What Is Agro tourism/Hariyali Bahu Uddeshiya?

Hariyali Bahu Uddeshiya Agriculture and Animal Farm is an outstanding firm company that integrates the principles of sustainable agriculture and animal farming. The company advances ecological harmony, rural development, and community development through animal welfare standards, sustainable practices, product quality, and safety. Moreover, this volunteering package is based in the Gorkha district, located in Northern Nepal. 

Hariyali Bahu Uddeshiya volunteer program takes place in the rural village of Gorkha in northern Nepal, where you will work alongside many local families. Normal working days start quite early, around 7 am. Volunteers work until the lunch break and then resume their work at around 5 pm. It's crucial to keep in mind that sometimes to walk from the place where you will be staying to the area where you will be working.  After having breakfast in Kathmandu, start your journey by heading towards the west from the valley. Enjoy the scenic views of the lush, rolling hills and valleys while driving . After six hours of driving through several farming villages and cities, the route reaches Gorkha Bazar, the administrative headquarter of the Gorkha district. This city was previously known as Prithvi Narayan Municipality and was named after King Prithvi Narayan Shah. However, in 2009, the name was changed to the Gorkha municipality. 

Agro-tourism examples:

Some major animal husbandry carried out by Hariyali Bahu Uddeshiya Krishi Tatha Pashupanchhi farm are;

Goat rearing:  Goat rearing has been flourishing in Nepal as a result of the rising demand for goat meat and milk. The topographical landscape of the nation is suited for producing goats, making it a prime location for industrial goat farming.
The farm at Hariyali Bahu Uddeshiya Krishi Tatha Pashupanchhi has been primarily raising goats and specializing in goat husbandry. They are mostly raised for meat, while other valuable byproducts from these animals include dung, fiber from goats, and wool from sheep. Moreover, the organization has been providing many families in Gorkha with a healthy supply of milk without having to drive to the grocery store. 

Buffalo Rearing; In Nepal, rearing buffaloes is a profitable business with great potential for creating jobs and money for the local population. Buffalo is a versatile mammal that produces milk, meat, skin, and manure. Buffalo is the main livestock product in Nepal, producing more than one-third of the country's meat and more than half of its milk.
Hariyali Bahu Uddeshiya Krishi Tatha Pashupanchhi Farm has been rearing buffalo for producing meat, horns, hides, milk, butterfat, and power, as well as for plowing and transporting people and crops. This organization has been providing various quality buffalo products to the people of Gorkha-1 Municipality at affordable prices.

Fish farming: Fish farming is one of the flourishing occupations in Nepal. In various regions of the nation, the soil type and climate are also appropriate for the construction of fish ponds and these farmed fish provides high-quality protein for human needs. There are more than 6000 rivers in Nepal that provide freshwater resources for fish farming, and Gorkha is one such region. 
Since the demand for fish has been increasing in the country, Hariyali Bahu Uddeshiya Krishi Tatha Pashupanchhi Farm has been doing a lot of fish production lately. Since the country's fish production has not met its fish consumption demand, the import of fish is in increasing trends. As a result, Hariyali Bahu Uddeshiya has been actively engaged in the fish farming industry to meet the demand and benefit the local farmers.  All in all, the importance of agro-tourism is very high is agriculture based countries like Nepal. 

If you are interested in visiting or learning more about Hariyali Bahu Uddeshiya Krishi Tatha Pashupanchhi farm in Gorkha, I suggest getting in touch with our regional agricultural groups, government agricultural departments, or tourism agencies. We'll do our best to give you more detailed information on the farms and agricultural projects in Gorkha.

Trip Itinerary

Day 1 : Arrival in Kathmandu 1,320 m and transfer to hotel.

After you arrive at the international terminal of Kathmandu airport, you will be warmly welcomed by our company representative. You will be picked up from the airport and taken to a hotel by the Himalayan Forever staff. When you arrive at the hotel, check out your incredible rooms, and then, once you've had a chance to rest, visit the Himalayan Forever office for a meeting. 

Day 2 : Kathmandu sightseeing tour and trip preparation.

There are several landmarks and monuments within Kathmandu valley. This city holds seven UNESCO listed world heritage sites within a radius of 20km. This comprises the Pashupatinath Temple, Boudhanath Stupa, Swayambhunath Stupa, the durbar squares of Kathmandu, Bhaktapur, and Lalitpur, among many other places. We can visit these locations or any other location of your choice. 

Kathmandu Durbar Square:

Kathmandu Durbar Square, also known as Hanuman Dhoka Square, stands as a testament to the city's royal history. Surrounded by ancient palaces, courtyards, and temples, this UNESCO World Heritage Site encapsulates centuries of Nepalese architecture. The square served as the royal palace for the Malla kings and later the Shah dynasty.

Upon entering, visitors are greeted by the magnificent Hanuman Dhoka Palace, a complex adorned with intricately carved wooden windows and doors. The Kumari Ghar, home to the living goddess Kumari, adds an air of mystique to the square. The Kumari, a prepubescent girl chosen as the living embodiment of the goddess Taleju, occasionally makes appearances at her window, captivating onlookers.

Exploring the narrow alleys surrounding the square reveals hidden courtyards, shrines, and vendors selling traditional artifacts. The combination of historical charm and vibrant street life makes Kathmandu Durbar Square an unforgettable destination.

Pashupati Nath:

A short journey eastward leads to the sacred grounds of Pashupati Nath, one of the holiest Hindu temples in the world. Nestled on the banks of the Bagmati River, Pashupati Nath is dedicated to Lord Shiva and draws pilgrims from across the globe.

The main temple, adorned with intricate wood carvings and golden spires, stands as the focal point of the complex. Only Hindus are allowed into the inner sanctum, but visitors can witness the rituals and ceremonies from the eastern bank of the river. The atmosphere is infused with spirituality as devotees perform rituals, sadhus (holy men) meditate, and the scent of incense wafts through the air.

Pashupati Nath is not only a religious site but also a reflection of Nepal's rich architectural heritage. The surrounding area, with its ancient statues, shrines, and ghats, provides a serene backdrop to this spiritual haven.


Heading northeast from Pashupati Nath, the journey culminates at the iconic Boudha Stupa, a symbol of Buddhism and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The colossal white dome, adorned with the watchful eyes of the Buddha, dominates the landscape, creating a serene and contemplative ambiance.

The Boudha Stupa is encircled by a bustling market, where locals and tourists alike peruse a plethora of shops offering Tibetan artifacts, prayer flags, and traditional handicrafts. The rhythmic prayer chants, the spinning of prayer wheels, and the fluttering of colorful flags create a mesmerizing atmosphere.

The stupa itself is a marvel of symmetry and symbolism. Pilgrims circumambulate the structure, spinning prayer wheels and offering prayers, while monks in nearby monasteries engage in their daily rituals. As the sun sets, the stupa is illuminated, casting a tranquil glow that adds to the spiritual aura.

Day 3 : Drive to Chhapthok(1530M) via Gorkha Bazar- 6 hours

After having breakfast in Kathmandu, start your journey by heading towards the west from the valley. The route passes through several farming villages and cities, and travelers may see several snow-capped peaks in the northwestern direction. The route continues on through twisting hills until it reaches Gorkha Bazar, the headquarter of the Gorkha district. This region is the gateway to entering Gorkha and is the starting point for several world's renowned mountain trekking routes likes Mount Manaslu and Mount Ganesh trekking route.

Take a short refreshing break at Gorkha Bazar, and then drive uphill for around 1.5 hours before you finally reach Chhapthok. It is a small local village in Gorkha situated nearby to the localities of Thulo Darbung and Dadagaun. Chhapthok is the ultimate destination of our trip as all our volunteering activities will be carried out in this place. 

Day 4 : Beginning of volunteering work depends on your time limit

From this day, we start our agro-farming volunteering work. Normal working days start quite early, around 7 am. Volunteers work until the lunch break and then resume their work at around 5 pm.

(Important note: Volunteers can stay in Chhapthok as long as they want and can contribute to the agriculture and farming there. Thus, there is no time barrier and volunteers can work for any numbers of day as per their convenience.)
