The space
Although some foreign travellers hear about Panchase, most take the bus directly to the top of the mountain and bypass dozens of spectacular villages dotted along the way. Staying at Dar Kumari’s homestay you will be one of the few travellers to reach beyond the Pokhara tourist bubble and connect with the generous, vibrant and earthly Gurung people as you are welcomed into their community at the foothills of the Himalaya.
Dar Kumari’s family have two rooms with three beds available in each private, upstairs bedroom of their two story traditional mudhouse. As the village is relatively untouched by tourism, there are no restaurants or shops nearby. However all meals are included in the cost of the room and Dar Kumari will serve you more food than most people are ever able to eat! Most of what you will find on your plate has come from within 300 metres of their house and the rice from the area is reputed to be some of the best in Nepal.
We can accommodate up to six persons as we have two private rooms available with three beds in each. For more than three people, please visit our second listing titled: Village Homestay Panchase - Pokhara - Room 2

Where you’ll be

Damdame Village, Kaski District, 3 hours from Pokhara, Nepal

Dar Kumari’s Homestay is nestled on the side of a mountain considered sacred to many Nepalese, yet they’ve somehow kept this gem hidden from the mainstream tourist and trekking community. With twin Buddhist and Hindu temples on the peak and a spectacular view of the Annapurna range, Panchase mountain attracts spiritual pilgrims and, once a year, party revellers for the annual Gurung picnic festival.

Gurung people are known for their generous hospitality and you will not need to lift a finger while you stay with our family. We have two different homestays near Pokhara where you can escape Nepal's tourist bubble. One is a unique rural homestay in a mountain village staying with Rabindra and "Ama". There you can sit around the fire drinking tea and rice wine, stargazing or sometimes dancing and drumming under a full moon... The other is a modern homestay in an undiscovered corner of Pokhara where the city becomes the countryside. Staying with Ama's children and grandchildren, you can wander through rice and veggie fields, walk over the river to the nearby Buddhist monastery or sit on the balcony with a view of the Himalayas and watch Nepali daily life happen by. Both are truly unique ways to experience our beautiful country. We can't wait to welcome you into our family.

During your stay

Gurung people are known for their generous hospitality and you will not need to lift a finger while you are here. Only one member in the family speaks English, Rabindra, but his mother, Dar Kumari, has developed a unique sign language to use with foreigners so you’ll somehow find yourselves able to communicate even when Rabindra is not around. Nights might be spent chatting (ie playing charades!) around the fire, drinking tea and rice wine, stargazing or sometimes dancing, singing and drumming under a full moon.
