Dwarikas Hotel Kathmandu, Room
Kathmandu

The Dwarika's hotel in Katmandu is a quite special place. Restored Newari architecture and wooden piece work in completion determine this hotel. Bathroom, lined with Himalayas slate, nepalese rice paper on the desk and the minibar in a cupboard from the 13-th century. The rooms equipped are so affectionately that one might no more out. Dwarika Das Shrestha has created a quite special place here. A place, as it nowhere exists in Nepal and in the world.

A wonderful article of Wolfgang Lechner about the hotel has seemed onZeit Online (german) in 2005. 

The hotel is to be reached under http://www.dwarikas.com.

More About Kathmandu

Home to Mt. Everest and a wide range of ethnic groups speaking almost 100 languages and dialects, Nepal is a study in diversity. Climate ranges from sub-tropic to arctic, offering an unparalleled variety of ecosystems – humid plains, tropical jungles, forested hills, frozen valleys, and of course the Himalayas. Hinduism is the major religion although Siddhartha Gautama, the Buddha, was born in the south of the country and Buddhism has a strong tradition in Nepal as well.
