Hotel Shangri-La

Kathmandu, Nepal

This well-regarded hotel is renowned for its friendly staff and also has two excellent restaurants. The Shangri-La  is located just a 15- to 20-minute walk or a quick tuk-tuk ride from the bustling bazaar of the Thamel district. After a busy day exploring the city, relax in the hotel’s peaceful garden, take a dip in the swimming pool (designed after a traditional Nepali royal bath), or have a drink around the fireplace at the hotel’s cozy Lost Horizon bar. And after the trek, treat yourself to a relaxing massage!
