On our last day in Nepal, we were booked at Kantipur Temple House in Thamel Kathmandu. It is walking distance to the shopping center and night life of Thamel, but at the same time, quite situated away from the chaos which was just perfect.
After our long drive from Pokhara and exploring the places on the way like Bandipur and the Trisuli River, Niraj of Himalayan Encounters invited us for...
Nepal is a great place to be at. Whether you’re looking for an adventure, retreat, discovering a new place and it’s people, a photogenic landscape you can capture, explore your inner being and know about a great culture, then Nepal is definitely a place you need to visit!

It was a bit tiring going to different airports and riding different flights. Although, it also feels awesome that I am able to do this!

It took us about 10-15 mins from our Hotel Dwarika’s to Boudha Stupa despite the traffic.
If you are a Filipino, you’re already used to this traffic. But You’d have to be careful and look left and right. They drive on the left side of the road.

Great Culture, Friendly People
Nepal is a great place to visit! It is very rich in culture. The people here are very friendly and helpful and they live simple lives.
Healthy People and Preserved Culture
One thing I noticed is that I haven’t seen any much obese Nepalese person yet. I am amazed and I think I know why. Nepal’s culture is well preserved. You can see it in the...
It has always been disorienting for me to travel in different time zones especially when my phone doesn’t automatically update the clock settings!
Anyway, I couldn’t care much about the time anyway. It sort of stopped for me right when I saw Mt. Everest by the plane!

And so with Agoda.com,...
