Hi, My name is Kharka. I live at Yakten Village where I have a small homestay. I am a farmer by nature but because of the village tourism promoted in our village, most of us are engaged in this sector with about 7-8 homestays nearby. I love having guests at my place. I like meeting new people and engaging myself with them.
