We had such a slow start to the day that we actually misplaced an hour of time - or misread our watches. The small hotel provided a delicious breakfast including the lightest pancakes with great honey and crispy kulcha - a fried indian bread - as just a couple of the breakfast courses.
It felt great to be in a much quieter, cleaner location, with the nepalese influence clearly evident in the style of housing. We took ...
