The hotel is very basic but clean and with hot water. It is also in a perfect part of town for restaurants, cafes and walks to sights. Downfall is that the place does not have heating so when it's cold...it's cold. They do rent room heaters but they give off such a glow that you end off turning them off in the middle of the night and they really didn't provide that much heat. They way to go is to ask for a hot water bottle when you are ready to go bed. It kept the bed cosy and warm all night long.

The road was better than I had expected and there were some great views up across the ridges and back down into the valleys. It was amazing how quickly we noticed the changes from Indian to Tibetan and ...
... can see Kanchenjunga in the immediate foreground with such clarity, making it possible to see the base camp and high pass to Tibet trails, makes my chin hurt as I drag it across the floor; but to be able to see the entire Everest range on the left of it and the Bhutan range to the right is completely mind-bending.
Even Prasanth is impressed with how clear the view is, as he has never seen the Bhutan range from ...
... we had been told they sold some of the best and cheapest artisan products. The problem was, no matter which way we walked we just could not find it at all and ended up walking back on ourselves in a big circle.
What we did find was the Mayfair hotel, which looked very swish and also seemed to have Christmas Day dinners available. Although the security guard looked us up and down a bit he soon allowed us through and we ...
... apparently running the show at Hotel Kabur; there was not one sign of anyone else working there. He showed us the rooms, made a few jokes, and we quickly fell in love with the little bugger. He offered us a beer on the balcony overlooking the Kangchenjunga range, as if he was reading our minds. The balcony was enormous and teeming with lovely potted ...
