Get the most out of your time and money during your stay in Nepal. Ama is a long-time expat/immigrant to Nepal and our ‘behind the camera’ talent, Sujit, is from the Kathmandu Valley with family roots going back millennia. Together, we will keep you safe and getting the most out of your time in this amazing country.

  Shop Directly From our Artists and Craftsmen

Many tourists wonder how they can help the world to be a better place while they travel. It’s simple. Supporting the art and craft traditions of such a place as Nepal provides all the benefits of a hand-up instead of a hand-out: Pride to be able to support one’s family, the ability to send one’s children to a better school, the ability to provide security for a family. Providing jobs is one of the best ways to grow an economy while getting the bulk of the money directly into the hands of the local people.

Another way to help Nepal

Kay Garnay for Nepal , NGO registered in Nepal, serves to help in a variety of ways. If you are looking for a place to help people, animals or the environment we can help you to find a suitable agency or host you at our home and enable you to put a project together. We have connections to many NGOs in Nepal, so if you’d like something at a monastery, tea plantation project, English tutoring at a government/public school or  internship position let us know and we can help you find something.

Here are a few things we’ve worked with throughout the past 4 years. (Hyperlink)

About Amanda and Sujit ....

Amanda fell in love with Nepal over 9 years ago and never left.  

Sujit was born and raised in Nepal and wants you to enjoy Nepal to the max.

Together Ama and Sujit work hard to show you Nepal from their own perspective.

 Ama’s role is to keep you safe, help you manage your hard-earned money and show you some lovely places that may be missed in many of the guidebooks. 

Sujit does all the editing and videoing. He also serves as a guide and cultural translator for our exploration.

“I’ve been living here in Nepal for 9 years now and learn more every day about Nepal. It’s such a pleasure to be able to live in such a peaceful place. I just love sharing this amazing country with westerners.

“I feel that I’m a very lucky person to have

 been born here in Nepal at this time. 

I love sharing and showing off my beautiful country. 

I’m learning a lot about video shooting and editing for our Youtube channel. I

 hope you enjoy, like and subscribe.”
