Hotel is on a 60 degree inclined road which is as wide as a rickshaw! very troublesome to commute with vehicles which most travellers would have. Staff is literally just "stationed" there! they really don't know how to contribute to your trip. Pathetic Food!, rather go out and have momos everyday!.
