The world UNESCO Heritage site temples and palaces of thrumming Durbar Square are the foundations of Kathmandu's identity. Perch on a temple's steps as the city flows by or seek out the Kasthamandap. This pagoda, said to be carved from a single tree, gave Kathmandu its name.
Your Concierge can arrange 1-day hikes to immerse you in the landscape of the Kathmandu Valley. The road to the Nepali homes of Dhulikhel threads through fertile rice fields while The Last Resort offers Himalayan paragliding, rafting and bungee jumping.
Chandragiri Hills tour is a perfect day escape to get rid of bustling city life, located 13km from the Hotel. Situated at an altitude of 2551 meters from the sea level, a cable card ride will take you to the hill top. Experience the breathtaking view of towering Himalayan peaks, ranging from Annapurna to Everest with panoramic view of the entire Kathmandu Valley.
Buying a pashmina. The pashmina goat is indigenous to the Himalayas. Its improbably soft wool keeps it warm on the mountain tops and works just as well on humans. Your Concierge at Soaltee Crowne Plaza Kathmandu knows where to buy the genuine article.
If you're short of time, there are swifter ways to gain altitude and see the Himalayas. Take to the sky on an Everest flight to see the summit of the world's tallest mountain at sunrise, and then make your way back to the hotel in time for lunch.
