‘Atithi Debo Bhawah’
Guests are the form of god, according to a common Sanskrit proverb. Nepalese people consider it an honor to have visitors in their homes and treat them as though they were relatives. That is how the idea of a homestay originated.
A homestay is essentially a house that has been transformed into a hotel. Guests are either given their own quarter, valuing their privacy, or they are allowed to join other family members in participating in local customs and traditions.
