The Nepalko Sathi association set up a community garden in Gontala in 2017. This garden is not only intended to produce vegetables and fruits, but also to train the population in permaculture, mainly women, in order to achieve allotment gardens. After initiating our responsible gardener, Phurtemba, he undertook the training of the women of Gontala, then those of the other villages, Dobatak, Saisima and Yangden.
The first settlement of the valley is theorized to have taken place when the first King of Kaski, Kulamandan Shah Khad made Batulechaur in the northern side of the valley his winter capital during the mid 14th century.
Pokhara is the leader adventure and leisure destination in Nepal, a gateway for nature lovers in the Annapurna region with plenty of entertainment.
In Pokhara you can experience the excitement of adventure: boating, hiking, pony rides, paragliding, bungee, zipline or simply relaxing at one of the several lakes in the valley.
Pokhara will overwhelm you with its natural beauty and great photo ops. Walk along the shores of the Fewa (Phewa) Lake, enjoy the greenery surrounding you and gaze at the spectacular panoramic view of the Himalayan peaks of the Annapurna Massif. Brightly painted wooden boats add vibrant colors to the greenery, while paragliders float down slowly from above. Flying over the lake is probably going to be one of the highlights of your travel experience in Nepal.
Pokhara is the starting point for Lumbini, the Annapurna circuit, for the upper Mustang, for the Manaslu, Jomsom, Muktinath, the Chitwan natural park and more.
Planes fly regularly from Tumlingtar Airport to Biratnagar and Kathmandu. The 1,400-meter track is located west of the village of Tumlingtar, taking advantage of the only plateau in the valley. Currently, the airlines operating flights from Tumlingtar are Buddha Air and Yeti Airlines. Tumlingtar is the main airport of entry to reach Makalu, the summit being about 50 km north of the city, with the base camp accessible by trekking routes.
This village perched at 2300 m is located in the sacred valley of Khembalung, in the national park Makalu-Barun. Our project aims to ensure the food self-sufficiency of the village, but also to become a permaculture training center.
On six hectares of partially abandoned land, in the ethics and principles of permaculture, we will initiate a farm comprising a dwelling and reception house, vegetable gardens, fields of food crops, agroforestry, breeding, henhouse. After its completion, this farm will also become a permaculture training center. This project requires fairly significant resources.
If you want to support the development of this village, you can donate to the Nepalko Sathi Association.
