    Looking for an opportunity to live with a family and work on a farm during your stay in Nepal? Consider spending time with us at Ajamvari Farm.

    In Nepali, ajamvari means eternal. We chose the name because of our commitment to sustainability, permaculture, and living on the land in a way that builds long-lasting connections in the village and around the world.

    Our farm is located in Gunjangar, a village in Chitwan District in the tarai region of Nepal. It is 150 km from Kathmandu and 15km from Chitwan National Park.

    Staying on our farm, you will have opportunities to learn more about organic farming, experience rural Nepali lifestyles and practice Nepali. Mr. Udaya Raj and Mrs. Sadhana Parajuli and their children Sevika and Subas will be your hosts, providing lively conversation, lots of laughter, and wholesome farm cuisine.

    Our farm is about five acres and has many trees to provide fruit and fodder. Underneath grow pineapples, yams, ginger, sugar cane, and many medicinal herbs. We also have plots for seasonal vegetables, such as mustard greens and cauliflower in the winter and tomatoes and okra in the summer. Rice comes from the old family homestead about a kilometer away.

    We have a comfortable brick house, a wooden shed for buffaloes (which provide milk), goats and chickens. There are also two pigeon roosts which provide a pleasant coooing sound through the day.

    Clean water comes from a well and hand pump. When electricity allows water can pumped through a hose into the house.

    There is also a bio-gas installation fueled by buffalo dung and other waste that provides enough gas for cooking throughout most of the year.
