If you want to get away from the crowds in Thamel, but still be in the Kathmandu area then Sanu Guesthouse is only a 15 minute taxi or bus ride away. Run by the friendly Sarita whose smile alone is worth coming for.
Its easy to make silly mistakes when travelling, especially when your going from country to country quickly and it’s your first time away. It’s hard being the perfect backpacker…
Eavesdropping on some other travellers, we heard it would be insanity not to miss the full moon celebrations in Bodhnath.
When you eventually pick a backpack it will be one of the best and most important purchases you’ll make before you leave.
