Tour Details

You will wake up with your host family and participate in their morning routine and household activities. We can guarantee this will be very different from what you are used to. A typical family will start their day milking the cows and carrying the milk back to the house. We highly recommend you take this opportunity to step outside your comfort zone and embrace this morning routine. As with all animals, cleaning the cowsheds is another priority for a family. You can either watch how they do this or participate if you want the fuller experience. 

Early in the morning is the perfect time to take a walk through the neighbourhood and meet the people. Do not be surprised if the elders call on you to take a sip of tea. This warm hospitality will follow you everywhere you go. 

Breakfast will usually be served between 9-10 am. This local meal is made from fresh products and will consist of steamed rice (Bhat), lentils soup (Daal), vegetables with hot and sour pickles. Take this opportunity to enhance your cooking skills and join in with the family in the kitchen. They will be more than happy to share with you their family recipes and secrets. 

After you have eaten you will be visiting a local school to introduce yourself and learn how the schools operate. The children will be excited to see you and we recommend you integrate yourself accordingly and get to know the children. There will be English speaking teachers in the school who will provide information on the education system, culture and the community. Visiting a school is the perfect opportunity to get to know the village and the people. 

In the afternoon you can explore the farmlands. Here you will have the chance to join a local group of women to engage yourself in farming. This can include going to the rice fields, working in vegetable farming or helping with the traditional animal farming. Activities will vary depending on the season but rest assured, there will be plenty of activities for you to choose from. 

The evenings will be mostly spent with your host family reflecting on the day and having quality time with locals. Save some energy for the evening as you may find yourself learning traditional dance, listening to traditional music and if you are feeling brave, some singing! The children will also want you to play with them or help with their homework. Dinner will be served in the evening, much like with breakfast, feel free to help out and learn more about the local cuisine.
