Panauti is a historical and hidden gem of Nepal. History mentions, in early 18th century then king of Bhaktapur gifted Panauti state as a dowry to his sister. As time goes by, Panauti still holds an apex reputation for its beautiful temples, arts & crafts, festivals, and tradition.  Panauti nestles at the confluence of two religious rivers Rosi and Punyamati.  It is substantially a pious city. In Nepalese culture, people put strong faith in bathing, or simply, visiting these sacred rivers wipes off the anxieties and sins. On special occasions, people pay their visit to Panauti from the different corners of Nepal, as a tribute to the Holy River and to the city itself. But every now and then, devotees are normally seen by the river – worshiping for their family and for themselves.


Panauti Community Homestay offers comfortable and well-furnished rooms, and modern bathrooms with hot water facility. Meals are cooked by the host family and any interested individual is more than welcome to join cooking with locals. A predominantly Newar community, Panauti offers one of the delicious cuisines and architectures of Nepal. Once a royal dowry, this city is a beautiful hamlet which residents still believe in traditional hospitality, manners, and admiration.


Panauti Community Homestay provides a platform to women with a sustainable source of income. This project is, basically, based upon “About Women By Women”.  This project will bring new hopes and confidence among women. As to converse with guests, local women, who had never been to school, are now learning English language.
The host family is also the potential guide for any incoming guests. Since hosts are learning English, it would be easy for guests to understand the particular culture better and, on the other hand, our local will also get a chance to have a slightest glance into the Western Culture.
