The current project site is situated in Thulo Bangthali, a rural village in the Chaurideurali Rural municipality of Kavre District. The site is located at an altitude ranging between 1700-2200 meters and offers stunning views of Mahabharat range and Sailungeshwor Mahadev towards the south.

The community in Thulo Bangthali is diverse, comprising Tamang, Chhetri, Brahmins, Newar, and Bishowkarma ethnic groups. Most of the residents practice Hinduism and Buddhism. Despite a population of around 5000 people, the houses are spread out and appear to be in distant locations, giving the impression of fewer people.

The nearest hospital from the project site is located at a two-hour walking distance, while a basic health post is situated only 30 minutes away.
