STARVIEW GUEST HOUSE

You'll be happy to know that our guest house held together better than expected. There doesn't seem to be any structural damage. We only have one room to rent until the aftershocks stop completely. Our house cleaner was on the rooftop when the third earthquake stuck; it was quite traumatic. So, we only have the large bedroom on the first floor (up one flight of stairs). The rest are for our volunteers who are here to help our village. It's so nice to have the help and encouragement. If you'd like to give to our project-I don't keep any of the money- here is the link. http://travelstarter.com/projects/nepal_earthquake_restoration_changunarayan_village__project/260

Enjoy a restful stay, with all the comforts of home. We feature lovely views of the Kathmandu Valley’s villages, temples and the Himalayas from your room or our rooftop. We do our best to stay ahead of the water and electric shortages so you can enjoy all Nepal has to offer. Additionally, we have a brand new solar water heater. We even have gas back up for in the winter-just in case.

We are just a few Km. from Bhaktapur, Nagarkot and several other sites on popular trekking routes that include views of Mt. Everest, tea fields, stuppas and temples.

CHANGU NARAYAN TEMPLE
Changu Narayan is one of the most important monuments of Kathmandu Valley, situated 18 Km east of Kathmandu city. This monument is significant from historical, artistic, religious, cultural and archaeological view point. This is one of the seven world heritage sites of Kathmandu Valley, listed on the UNESCO’s world heritage site in 1979. The history of this site dates back to 3rd century AD. This is the oldest Hindu temple still in use in Nepal. 

This is our beautiful temple before the earthquake. The main temple you see here stayed with only minor damage, but many of the smaller temples and idols fell. It's too sad to take a picture of. So, this is our lovely temple grounds as it was and as it will be again. 






LOCATION
We are located right outside the West Gate of the ancient Hindu temple.

HOW TO GET

From Katmandu: Catch the bus at Bagbazaar so you can come direct.
