Adventure trip to Bhaktapur

A travel blog entry by niomioconnor


Today was another eventful crazy day in the life of Niomi and Anna. After a lovely breakfast in our amazing hostel garden, where we got chatting to a lad from Manchester who has been travelling since January, we set off towards city centre to find a cash mashine. Eventually after we managed to withdraw money and find the bus stop (this was quite a …

Nepal - Kicking Round Kathmandu

Kathmandu - Visit 1 (29th Sept - 5th October)

I think the arrival in Nepal was one of the biggest shocks so far for me in regards to going from one culture to another! Coming over the border that morning we were leaving pretty hectic narrow streets full of people and vehicles as usual - however, the roads were concrete at least. Walking …

Teachings & more Nepali culture

A travel blog entry by usupandaway


As we are running out of time, we still need exploring the Kathmandu valley. An important entrepôt on the trade route from India to Tibet, the Kathmandu Valley has long been a cultural and racial melting pot, with migrations from all directions adding to the stew. This fusion has resulted in a unique Newari culture that found its expression in the …

Leaving China behind and now crossing by air the south-east Asian countries of Myanmar and India into Nepal, heading for Kathmandu. Nepal is a landlocked country in Southern Asia, between the Tibet autonomous region of China and India.

The Next Step

I must say I did not expect Kathmandu to be the way it was. For some reason I thought it would be this peaceful city which it wasn't. I however loved Kathmandu and wished I could have spent more time outside the city and done some trekking. I will go back one day and do base camp.

Our flight in was amazing. The weather was clear and you …

    From the very beginning we were treated with great kindness! The atmosphere is great and the owner and all the staff are phenomenal! Very very friendly, always so talkative and making sure you are comfortable and satisfied and have everything you need. They are always offering some tea or coffee and helping you out in any way. Was a lovely surprise that breakfast was included... Simple but very good! The rooms were very nicely decorated and clean and the beds were SO comfy!! I definitely needed a stay like this after some of the places I experienced in China! The location is also great 5 minutes to a bunch of shop filled streets with lots of great restaurants and cafes. Each floor also has a nice balcony to sit and enjoy the sun and mountains! Thanks for the wonderful stay! I would definitely come back!

    We stayed there for some 2 nights before our trek and 2 nights after our trek and were happy with the guesthouse. It lies not in Thamel but some 6 minutes walk outside - still easy to reach! The hotel is run by Khem and he can organise quite everything for you (like every other travel agency in Kathmandu)

    Breakfast is very good and they bring it up to any of the terraces ... which is lovely to sit outside and enjoy it while sun is rising

    Better Off Staying in Inner Thamel

    I booked this place off of Hostelworld and realized once I arrived that I would've been better off just arriving to Thamel and finding a place. There are so many too choose from that are cleaner, more central and more conducive to meeting people. It is up on the 4th floor on the main road into Thamel. Not that clean but staff is nice and they did arrange for airport pick up.

    Elbrus supposedly has the best hot showers in town. They are good enough, but don't expect Western standards. Ale who runs the place is super sweet and helpful as is his side kick Raj. Kam is more of a business man. All of them will happily help you organize any trip you might care for. For local standards it is clean, though it didn't look like the sheets were fresh. So be sure to use your sleeping bag. Internet is painfully slow as everywhere, but available whenever the electricity is not out (which is a total of 7 random hours a day everywhere in Khatmandu). Breakfast is very good. All of our demanding requests were met and we were well taken care of. At this price range, very recommendable.
