Rural homestay in the foothills of Mt. Manasulu

Hi all,

Nepal C safely arrived at Balamchaur village which is nestled in the foot hills of Mt. Manasulu ( 8th highest mountain in the world!). Our village is situated in the same area as the famous Annapurna circuit. It’s a small Gurung farming village of about 20 households. Our students joined their respective homestay families last night and are enjoying their rural village homestay.

This week we will be exploring the local area, speaking with village community members, experiencing local Gurung culture and enjoying the majestic mountains before heading off the another off the beaten path to our second xphase.

Please enjoy some of the photos of Balamchaur!
