Printer Version Page

Sirubari village is one of the most popular and attractive villages located in Syangja district of Nepal, southwest from Pokhara. Approximately six hours of drive from Pokhara will take you to this beautiful village.
 
Sirubari village has south facing slope and is situated at an altitude of 1,500m above sea level. The village is mostly inhabited by Gurung community (one of the ethnic groups of Nepal). This village tour offers one to experience real rural life along with observing culture, lifestyles, traditions, customs and rituals of Nepalese. Beside the cultural part, the tour also provides stunning views of Annapurna Himalayan range including Mount Annapurna, Mount Dhaulagiri, Mount Machhapuchhre and other peaks, forests, rivers, lakes etc. 
 
Sirubari is distinguished from its colorful backdrop, tidiness and cleanliness compared to other villages and is often known as compact farming community village because of its ideal climate at all times of the year. Locals will definitely charm you with their warm and friendly behavior. They are well educated and are enthusiastic about tourism. The unique attraction of Sirubari is the fact that it is a model for growing new trend in tourism in Nepal. In May 2001, Sirubari in conjunction with the Nepal Tourism Board was awarded the PATA Gold Award in recognition of its efforts to preserve the culture and heritage of Nepali rural life.
