    An overview of the Homestay Trek with airport to airport service

    Day 1 - Arrive

    Arrive into the Kathmandu International Airport and after picking up your bags and exiting the building you’ll be greeted by one of our Five14 staff, holding our signature sign for you to recognize. We’ll take you in our 6 seater jeep to our bed & breakfast. The bed & breakfast manager will welcome you, show you to your room, and share a brief orientation with you. Then just relax for the rest of the day or night while enjoying some amazing drinks from our cafe!

    Day 2 - Orientation and Tour

    Wake up and order a complimentary breakfast from our cafe. Afterwards, you’ll meet with your guide for some basic trek preparation. Your guide will inform you of the local customs, history of the village area, show you the mapped out trekking route, and go over a simple packing list. The rest of the day we'll take you on a tour of Kathmandu, where you'll learn about the culture, religion, and social issues the people of Nepal are tackling.

    Day 3 - 6 Homestay Trek

    Check out the interactive map below for a detailed description, altitude changes, and photos of the trek.

    Day 7 - Rest and Debrief

    After eating a complimentary flavorful breakfast back at our cafe, you’ll meet with one of our staff to share quick feedback on your experience. The rest of the day you’ll have time to participate in a nearby day long adventure of mountain biking, bungee jumping, or shopping for memorable souvenirs and gifts.

    Day 8 - Depart

    Whenever your scheduled departure flight is, our company driver will drop you off at the Kathmandu International Airport a few hours beforehand. You’ll be able to say your last goodbyes to our staff or the new friends you’ve made during your stay and we’ll make sure you have everything you need to leave well!

    My experience with Five14 was an amazing one. I'll never forget the natural beauty I was able to enjoy on my trip to Ghyangphedi as well as my host family's generosity. Five14 is doing incredible work for Nepal, and it was an honor to see and be a part of it. I would highly recommend it to anyone!

    It was wonderful. I loved the region, the hiking, and the people - both those who welcomed us into their home and our guides. ​

    Marileen, California

    My experience with Five14 was amazing and life changing. I saw and experienced things I will never forget in the most beautiful country I have ever visited. I would absolutely recommend a visit to Nepal, especially through Five14 so that you would be able to experience so much more and really see the heart of this beautiful county.
