The SpaceTired of the mess and pollution of Kathmandu? This is the alternative: quiet, fresh air, beautiful views, decorated with Himalayan art and antiques. Ideal for relaxation, yoga and spiritual retreats but also perfect for visiting the Valley of Kathmandu. The apartment consists of one double bedroom, one huge sitting/dining area with access to the attic where 1 or 2 can sleep on mattresses. Alternatively, the sofa is a sofa-bed. There are 2 bathrooms, 1 kitchen and 3 private sitting areas outside. Guest AccessGuests will have access to the extensive grounds of Chandra Ban Eco-Resort, including the dining areas where they can book in for a delicious home-style breakfast, lunch and dinner. Fixed menu meals will be served in the dining room on the ground floor or on the adjoining terrace or in the garden. We take into consideration our guests' preferences eg. vegetarian or non-veg. Interaction with GuestsWe live in the Main Building of Chandra-Ban Eco-Resort so we are there to welcome our guests and we sleep there every night and are mostly around during the day. If not, there is always a member of staff who can answer questions. The NeighborhoodThe apartment is directly under the forest of the Shivapuri National Park on the North side of the Kathmandu Valley. Going behind our neighbour's house one is directly inside the forest and climbing into the National Park, where there are many trails including visiting the local Thamang village of Tarabir, the Buddhist nunnery of Nagi Gompa, the Shivapuri peak and Bagdwar, the source of Bagmati River.
20 minutes walk down to the bazaar of Budhanilkhanta, there is the ancient Hindu statue of Sleeping Vishnu.
If you can tear yourself away from the peace and quiet, hire a taxi or jeep and visit the sights of the Valley, from Swayambhu, to Boudha to Patan.
Getting AroundPublic transport is available from the main bazaar of Budhanilkhanta, about 20 minutes walk from the apartment, or local taxis can be called to take guests around the Valley. Other Things to NoteWe are not in Thamel, the main tourist area, so there are no bars or discos close by!
