The SpaceAvid travelers will choose us for: (a) location and facilities, and (b) team and contacts.
(a) We are located in Bhattedanda, which is a serene, peaceful Tamang community about twenty minutes walk from the town of Dhulikhel. The accommodation is relaxed and homely, and offers possibilities to explore the surroundings through day hikes, bike rides, farm visits, old town tours, and local ethnic Newari cuisine.
(b) We are rooted in original Nepal. Your hosts, Sherpa and Shah, both in their 20s, have traveled widely and have friends in villages and towns across the country. With their help, you will be able to access all travel and learning opportunities during your stay in Nepal. Guest AccessGuests have access to a fully equipped kitchen, shared bathroom, rooftop, living and dining area, library, and open green space.
We will also have a cooler with different drinks in your private room. Breakfast is American style, and Nepali cuisine will be served for lunch and dinner. You can also camp out in our green space and soak in the Dhulikhel sun. Interaction with GuestsSherpaShah is run by two friends who have passion for travel and social change. We love to meet travelers and chat when we are not busy with our professional work. Sherpa and/or Shah will be present in our B&B at least two weeks a month.
Sherpa flies aircrafts to the remote locations in far-west Nepal and works with a team of youth volunteers to cultivate compassion through giving and reflection. Shah experiments with farming/building in a research campus in Dhulikhel and occasionally organizes experiential education programs across Nepal. The NeighborhoodThe neighborhood of Bhattedanda is calm but fun. Along the dirt road are small tea-shops and guest houses, and, walking down the hill into the village, family farms are visible from the path. People of different ethnicities and castes call this neighborhood their home. Getting AroundWe will provide you access to bicycles, which, along with walking, are the best way to explore Dhulikhel. From the main town of Dhulikhel, you can easily get public buses to Kathmandu Valley (one hour ride) and all other destinations thereafter.
We also offer you car rides from and to the airport in Kathmandu. These rides cost 25 USD and are usually one hour long.
