Kale and Urken

Kale and Urken
Husband, Kale and wife, Urken, together with their children, Pemba Chhirri, Migngmar Gyaijen, and Ngima own this home and most recently have allowed Dendi Lama, his wife and three children to live in the home and farm the land rent free while Kale and his family live and work in and a guesthouse they own in nearby Taksindu.

If the two story house were to be rebuilt, they would want a one story house with one big room for living, including cooking and sleeping.

The guest house operation has been hit very hard by the downturn in tourists resulting from the earthquakes. If they can’t make a living with the guesthouse, Kale and Urken will move back to their homestead to live.
