final 2 nights in Kathmandu - ideas for where to stay please

hello again

we have planned our trip and are doing 2 days Thamel, then 2 days Pokhara then coming back to Kathmandu for our final 2 days.

What area do you think would be nice for a relaxing final 2 nights before we head home? We don't want to stay in the Thamel area twice so somewhere different please?? Not too busy, but with something to go and look at. We are travelling in Monsoon season.

thanks again.

Despite Narghakot's location it's a bit hit and miss.

If visibility is on your side it's been a good decision, if it ain't then what's the point other than the fact it's v.relaxing?

Stay at Hyatt Regency in Bouddha and evening time Stroll around Boudhanath Stupa.

Patan also very busy.

Bhaktapur- near the main square is fine. But on surroundings still busy. The entrance ticket of Bhaktapur is 15usd.

Or another option can be Nagarkot: Very pleasant and scenic hill station. Can see Sunrise/sunset with snow mountains. But it takes 2hrs drive from central Kathmandu & 1.5 hrs to the Airport from Nagarkot. There are nice hotels.

Enjoy your trip!

For your little kid...just an option where you gotta get out of the city and maybe drive about an hour...check the place Hattiban resort...it's on a ridge overlooking the kathmandu valley with good views of the mountains and the entire valley...a place for him to walk around and enjoy the nature ...just around patan check out Newa Chen...a traditional Newari house converted into a guest house...you will respect the effort put in by the owners to give you an authentic experience!

There is more to see in Patan than the Durbar Square. The Patan Walkabout (available at www.patantours.com/patan-walkabout.html or in PDF form from me -- PM me your email address if interested) is fun to do, for example -- this is north and west of Durbar Square. South is the Mahaboudha temple nepal.com/religious-sites/mahaboudha-temple/, which is very impressive. Also, Patan is a center for Tibetan carpets; we bought 2 from this place http://www.masterweaver.com.np/aboutus.htm and we are very pleased with them (we brought them home in a spare duffel bag, but they can ship as well).

If you choose Patan, the Newa Chen hotel is pretty good -- about 3 minutes walk due north of the Durbar Square. The owner (a retired bank manager) is very helpful.

Hi Robert...glad that you suggested Newa Chen...am glad and I support such properties and the ambience in the evening is just magic...I just don't post on trip advisor without my personal experience and you the first one who suggest such a beautiful property...thank you again and though there are other properties coming already in operation the prices are higher and might say not as authentic as Newa Chen!!!

Thank you once again...Newa Chen deserves to be enlisted amongst the best accommodation in patan and rather say Nepal!
