The Eco Tourism
The Eco Tourism Concept is to provide travelers with a traditional Nepali village experience, with an ecological base, yet providing some home comforts. Mostly we want to implement our concept in to village let’s say Annapurna is the most popular for this practice for example we have an Annapurna Eco Village composed of several cottages made of split stone with slate roofs. Each room is spacious, has an attached bathroom with western toilet and comfortable beds. The cottages are set amongst an eco-farm within a traditional Nepali village.
Eco Village means that our cooking is mostly done on a bio-gas pit which handles toilet waste and cattle dung. This reduces the use of firewood and gas cylinders and thus helps reduce deforestation.
The remaining sludge is used as manure on the fields. Garbage is separeted and recycled or composted when possible. The food is mostly grown in our garden without the use of any chemicals and deliciously cooked in Nepali style.
The Annapurna Eco-village is a perfect base for bird watching, butterfly photography, walks to traditional villages or treks to Annapurna Base Camp or Mardi Himal. The perfect place for some meditation or reading a book.
