Culture of Gorkha Dhading Homestay Trek:

A comprehensive cultural immersion into the customs of the local inhabitants in Nepal’s mid-hills is provided by the Gorkha Dhading Homestay Trek experience. The Gurung, Magar, and Tamang ethnic groups, each with unique cultures, languages, and traditions, make up the majority of the population in this area. Homestay hosts invite their guests into their everyday life, giving them a special chance to witness and take part in a variety of cultural customs. Visitors get a firsthand look at rural Nepali life by learning how to make regional cuisine and use traditional farming practices. One of the best things about the area is how friendly the people are, willing to share their rituals, tales, and way of life.

One of the main benefits of the Gorkha Dhading Homestay Trek experience is cultural exchange. It’s possible for guests to take part in or watch customary celebrations, dances, and musical performances. The local communities take great pride in celebrating holidays like Dashain, Tihar, and Maghe Sankranti, which are marked by ornate rituals, colorful decorations, and group feasts. Visitors can also discover more about the area’s spiritual customs, which frequently combine Buddhism and Hinduism and are displayed in the temples and monasteries there. In addition to offering cozy lodging and regional cuisine, the homestay program promotes a greater awareness and respect of the rich cultural legacy of the Dhading and Gorkha regions.


With a wide range of wildlife, the Gorkha Dhading Homestay Trek region—which is tucked away in Nepal’s mid-hills—is a paradise for those who love the outdoors. The region is known for its verdant rivers, terraced fields, and dense forests, all of which provide habitat to a wide variety of plants and animals. The forests support a wide variety of plant species, including wildflowers and medicinal herbs. The oak, pine, and rhododendron trees make up the majority of the forests. Numerous animal species, including barking deer, langur monkeys, and various rodent species, find home in these forests. The area is very attractive to birdwatchers, who can see a variety of songbirds, pheasants, eagles, and Himalayan Monals.

The region’s ecological diversity is further enhanced by the rivers and streams that pass through Dhading and Gorkha. These bodies of water are essential to the surrounding fauna as well as the farming populations. They sustain aquatic life, including fish species like catfish and mahseer, and supply water for the region’s famous terraced rice fields. The agricultural diversity of the region, where people grow a range of crops such rice, maize, millet, and vegetables, is another indication of the biodiversity of the area. These crops are often grown using conventional farming techniques that have no effect on the environment.


The homestay experiences are situated in the Gorkha Dhading region, which has a temperature that varies greatly with the seasons and provides a wide variety of weather conditions all year round. At lower heights, the region has a subtropical climate, and at higher elevations, a temperate environment. The best times to visit are in the spring (March to May) and fall (September to November), when the weather is often moderate and consistent. Daytime highs during these times vary from 15°C to 25°C (59°F to 77°F), which is perfect for hiking and taking in the breathtaking scenery.

The woodlands are alive with springtime blooms, especially rhododendrons, and the skies are usually clear, providing breathtaking vistas of the nearby hills and mountains. On the other hand, the summer monsoon season (June to August) delivers substantial rainfall to the area, which can make routes muddy and treacherous. However, the monsoon rains, which range in temperature from 20°C to 30°C (68°F to 86°F), produce lush, verdant landscapes. High humidity is another characteristic of this season.

Winter (December to February) brings cooler weather, particularly at higher elevations. Daytime highs range from 10°C to 20°C (50°F to 68°F), but evening lows can be as low as freezing. Winter gives clear skies and crisp air, making it possible to see the Himalayas clearly even in spite of the chilly temperature. The Gorkha Dhading Homestay experience is enhanced by the distinct charms of each season, giving guests the freedom to select their ideal time of year to visit.


The Gorkha Dhading Homestay Trek program offers a unique accommodation that combines comfort with cultural immersion, giving visitors a genuine taste of rural Nepali living. Usually maintained by families, the homestays are situated in historic village cottages that have been tastefully renovated to make room for guests without sacrificing their unique appeal. Typically, rooms are modest but cozy, with minimal furnishings and spotless bedding. Common spaces like the dining room and living room are shared by visitors and their host families, which promotes a feeling of community and facilitates deep cross-cultural interactions. While there are differences in the quality of sanitation, many homestays now have better bathrooms and shower areas to cater to visitors’ demands.

Another highlight of the homestays is the food, which is prepared by the hosts using products that are found around and serves Nepali cuisine. A sample of the native food is offered by traditional meals, which frequently consist of dal bhat (lentil soup with rice), vegetables, pickles, and occasionally meat. Having a shared meal with the host family improves the cultural experience because it teaches visitors about regional culinary traditions and eating habits. In addition to the standard conveniences, a Gorkha Dhading homestay offers a genuine window into the customs and way of life of rural Nepal and is characterized by warm hospitality and individualized attention from the host families.


During the Gorkha Dhading Homestay trek, you’ll enjoy delicious meals prepared by the host families. The meals typically consist of authentic Nepalese cuisine, showcasing local flavors and traditional dishes. You’ll have the chance to savor homemade meals made with fresh ingredients sourced from the region. The hosts take pride in offering wholesome and hygienic food that caters to different dietary preferences. It’s a great opportunity to taste local delicacies and experience the culinary traditions of Gorkha and Dhading.


Touch the Himalaya Treks and Expedition provides experienced and knowledgeable guides who accompany you throughout the trek. These guides are familiar with the local culture, trails, and landmarks, and they act as a bridge between you and the host families. They facilitate cultural interactions, help with communication, and ensure your safety and well-being during the trek. The guides share insights about the region, its history, and cultural practices, enhancing your understanding and appreciation of the surroundings.


As with any trek in Nepal, permits are required for the Gorkha Dhading Homestay Trek. Touch the Himalaya Treks and Expedition takes care of obtaining the necessary permits on your behalf. This includes the TIMS (Trekkers’ Information Management System) card and the necessary permits for entering the Gorkha and Dhading regions. Having the permits organized by the trekking company ensures a hassle-free experience, allowing you to focus on enjoying the journey and immersing yourself in the local culture.
