Nepal

It’s Another World

MARCH 29 – APRIL 7, 2015

 

Nestled in the Himalayas between China and India, Nepal boasts 8 of the world’s 10 tallest mountains. In 2008 the dynasties of small kingdoms united into a democratic republic. 36% of GDP is from agriculture which employs 76% of the workforce of Nepal’s population of 27 million. The main commodities produced are rice, tea, corn, root crops, water buffalo and small grains. In recent years, tourism has been increasing at an annual rate of 10% which has greatly helped raise living standards here…so let’s take an Agventure here now. After arriving in Kathmandu for two nights you’ll enjoy sightseeing at the UNESCO site of Pashupatinath; one of the most significant temples in the world since Buddhist pilgrimages in the 5th century AD. Hanuman Dhoka Palace Complex was the royal Nepalese residence until the 19th century and is elaborately decorated with wood carvings. Enjoy an optional airplane flight to Mt Everest…an easier way to say you have been to the top of this famous mountain. We then stay 2 nights in the small village of Balthali in the Kavre Distric known for potato farming. The Panauti potato has excellent quality and is also exported to India. Down in the valley, the two rivers Rossi and Ladku Khola support authentic working water mills. This town also offers a splendid view over the Himalaya Range. Then we travel overland to Pokhara for 3 nights’ stay at a hotel overlooking Fewa Lake, Nepal’s largest lake which mirrors the surrounding mountains. On the village outskirts, we’ll get up close and personal with these friendly small farming families growing mainly rice. Chitwan National Park is the place to see animals like the Royal Bengal tiger, one-horned rhinos and a myriad of 450 species of birds, butterflies and 50 mammal species. The Tharu people from this area are noted for traditional dance, songs and colourful costumes. And there is a variety of lowland farming here that we will experience during our 2 day stay in this town. On day 9, we transfer back to Kathmandu and enjoy escorted visits to the markets where Nepalese people sell their local agricultural products, handicrafts, dairy products and many local items. Overnight here and then depart on day 10. It’s another world...don’t pass up this opportunity for an Ag-venture to remember.

Unforgettable Ag-Ventures

These tours are designed for farmers and agri-business people who want to learn "what is really happening" in these countries. In addition to commercial farms and agricultural sites, we visit some of the less known locations and campesino agriculture in Latin America…… the types of places that most people only read about. We expanded the ag-ventures to include Ireland and Kenya and are looking at other countries as well.
