It started with a traditional home to provide earning opportunity to individuals primarily to the people of rural areas and exploded into a national mission to make the venture of travelers memorable and homely while providing income opportunities to many individuals owning an empty space, spare room and other rental firms.
It all started around a small village of Hunza in 2018 for Founders, Izzat Bibi & Aamir Ali Khan. While witnessing unemployment all over the region, They noticed how the community was struggling to educate their children. They commenced this venture of Chkar.com to provide income opportunities for many individuals who lacked proper employment.
Chkar Lodging and Experiences accommodations have been a hit since the inception. We attempt to create an interconnected community where guests and hosts can relate to each other. Our main goal is to make the journey of travelers more homely and relaxed.
Thus, today more than thousand individuals are utilizing our platform to generate revenue while we also allow the locals to host different experiences to earn more income. We are most thankful for our social media community that grows extensive everyday.
The only thing that led us to initiate this novel initiative was the lack of accommodations for travellers in Hunza. We witnessed travellers who were seeking local accommodations, primarily a traditional home. During summers it gets difficult for the hotel and guest house owners to accommodate such a huge mass. Thus, this thing led us to initiate this novel initiative of Chkar lodging and Experiences.
We witnessed travelers weren’t connecting themselves with the local community. We believe that for a successful and memorable trip it’s important to build the connection between the travellers and the local community. We instigated our initiative to connect the travellers with the local community to make them experience the local culture, food and variant rituals.
To connect people and create a hassle free travel solution.
We help tourists find a home away from home at the best price and provide an opportunity to experience the local culture.
Chkar.com is an online marketplace, enabling people to lease or short rent lodging (Hotels, vacation rentals, homestays, hostel beds ), share experience (Hunting, adventure, climbing and a lot more), events for people to join and unforgettable food tastes through our website and guests can book it.
