Namaste Nepal!

For relaxation seekers, Nepal has everything to offer from cozy lodges, delicious momos with local beer, vibrant night markets and sublime graphitties and temple art. Trekking and river rafting are dangerous for a number of seasons. So plan well if you have an adventure trip in mind.

Patan and Bhaktapur are replete with heritage and culture and unravelling the ancient fables through pagodas, stupas and monuments is an intriguing and enlightening experience. Private guides are very knowledgeable and the stories behind wood carvings and symbols will leave you spell bound. Pigeons are everywhere, and flock of pigeons flying in circles calls for a canon shot. The Darbar square and Thamel market in Kathmandu are touristy but impressive.

Room with a view: In Pokhara we chose to stay in a boutique hotel Raniban Retreat nestled in a hilltop surrounded by clouds and snow kissed mountain peaks. The road to heaven is bumpy and if you manage your way up through the 522 steps without a railing, you will be welcomed by a magnificent view of the Himalayan ranges, Pokhara valley and Fewa Lake. Sun rising from the peak of snowy cloud laden mountains was surreal and waking up to this remains the most memorable image from this trip.
