Couple Traveller

Nilam and his employees are most friendly and super helpful. Because of them my stay in Nepal, and mainly in Kathmandu, felt like home and they made it more special. In Kathmandu I stayed in their inn and Bistro in Kopan and it was so nice to escape the touristy buisiness in Thamel and really enjoy the silence while Beijing close to Kopan monastry and bouddhanath. Naz, the host, was amazing. Nilam always had good advise and he is very thrustworthy, inspiring and he works super hard to show people the best of his country while also helping the village he grew up in. It was wonderful to meet him and his team.
The tamang heritage trial was really beautiful. Since I already Did the annapurna circuit I was Looking for a more cultural experience and the trail was perfect for that. The Tamang are beautiful, welcoming and are working super hard to rebuild after the earthquake. My guide, Shiva, was super kind and knowledgable and we had a great time.
