Kathmandu, Nepal

We stayed there for only 3 days in December, but it was great. Temperature was around 8 degrees.  Flight from Abu Dhabi to Kathmandu is around 4 hours, visa on arrival. We took taxi from airport to Thamel, where our hotel was. Kathmandu is not clean and it’s very crowded, but our hotel was nice.

Close to our hotel was small Italian restaurant with nice food. I couldn’t eat anywhere else, it wasn’t clean enough.

Garden of dreams is also in Thamel. Beautiful garden with squirrels.


Place where you can hide from crowd and noise and relax.

On the second day we went to Kopan monastery. It is located in the hills, near Kathmandu. Tibetan Buddhist monastery where hundreds of monks and nuns live. We met wonderful nun who guide us through meditation and fundamentals of Buddhism. After meditation and walk on their beautiful garden, we enjoyed in view from monastery to the valley and vegetarian food.
There are many videos about this monastery.

Last night we spent in hotel in the Himalayas. Hotel was very dirty and cold, but that was the most beautiful sunrise. We woke up at 4.30 a.m. and watch the Sun rising and shining on the tops of the Himalayas. Camera couldn’t catch that right. Some things you have to see by yourself.
