My ten-week visit to Nepal was nothing short of remarkable … and I have Mountain View Eco Farm to thank for that. Though my journey to Nepal was not easy, after a few short days I began to really dive in to my role on the farm. I began to learn more about this world and about myself than I ever thought I could. In the morning we would rise ... Read More

Due to the Nepal fuel crisis, I arrived at Mountain View Eco Farm (MVEF) in the late afternoon an hour or so from sundown. My first impression was the incredible view from the hilltop location of MVEF.

I spent 5 weeks at MVEF with Govinda and Chetana, along with my friend Sahana.

The sustainability of the farm itself was also very cool to see – everything that can ... Read More

A real traditional farm with a great consciousness ... Read More

While working here, we still had plenty of time to explore the area and community, visiting local coffee ... Read More

I spent three months on Mountain View Eco Farm and was able to see the farm develop so much over that time. I've witnessed the cycle of vegetables in the garden and seen the chickens begin laying eggs. During my stay, Govinda acquired a milking cow and her calf, 30 new chicks, and also converted the farm to solar power. Govinda also began selling his vegetables and seedlings to other ... Read More

I stayed at the Mountain View Eco Farm for five days. It’s a lovely farm located on the top of a hill with a beautiful view of the Himalayas. All the food served for breakfast, lunch and dinner is all organically grown on site and is delicious. Even the tea is organically grown on site. Helping on the Eco Farm was a lot of fun and a good learning experience ... Read More

It’s really inspirational what you’re doing here, and ... Read More
