    Near restaurants and good breakfast outlets...


    Never stayed, but surveyed this hotel on behalf of somebody else, and this somebody stayed here and was satisfied. Good accomodation and service, no complaints.

    Unique Quality: Incorporated with the German Bakery, the Agni bar and a restaurant and some other nice facilities up in Thamel a short walk up from KTM Guest House.

Buying/renting trekking gear

by kamikazeblue

I am doing the base camp Everest trek as part of my round the world trip and as I am going on to some very hot countries, im planning to ditch the majority of my trekking gear.

Can anyone reccommend somewhere where I can buy or rent things like a coat, fleece, walking poles and sleeping bag? And more importantly, how much will they cost?

Also if I do buy instead of renting, is there maybe a charity or somewhere worthwhile I could give my gear to?

Re: Buying/renting trekking gear

by into-thin-air

Both Kathmandu and Pokhara are full of trekking gear shops and most of these both rent as well as sell gear, I have listed my own personal favourite on my Nepal Shopping Tips page as well as given ideas of what is best to buy in Nepal and what is best to take with you.
As for how to dispose of excess kit after trekking, a lot of people make presents to their guides or porters, if you aren’t using staff then contact one of the Nepali based charities when you are there, then you can see where things are going.

I hope that helps a little but If you need more info then feel free to drop me a line
Happy Travels

Re: Buying/renting trekking gear

by itrek

Nepal is probably the cheapest place in the world to buy trekking gear. Ask the shops that sell the gear if they could rent it to you. I know a lady that runs an orphanage in Kathmandu, her name is Bina Tamang and she also tries to develop tourism in her native village. I am sure the gear would be useful to her (mob. no. 9841306367 or 9841694658). You can take the gear to New Orleans cafe (Thamel, opposite Kathmandu Guest House) where her husband Hom Prasad Rai has been working as a waiter for a many years.

Travel Tips for Kathmandu

Strolling - Market place

by SLLiew

At the Katmandu's open plazas, you will see the market places in the mornings.

Selling all kinds of local vegetable, fruits and farm produces.

Remember to wash your fruits well before peeling and cooked the vegetables well if you are into buying your own food and preparing them for consumption.

Turning the wheels of life

by SLLiew

At some of the market square, there is a row of bronze wheels that can be rotated by running one hands over them.

Observed that the locals will run over them as they walk by.

Both Buddhism and Hinduism have similar roots and believe in reincarnation and obtaining good deeds and merits in this life.

What Is There to Shop In Kathmandu? -3

by goutammitra about Mithila Art.

Mithila Art or Madhubani art is also one of the better buys. Mithila is now located in the State of Bihar, India and is very famous for its typical style of Art and Painting. If you buy something from them it will be helping a poor artisan as well as good buy for your house. You can buy a decoration piece, a mirror, a painting, or so on. Look at the photographs in detail for selection of article.
A word of caution: Please bargain for the correct price. Start with 30% price of what they quote you will settle at some point. Please remember these shops are not owned by the artisans but the businessman who is there to make profit. They buy the articles from the poor artisans and then make the killing. So remember whatever you do to help only a fraction of the amount will go to the artisans.

Kathmandu - Bhaktapur

by josephescu

I was sick that day (diarrhoea from earlier meals in Chitwan) and spent almost all morning in the hotel in Kathmandu. Feeling a little better in the afternoon, I insisted on seeing Bhaktapur, although it was getting really late.

So we rented a cab to take us from Kathmandu to Bhaktapur, wait 2 hours and then back to Kathmandu. The whole thing was 600 rupees, after a little bargain and jokes on the continuous rises in taxi fares around the valley.

We caught the rush hour traffic back to Kathmandu, so the 30 minutes ride to Bhaktapur transformed into an agonising hour on the way back (with me being still sick :-))))

Garden Restaurant

by WaRPer about Delima Garden Cafe and Restaurant

Really nice, relax garden restaurant with variety of seating areas to choose from. From indoor sofa seats, rooftop tables and ones under small trees in the middle of the court. The restaurant is very famous for its breakfast, as many foreigners come in and out discussing their “plan of the day”, or hanging for hours reading books. The BF ranges from 65-200 Rupees. Lunch is served after exact 12 p.m. I had a "Steak Breakfast"; 2 slices of toast with butter/marmalade, 2 eggs (any style), a small lumb of meat (buff meat I guess!), stir-fried potatoes and a huge cup of tea or coffee.
