Accommodation Choices in Kathmandu
Kathmandu, like any capital city, has a range of accommodation from cheap and cheerful through to ultimate extravagance. Due to this wide-ranging choice, we don’t automatically include a particular hotel for you before or after your trek, however, we can of course book one for you and would recommend one of the following options. If you would like to follow our recommendation you can add your choice during the booking process:
The Adventure Alternative Guest House (photo below and also the image above is taken from the roof garden): This is our own guest house which offers a home from home experience and is the base for many of our visiting trekkers, climbers and volunteers (who come out with our charity, Moving Mountains). For almost a decade Pasang Sherpa (MD of AA Nepal) and his wife Saraswati and family have welcomed visitors to the Adventure Alternative guest house in Kathmandu where you can enjoy quality home cooking, a warm Sherpa welcome and great company in a secure environment with easy access to the likes of the Thamel District, airport and local amenities. For more details click here. The cost is £15pp/n for B&B.
The Manang Hotel
This hotel is a popular and long-established mid-range, 3-star hotel in the centre of Kathmandu’s tourist hub of Thamel. The rooms are clean and spacious and the hotel has a good restaurant. Otherwise, on its doorstep, you’ll find all of Kathmandu’s famous shops and restaurants. Rooms are £74 per night for a twin or £60 per night for a single, B&B.

Yak and Yeti Hotel
If you would like some luxury before or after your trek then the Yak and Yeti is one of Kathmandu’s most famous hotels. The hotel is a blend of modern day sophistication and cultural heritage with its 100-year-old palace and the newly designed structure of the hotel. You can wander amongst the large grounds past antique fountains, gilded temples and emerald gardens and still be just moments away from the shops and adventure of the city. Rooms start from £155 per night for a twin B&B. Further details including room types and costs can be found by clicking here.
If you're a solo traveller you can book a twin room at the Manang Hotel and we'll allocate a room to you with another member of your trek team (same sex). If, a couple of weeks prior to your trek or climb we have odd numbers, we may need to change you to a single room in which case any additional charges would be added to your account.
Generally, people will arrive in Kathmandu a couple of days before their trek starts to enjoy the city and rest after the journey. We will meet you at the airport and transfer you to your accommodation of choice and make sure you’re settled in. On day two of our advertised itinerary, we’ll meet up for a briefing. We will let you know where we will meet when we transfer you from the airport as it will depend on where people are staying. It will either be at your hotel or our Guest House and we’ll have plenty of time to go over any kit or questions you may have.
We are of course on hand throughout your time in Nepal should you have any questions. If you would like to add accommodation to your booking you can do so by emailing us or adding it to your booking as an ‘Extra’ during the booking process. You can also log into your personal account on our website and add it at a later date.
If you book accommodation outside of the Adventure Alternative booking system please ensure you let us know where you’re staying.
