LOCAL FARM STAY TOUR
If you would like a truly Bhutanese authentic experience, we can arrange a personalized stay with a Bhutanese family in a traditional farmhouse. You will get a unique, up-close look at the Bhutanese way of life and learn firsthand about the culture. The farmhouses are located in a peaceful, picturesque spot just outside of the main town and are within walking distance. The farm houses are Bhutanese traditional houses with just the ground and first floor, where most of the family members stay in same house and practice daily farming activities. Local sleep on floors, use thin mat, mother cooks meal for family members, we sit around the fire and talk with them with handful fried rice and butter tea/ara. Our guests will also spend their night in the farm house to experience the ethnic life of the Bhutanese in the rural areas. Bath rooms shall not be decent, no flash, no hot water, no bath tub, no western toilet but we can have very good experience of local life and that’s how they are groomed off.
The family will set up your bed in the alter room, which is the most sacred room in the house, and you are welcome to meditate in the alter room if it’s your practice. You will enjoy delicious home-made Bhutanese traditional meals (dinner and breakfast) prepared on a traditional stove. If you would like a cooking demonstration/lesson, please let your guide know in advance so he can notify the family. Also, with advance notice, the family can prepare a traditional hot-stone bath for you.
Important to Note: There will not be a private bathroom–you will have to share the family’s facilities.
