The meaning behind the Harmonious Friends Theme :
The 4 Harmonious Friends is often painted to adorn thangkas, door curtains, tables, vessels and walls of Buddhist temples and homes. It is believed that wherever this picture is displayed, the wholesome deeds of its beholders and the harmony among them will increase, making much auspiciousness available. There will be no discord or separation between family and friends too, as the picture is a powerful reminder of how we should stay together to help one another. As we all have varying strengths and weaknesses, we can complement one another to accomplish that which we could never achieve alone.

We reached Kathmandu quite late at night, however, the host was very helpful with the check-in (It was an easy peezy check-in, loved it!) also helped us with our heavy luggages!!! Rahul's place is one of the most beautifully decorated places I have ever stayed in Kathmandu, Nepal. (My 3rd visit to Nepal). Its both traditional and simplistic. Coming from Newyork with all the hustle and bustle, Rahul's place was a retreat for me and my family. Located in a very beautiful setting overlooking the Beautiful valley and the Swoyambhunath Stupa, one could connect with their own inner soul and relax. There is lush greenery everywhere. Every morning we used to go around the Stupa area for morning walk and coffee, afternoon we took the public transport/taxi to go to Dubarmarg and Thamel area for shopping and restaurants. (takes about 10-15 minutes drive from the place, $2.5 for a taxi and $0.30 cents using public transport, however I would recommend taxi for ease and quicker commute) There are many restaurants around the place including chinese, thai, korean, indian cuisines. The light breakfast provided is more than enough to jump start our day. The place is brand new, it was very clean and tidy. The whole apartment is decorated with beautiful Tibetan furniture, which in opinion looked very bold and beautiful. Highly recommend this brand new place for anyone looking to visit Kathmandu, Nepal. Its a very touristic place with amazing scenery. The host Rahul and Tina both are very helpful and are very well spoken. Will defo with this place again!

Hi Travelers!

I am Rahul Gurung, an avid traveler from the Himalayas. I was born in Kathmandu, Nepal but have been travelling the world, experiencing new cultures and meeting people from all walks of life.
I completed my Bachelor's in Business Administration from Stratford University in New Delhi and then moved to Gold Coast, Australia to pursue my Master's of Business Degree at Bond University.
While in Australia, I had the opportunity to work at the World's first fashion hotel Palazzo Versace, a 6 star property where I gained experiences in Hospitality, Marketing & Management. After almost 3 years in Australia, I decided to return to my beautiful country and pursue a more challenging route to entrepreneurship.
One of the ventures that I have started is a Tibetan themed Air-BnB in Kathmandu, Nepal known as 'Karma Suites'. It is a calm, quiet, traditional yet modern oasis away from the hustle-and-bustle of Thamel. (10 mins drive from my place). The apartment is very spacious, bright, spotless and full of natural light.
I would see my place as the best kept secret in Kathmandu, Nepal as it is directly looking at the Swoyambhu Nath Stupa 'Monkey Temple', situated in the heart of the hills with lush greenery and furnished with all different Tibetan furniture and rare antiques.
I run this BnB business so that I get to meet the global citizens of the world and to travel to new places because I believe the world is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page.

Thank you and Hope to see you soon!
