The Dwarika's Hotel is a fine example of Nepali architecture. The hotel has the most intricate wood and terracotta work which took at least 10 million hours of work of the best craftsmen of Nepal. Appreciation of each handmade brick, and every piece of original wood is what makes this hotel so special and unique.
If you are an avid foodie the restaurants here will not disappoint, most of the ingredients are produced in the hotel's organic farm. Dine in style and enjoy meals reminiscent of ritual feasts up to 22 courses. We recommend a visit to the library at the hotel, full of interesting books on the history of Nepal aswell as being the most splendid place to sit back and relax after an exhilarating day taking in vibrant Kathmandu.

The climate varies in Nepal from cool summers and severe winters in the north to subtropical summers and mild winters in the south. October and November are the best time to visit. The monsoon occurs between June and September.
