Agritourism in Nepal

Nepal agritourism information and reviews.

Many people are growing more interested in how their food is produced, or how the population of a foreign country produces food. Agritourism is a style of vacation that normally takes place on a farm, either domestically or abroad.

Agritourism farms in Nepal offer tours to allow a person to view the growing, harvesting, and processing of locally grown foods, such as corn, coconuts, sugar cane, and pineapple. Often the farmers provide a home-stay opportunity and general education on the workings of the farm.

Children who visit the farms often have not seen a live duck, or pig, and have not picked an apple right off the tree. This form of expanded agritourism has given birth to what are often called entertainment farms. These farms cater to the pick-your-own crowd, offering not only regular farm products, but also food, mazes, open-pen animals, train rides, picnic facilities, and pick-your-own produce. In the United States, dude ranches offer tourists the chance to work on cattle ranches and sometimes include cattle drives.

Nepal is a agricultural country. About 80 % of people depend in agriculture. However, the shortage of labor, dependency in rain, traditional farming methods, lack of market have jeopardize agriculture in Nepal. The food scarcity is increasing and farming in many places have become subsistence. Rice is the main staple food. The production of rice is low compared to other rice producing countries.
In this contest, agritourism is something very helpful for local farmers. People can go and stay with local farmers during the main farming seasons and help them do things. In that way they will also learn the traditional farming. The agricultural volunteer creates more manpower for the farmers. Visitors can have their own peace of garden of land as requirement for agricultural research.
farmers are prepared with homestay accommodation that follows hygienic environment of the tourists. The places for agritourism are chosen in such a way that it will have perfect weather and scenery to do hiking and treks. Dates for visitors to arrive are chosen including festivals so the visitors can also have cultural experiences of the area.
Fulkharka is one of such village in northwestern Nepal, which is offering agritourism in Nepal.
