Adventured to Nagarkot for an overnight with some Airbnb friends. Nagarkot is the “weekend getaway” for Kathmandu residents—it’s a bit out of the valley and has a great view of the Himalayas. We drove halfway there and hiked the rest of the way. It was a 7-mile hike that took us 6 hours. We lollygagged, stopped for chiya, sat in the sun, watched women tend goats, got lost, found a new friend named Long from Vietnam who was also lost, and finally found our way to “The Hotel at the End of the Universe.”
Good beer, better food, nice room, great ambiance. Went to sleep with the greatest anticipation for sunrise the next morning. Alarm went off at 5:30 am and we awoke to… complete cloud cover. Couldn’t even see the building next to you. The Himalayas have tricked me again…but, the company was worth it.
