Gorkha Village Homestay

Gorkha is a municipality in central Nepal created in 1996. It was initially called Prithibhinarayan after King Prithvi Narayan Shah, who was born in Gorkha and united and founded modern Nepal.

Prince Harry has been crowned honorary head of a village in Nepal, during a visit to a remote part of the country where he spent the night with a Gurkha family.

His tour comes as the country rebuilds following last year’s devastating earthquake which killed more than 8,000 people.
