We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here for a few days last February. The staff were great and cheerful and nothing was a bother.

And what a sleep I had after the previous night - 11 blissful ...
After spending Saturday getting lost & wet I figured I would be able to make it to the Monkey temple. I walked down through the main tourist area toward the old part of town and then across a bridge to the outskirts of Kathmandu. It isn't far from where I was staying and on the way I passed a few other shrines and temples. I've realized that I'm not entirely clear where, or if, people distinguish between Hindu shrines & Buddhist ones. I only recognize maybe ...
