud and wood houses you can get a glimpse of the way of life that has gone largely unchanged over time.
In a trek that takes you around villages connected by their community homestays, explore a less visited magnificent area close to the Annapurnas. Like the more popular Poon Hill trek or Annapurna base camp trek, this trek takes you through very similar landscapes.
The Tamang Heritage Trail is close to the famous Langtang Valley, which passes through 'Tamang' villages - early settlers of the high hilly mountains.
This trek is ideal trek if you prefer a trek off the beaten track where you can immerse yourself completely in the natural beauty of the Himalayas and meet a handful of locals in their tiny mountain communities.
