Where you are living

Your accommodation will be in a homestay in the area of Bansbari, near the Australian embassy. The house is slightly northeast of the city centre and is large and comfortable with four rooms (three double and one triple), two bathrooms, a large roof terrace and a large garden. The area is safe and quiet and about ten minutes drive from the Tribhuvan Hospital, and a little further to the city centre of Thamel. The large supermarket nearby sells literally everything you may need and there are ATM machines which take Visa and Mastercard. This area of the ring road is about 20 minutes drive from the airport.

It is a lovely quiet area and we offer a buffet breakfast service, lunch and dinner which you can pay for in local currency as and when you need it. Staying in the house is very comfortable, and in the evening you can enjoy time with a Nepalese family (Sarasoti and Pasang have a son called Jubilee, and a daughter called Ellie Dolma) or you can pop into town for dinner and a drink. The rooms are twin or single and there are hot showers, as well as television. It's the perfect place to live and experience a Sherpa homestay while you are working at the hospital.
