Barauli Home Stay, Nepal

Location - Chitwan, Nepal

Baruli is home to the Tharu people, who are a small Indigenous community near the Chitwan national park in Nepal. Chitwan is a popular tourist destination but the Tharu people have never been able to benefit from this due to their distance from the main tourist hotspots in the park.

Royal Mountain Travel developed a community homestay programme in Baruli which gave the Tharu people the chance to welcome travellers into their community to stay and share their culture with them. The homestay project is run entirely by Tharu women, which provides them with an income, but they also save a portion of all profits made from tourisms to invest back into the community for things such as environmental projects and educational scholarships.
