This year our group coming to Nepal will stay in the Mandala Boutique Hotel; perfectly placed on the cusp of an area called Thamel – with over 100 restaurants of every persuasion to choose from. On the roof terrace of the hotel, perhaps to enjoy a drink, you’ll be able to see the temple of Swayambunath, a Unesco symbol of Nepal, where Buddhist legend tells us Kathmandu was born.
The hotel allows our visitors to walk literally everywhere downtown. Despite being in a quiet enclave, it is just minutes from all that Kathmandu has to offer. Markets and bazaars are on your doorstep, and you can choose to eat anything around here; from traditional food to Indian, Chinese/ Tibetan to a burger or chicken & chips – we can show you where.
After the exhilaration of Kathmandu, we’ll move to a medieval town of complete contrast. Staying in a simple guest house, the city of Bhaktapur closes down by 9pm, and is largely under candle light. We will get our group a special visa to go there, as the whole town it is protected as a place of unique world heritage. It’s like stepping back in time.
