Fodor's Review

An oasis of calm amid this often frantic city, Dwarika's is a little out of the center, but close to important sights, such as Pashupathinath temple and the Buddhist stupa at Bodnath. This lovely building, filled with intricate wooden carvings, is the perfect blend of tradition and luxury. At the center is a garden courtyard, complete with swimming pool and a poolside bar. Rooms are large and well appointed, and the service impeccable. The three restaurants serve both Japanese and Nepalese food, which is tasty, if not exactly cheap. And if just being there isn't pampering enough for you, the hotel's spa and daily yoga classes will complete the job. This may be expensive (by Nepalese standards), but is worth the extra for those that can afford it.

Special Reunions with Cherished Climbing Sherpas

Rather recently (last week) had the supreme honour of seeing and hosting some truly magnificent climbing Sherpas, their families - and some lovely Nepalese friends first encountered back in the 1980s, when I was a member of various 7 and 8 thousand meter climbing expeditions in the Himalayas; Nepal and Tibet. (So special, writing this review from blessed Bhutan.) It was the early 1990s since my last joyous times of Himalayan high-altitude climbing

with said Sherpas; the surviving members, every bit as gracious. As for our chosen Kathmandu lodging of Dwarika's Hotel, well, must confess that was the doing of the mrs., not yours truly. (Reason: almost all of my Himalayan mountaineering expeditions back in the 80's and early 90's entailed stays at the venerable Yak and Yeti.) Will say, Dwarika's came through with flying colours. Our chosen abode was a particular "Heritage Executive Suite", personally recommended for us by my long-time, Kathmandu-based friend, the wondrous "Mr. Depak", a rather well-connected gentleman who was quite instrumental in coordinating our privately organized and funded mountaineering expeditions. [Will add, the primary purpose of this Kathmandu stay was our desire to assist my Nepalese friends in the aftermath of the recent earthquake; we waited to arrive until Mr. Depak thought the timing was right. And to that end, our Kathmandu arrival was most acceptable via SilkAir non-stop, business class service (MI 412) from our home of Singapore. We each brought along supplies (and funds) to assist with their recovery efforts.] Such a special Kathmandu time, will be returning within the year. Savour your Nepalese times.
