Impact on

In 2013, fifteen women from Panauti formed this Community Homestay as a way of helping to raise their status and income through tourism. (Since 2013, the number of households offering homestays has risen to seventeen.) As in other parts of Nepal, the role of women is too often relegated to that of just a housewife, with little other opportunities. To challenge this, the women opened their houses to travelers from all around the world with the help of Royal Mountain Travel. By interacting with guests, they improved their English and found a way to make a sustainable income through tourism.
