Where you’ll be

Pokhara, Nepal

Adam Tribe is a homestead on top of a mountain hill. The nearest neigbours are a one hour walk down the mountain to Makanpur village. The village is clean and the people are friendly. Ask anyone where the trail to Pakhure is, and the smiling reply makes you want to ask again. The mountain Inn is a 2-3 hour walk to Panchassee mountain, a nearby Vedic tradition yearly festival. This is an ancient holy place and where a Vedic hymn was composed: this could be a day-loop trek.
The Mountain Inn has a simple kitchen but professional just like the simplicity of the fundamental-style of rooms. Organic and home made, the food is cooked on an old-fashioned North American wood stove. Here again, the focus is on an inner sustenance and so the menu is not complicated.
The physical exercise and fresh air may bring personal requirements that need to be carried up to the lodge with you. Remember that the nearest shop that sells biscuits, mostly, is a one hour walk through the forest down the mountain. Then you need to walk back.
The rice and vegetables are grown in the fields below the Inn.
The ghee and milk and curd come from the buffalo.
Like the birds and wind, this buffalo calls out to us in the day. But the simple purity of things at the Mountain Inn is found essentially in the mountain spring water.
In Himalayan culture, water is one of the holiest of nature symbols. Some local place names simply describe the quality of water found there. Our water comes from the inside of the sacred divine Himalaya, a goddess conception from a remote antiquity. We drink Her blessings in every glass. The kitchen of the Mountain Inn is there to serve pure water.
In Vedic hymns. From an age that ended 5000 years ago, Mountain-Mother Annapurna provides the food cooked in the kitchen. In the Mandala 5 Sukta 19 hymn of the Rig Veda, Annapurna is described as the “white-shining mother", just the way She looks from the Mountain Inn. Rice is the symbol of also of a spiritual sustenance that Annapurna provides. This perhaps why the local people are happy to eat the same food everyday.
A visit to the Mountain Inn finds oneself focused on an incredible nature experience that surrounds the grassland. The sky, Himalayan mountains and a visually infinite green forest combine to produce a pristine setting that fills something inside. Everything about this visit places oneself in a traditionally divine nature symbolism. The rooms share this divine symbolism on the walls.
The walls were built by hand in the ancient stone and mud mortar style, then covered with an earthen mixture. This hand applied covering produces a visually wavy effect, with the protruding stone ends outlined in magical afternoon shadows. The floor and walls in each room contain that inspiring soft earthen tint that we can recognize as the divine Mother Earth. This is the point about sleeping in Mountain Inn's rooms, as the rooms explore the outside nature experience from a different perspective: one is relaxed and quiet in a room surrounded by the Earth on all sides: Her connection remains!
The simplicity of the rooms brings the mind back to more fundamental things than air-conditioned comfort. The Himalayan symbol for this experience of being surrounded in nature, here being surrounded by earthen walls, is described as “sitting in the lap of the mother" in Vedic chants. In an English translation of Vedic Sanskrit found in Hymns to the Mystic Fire by Sri Aurobindo, these nature images from pre-history are also photographable, for example in the nature symbolism of Annapurna. As the memory of being held in the lap of our human mothers is forever alive in us, there are pre-historic practices of self-discovery based upon it. Welcome home!
A tent is provided in comfort season if you want to sleep with the Earth-Mother.
And just out the guest room doors is a packed earth verandah and awning for meditating on the vastness in front. Five minutes down the slope from where you will sit is a primal rock temple from many thousands of years ago. Sitting there, in front of the Earth-Mother shrine, places the vastness in an inner context. Be careful, She may
return your glances!
The first activity is the climb to the grassland upon which the Mountain Inn sits. PLEASE be ready for a one hour climb at 60 degrees.
Then a rest in Makanpur village occurs before the second one hour climb begins. While the second climb is easier, some degree of physical ability is required. Not mountain-climbing ability, just simple everyday physical fitness is required!
And should you be interested, during this climb some Vedic breathing practices can be attempted so that the noise of the mind fades into the background. Nature experience is not of the mind, so keeping it quiet is helpful. This climb is also within a Himalayan pilgrimage tradition to the summit across the valley from the Inn.
Vedic hymns suggest “churning" the breaths in an association with the old fashioned method of churning butter. There is much that can be learned during this visit. Some fundamental yoga concepts are present in Himalayan nature experience, where tradition says the yoga practices began.
Once settled, there are a number of Mountain Inn nature experiences inside the thick stone property wall: like gardening, cutting firewood or feeding the animals for example. The Mountain Inn is basically an organic Himalayan farm project atop a grassland crest surrounded by jungle in front of Annapurna. For example the chickens are kept inside a house to protect them from eagles and hawks. Village buffalo wander by outside the wall, munching on the growths of this Grassland-Mother. The setting is perfect for the beginning or development of a personal relationship with our divine Earth-Mother, as well as our human womanhood which shares the same symbol in Himalayan society. Bring your mother to update her on the living divine Feminine culture of the holy Himalayas!
Hiking and Treks
There are a variety of local day treks that loop back to the Mountain Inn. Here is another opportunity to experience the forest canopy supplying a sense-experience for the psychological self-discovery practice of “sitting in the “lap of the (Forest) mother". Here also what was learned in the “churning" of the breaths on the original ascent to the Inn can be applied. Nature experience can be as concentrated as a meditation practice when the Himalayan pilgrimage tradition is invoked. It takes practice to watch outside so we don't fall on the forest buffalo trail above the Inn, while at the same time watching our breathing cycle. Mountain-Mother Pilgrimage symbols are found everywhere around.
Pilgrimage to Mountain-Mother Ramchay
Looking across the valley from the Inn, the highest hilltop has a holy summit. This site is from the earliest ages in Himalayan history, and so multiple levels of experience are present. Similarly there are multiple aspects of the original divinity atop this peak. There is an element of education involved in this pilgrimage.
From the Mountain Inn it is about a two hour climb to reach Ramchay. The first hour is mostly upwards on a forest buffalo trail.
The second hour has more open air hiking, following a winding grassland-edged trail. On a clear day this is a perfect setting for a picnic outing. Bring incense. At the site of Ramchay mountain's Mother-Earth holiness, with her primal Rock-Mother near us on the summit, the view calls for a rest and relaxation to allow us to absorb her vastness and beauty attributes.
Here another Himalayan practice of self-discovery is present, named Yantra meditation. In the Vedic period Ramchay was climbed in pilgrimage for the view of Annapurna. Described in the Mandala 5 Sukta 19 hymn, the centered upward pointing peak sitting in the center of Annapurna's “lap" is the focus for this visualization exercise.
If you have an experienced outdoors confidence, the Mountain Inn will draw you a rough map of how to climb Ramchay. If you would feel more comfortable with a guide, the Inn will supply one. The point is that this experience contains things you can take home.
The Farm Animals and Boozi
There are ducks, geese, chickens, rabbits, fish and the buffalo that provide the material for the fields to grow organic food. The fish pond has large catfish who are fed with rice and grains and are happy to fertilize their water so it can be drained onto the fields filled with good things for plant growth. The chickens etc. are not eaten, they die of old age on the Farm. The farm animals also provide
much subject matter for observation, especially Boozi, the young female monkey. If you hike with Rooz of the Mountain Inn, Boozi will accompany you on his shoulder, jumping on and off branches en route.
The Mountain Inn (by invitation only) regularly hosts the Pakhure Backgammon Championship of the World; guests can try their skill. The winner gets a free glass of pure mountain spring water, warmed if requested. Then there is a gaming table that sits very colorfully against the beige tinted earthen covered walls: you may need to pinch yourself when you see it. Try your luck on days when you need a physical rest.

I love living off the grid. "RAW LIFE". If you are thinking of making move or experiencing an off grid homestead lifestyle, I'm the guy to meet. Me and Fatima made the organic farm "Homestead" at 2069 by Nepali Calendar or easy to say 2012, and from that day I became a farmer. We started our farm from scratch in a 20 years abandoned farm at 1715m above the sea level and it took us four years to get to the point that we started to accommodate people and make enough organic food to celebrate sustainable mountain life. We don't have freezer or refrigerator but our food is more fresh than any kind of commercial restaurants. It's called food from the garden to the plate. The water of the farm comes from the spring water source in heart of the forest. It helps to have the performance food at the farm. We cook on wood fire stove and our recipes comes out of the magical farm land. The way we cook is continental. I offer small tour to my farm in the heart of forest in foot of the Himalayas. I also offer jungle trek, night walk, jungle camp and traditional farm training.

During your stay

A visit to Mountain-Inn is for the unique Himalayan nature experience of vastness and beauty. Completely surrounded by forest, but just above the forest on a grassland crest, Mountain-Mother Annapurna is seen. This view is described in Mandala 5 Sukta 19 of the Rig Veda, more than 5000 years old. These associations come with the nature experience. The purpose is not to visit the owners. But they are there to help and serve you, but they are also living here for the nature experience.
