We really enjoyed going on this tour. Learning about farming and the tools used, watching the landscape and the animals was a great experience. All our questions were answered at once. Sometimes the transmission was a bit unsteady and wobbly. However, I would strongly recommend the tour for everybody who wants to get an insight into life and living conditions in the Terai in Nepal.

Tharu Farming Tour

A virtual tour in real time. Like I was there! Never realized that planting rize was so intensive. The tour gives a good impression of the proces and farming. The guide has a lot of knowledge. I can recommend you to book this tour or book another tour to experience the daily live.

Almost real Farming Tour

The Farming Tour I did was virtual, but was close to reality. I know this area but never was there in the hot wet summertime. So I could never see the harvest of the rice. This was a new view to me and the guide was telling in detail what happened. I put questions and within one minute they ware answered. As I know from reality the guides are very gentle and hospital. I am going to do another tour and hope more and more people will.

It was an interesting and beautiful tour over the rice fields. The guide told us several things about these fields, like processing and the farmers. You see the locals working on the field. A good impression of the daily life in Nepal. It's a very nice idea to book this virtual tour.
