  • Jasmine Walls, and Deep Jade, the Depths

    Nina Merz

    Take a quiet moment to sit and reflect in the stillness as the sun slowly sets. The sun is going down, it sets fire to the water where they meet. Orange smudges into the still green water, disturbed only by ripples from a fish’s tail. There is serenity in

    A Japanese inspired resort with a 180° panoramic Himalayan view My journey to Hananoie [Han-a-noy-ee] Permaculture Resort began the previous morning as I left Pokhara to make my way first to Tsukinoie Hotel in Dhampus, a peaceful and friendly village at the base of the Annapurna range.

    Words Evangeline Neve

      A hike up an old trail to a historical hamlet leads to a peaceful and relaxed overnight stopover.   Sitting on the rooftop of The Old Inn in Bandipur, gazing out at the amazing view and basking in the tangible serenity, I simply couldn’t believe that

  • Where am I? "Deviate from the Usual"

    Miya Bajracharya

    I feel it’s quite unfair for Thamel to be known only for tourism reasons. However, it is true that Thamel was one of the places that boosted Nepal’s tourism. And perhaps that is why this place has still hidden itself from all the hubbub of Thamel’s popularity.

  • Temptations at Temptino

    Newly opened Temptino makes quite a first impression. This restaurant is a new franchise of Ghangri Café serving Italian, continental and many more.  Its chill ambience and great selection of food is bringing a little bit of Italy to Kathmandu. We began with Gamberi Salsa Piccante—prawn with a creamy
