Ready to discover Nepal, even though you cannot travel now?
Experience Nepal online and support a local host
On the 24th of March 2020 Nepal announced a national lock down, due to the threat of COVID-19. From that day on international travel has been halted and it is to expect that it will take sevarl months before Nepal can welcome tourists again. It means that many people who are working in the tourism sector in Nepal have lost their jobs. Usually no job means: no income.
Together with tour operator travel Nepal from the Netherlands, Bardia Homestay started the plaform MyNepal.online. The platform aims to connect Nepalese people working in tourism with online travelers who feel connected with or want to experience Nepal virtually. On the platform we offer virtual tours and classes to travelers who want to learn more about the nature and culture of Nepal and / or who feel connect to support a local host and his communities. Our guides love to get back to work sharing their knowledge and passion, developing new skills and generating an income for their family. Virtual tours offer them this opportunity.
Virtual tours and classes
Travels from Europe and hosts from Western Nepal can meet eachother in a virtual tour. Experience the Tharu culture, learn about the tiger and wildlife in Bardia National Park or expand your cooking skills with a cooking class Dal Bhat.
