Their ethos is to “Create a better world, a fairer world and a healthier world” through providing education and training for the local community whilst bringing visitors to the area closer to nature and reignite a passion for organic food to benefit their overall wellbeing. They work with local farmers to grow organic and sustainably grown herbs which are then used to produce natural herbal products.
As well as providing tourists with a unique experience in a peaceful rural community Herb Nepal also create a range of herbal products called Koseli (“Gift” in Nepali).
