APRIl 2015 SNAPShOTS OF KaTHMaNDu VAllEY
The photograph on top shows the “Paulines Guesthouse”, a beautifully restored residence in Tokha, a little village north of Kathmandu at the feet of the steep hills of Shivapuri Nagarjun National Park. It was run by some wonderful people and we totally loved the hospitality they offered. To hear then that the guesthouse had not withstood the earthquake was a distressing and almost unbelievable thing. Below are some pictures we took during our stay. Thankfully another accomodation had started up shortly before that, an intimate hotel down town Kathmandu called “Three Rooms by the Paulines“.
There is also the “Lamatar House“, another beautiful—and earthquake resilient—Paulines holiday house, ready to host visitors for quiet stays away from the city (in Lamatar at only 20 min drive from Patan). The property is surrounded by an amazing garden, full of flowers and fruit trees.
