About the Series

Our dedication to Responsible Tourism leads us to believe that people who are not yet benefiting from tourism and are marginalised by the mainstream tourism also have a product to sell, and that is interesting for the traveller.

This makes us keep a lookout for the most unique experiences, that we bring together in this series of products - they could be tours, courses, agro-tourism, handicraft tourism, walking with monks and demystifying religion, you name it...

This is our most creative area, and we love it.

Come enjoy our passion for people, culture and nature here.

This was a great experience. I had a lot of fun and learned a lot. If I come back to Kathmandu I will definitely look into make another dish. The chef was very good and a great teacher. I can't think of anything to improve. It was excellent.

Had a great time making mo:mos with Asmita, She was very patient! And an excellent teacher.

The mo:mos were the best we've tried in Kathmandu especially the chocolate mo:mo!

It was a great session.
