Experience rural Nepalese lifestyle in the charming village of Changu Narayan, home-place of Nepal's oldest Hindu temple. We’re just a short bus ride from Bhaktapur, with lots of possibilities for hiking, authentic culture and beautiful views.

The space
Village Villa Chambres d'Hote is the perfect place to escape the noise of Kathmandu and enjoy a peaceful rural atmosphere with a local family.

We’ll provide you with a private room with a raised double bed, a single mattress on the floor and great views of the Kathmandu Valley. You can enjoy the sun and fresh air at our nice rooftop-terrace whilst watching authentic rural Nepalese life going on around you. We live on the ground floor, so our guests have their own private space on the first floor and roof-top.

Our house is very peaceful -- the only noises you will hear are the quacking of ducks and bleating of goats!

Guest access
Our house has one room for rent which shares one toilet and shower, just a short walk around the balcony from where the room is located on the first floor. This room has a double bed and single bed as mentioned above, both including blankets and pillows. We have Wi-Fi available for all the rooms.

Included in the price is a Nepalese breakfast (chapatti, eggs and tea). If you wish we also run a restaurant where you can order home-cooked dishes, both Western and Nepalese.

Other things to note
There is a 100 NPR (~1USD) admission fee the first time you enter Changunarayan. You only pay it once and it helps to restore the temple.

We have discounted rates for weekly or monthly stays, please contact us to ask about them.

Changu narayan, Central Region, Nepal

Changu Narayan is a beautiful village. There are no cars, just magnificent views over the Kathmandu Valley towards the Langtang mountains. It's a tranquil place to spend a few days, whilst you enjoy the authentic Nepali village lifestyle.

The ancient temple of Changu Narayan is located on a high hilltop that is also known as Changu or Dolagiri. The temple is surrounded by forest with champak tree and a small village, known as Changu Village. We are about 8 miles east of Kathmandu and a few miles north of Bhaktapur. The Manahara River flows beside the hill. This shrine is dedicated to Lord Visnu and held in especial reverence by the Hindu people. This temple is considered as the oldest temple in Nepal.

Namaste! My name is Dhruba, my family and I welcome you to our village, Changu Narayan, located about 20 km from Kathmandu, home of the oldest Hindou temple of Nepal. It's where I grew up and spent my life with my wife Menuka and our children, who are now studying and working. We like to meet new people and share with them. Here you can experience the authentic life of the village and discover the Nepali culture. Our guests have their own private rooms, bathroom and balcony, and you are welcome to join and share with us as much as you like. Some guests before learnt how to cook Nepalese dishes with Menuka, an amazing cook! If you are interested in gardening, I have a large vegetable garden and would be happy to talk with you about the farming practices of the village. If you are interested in some specific part of Nepalese culture, like art or music, I can help you find the best local places and meet local people. I'm very happy to show guests around the village and guide them, I was a trek guide so I know the best walks nearby. I speak English, and I'm learning French and Italian. Some volunteers are also coming sometimes to help in our garden, in the local school and/or in the village, so if you are interested in staying longer and doing some volunteering, let me know and I'll share the details with you! Hope to see you soon !

During your stay
If you are interested we can teach you how to cook some traditional Nepalese dishes such as Dhaal Baat and Momos. My wife is an excellent cook, and you can learn to cook over a wooden fire in our kitchen.

Please note that this is a rural Nepalese experience, so we have electricity cuts during the day. We don't always have hot water, but my wife is happy to heat water for you to shower with.

Guests can have as much or as little interaction with our family as they like. We are here to make sure that you are comfortable, feel welcome, and get a taste of the peaceful rural life of Nepal. We truly believe in sharing our rich culture with our visitors!
