family welcome guests into their kitchen and their living space. This

who stay at the ashram can get a taste of authentic yogic lifestyle
along with traditional Nepalese culture.

The ashram provides a few
private rooms and shared dorm room facilities. Availability is based on
current occupancy. There is warm running water for bathing, powered by
