Free day Kathmandu
Our hotel is located right on the edge of the tourist district of Thamel. It is possible to buy in Thamel nearly all the clothing and gear you will need for the journey at a fraction of the cost for similar articles in the West. This free day will give everyone a chance to shop, visit the famous Buddhist stupa at Boudhanath, the monkey temple at Swayambhunath or simply rest.
