Sirubari village is yet another prototype of a perfect Gurung settlement in the hills at an altitude of 1,700m above sea level. The climate is excellent at any time during the September to May with warm days and cool nights except the winter. The village is at stone’s throw from Pokhara, the major tourist centre for the Annapurna region in Nepal. It is on way to Lumbini, the birthplace of the Lord Buddha. You are welcomed to the Gurung community and invited to stay in the village home of one of the villagers. The accommodation is simple but comfortable with homelike service.
The indigenous food served is palatable and relishing which you eat as one of the members of the Gurung family. Each night there is a traditional event organized by the community. This will be in the form of traditional Gurung and Nepali dancing and singing, you can join in if you like! As the locals are all Buddhist, the village Gompa, a simple but beautiful temple, are places of your interest. There is an opportunity to get some blessings from the resident lama before you leave. Just because you are not trekking it doesn't mean that you won't see the mountains. An easy walk above the village is a view point at Thumro, the highest south point of Pokhara and the views on a clear day are spectacular. Spread before you are rolling foothills dotted with isolated farming communities and crowned by an array of snow peaks that will leave you breathless. From here to see mount Langtang in the east, through Mt. Machhapuchare (Fishtail) and the Annapurnas and around Mt. Dhaulagiri the Himalayan giants all line up for your memorable photos. During your stay you will be able to feel what it is like to live the life of a Nepali villager. At the end of your stay, you will be overwhelmed by the farewell that your recent family will offer you. Whether or not you return, the village and its people will remain in your heart forever. Monterosa Treks and Expedition (P) Ltd will always be leading and guiding you through the entire home stay tour in Nepal.
