Being a tourism destination, Kaulepani village is known for promoting Nepal’s first environment friendly homestays. It was also awarded for having the best environment friendly homestays during the 35th World Tourism Day in 2015. The village has set 18 key indicators to make sure homestay owners meet environmental friendly standards for their operations. Some initiatives that underscore the villagers commitment to the environment are having toilets in all houses, separation of biodegradable and non- biodegradable waste, animal waste management, the use of clean cooking stoves (smokeless) and plantation of fruit trees. Of the 25 houses in the village, 21 households have been engaged in operating their homestay since the last five years. Situated 1,600 m above sea level, the village provides a clear panoramic view of sections of the Himalayas namely Machhapuchhre, Manaslu, Annapurna and Harka Gurung peaks. Women in the village are active and the Sheer Khola mother’s group have built a community building. Visitors to the village are welcomed through song and dances as well as by placing an amulet which is prayed for good luck and security around the neck. Kaulepani and its surroundings are famous for their natural environment including the Kaule river, historical monuments as well as archeological sites. A package for visitors which include accommodation, three meals and cultural activities would approximately cost nine hundred Nepalese rupees (US$ 9).
