    When it comes to Nepalese hospitality, Mina Tamang (Tika’s wife) has no equal. Whenever we stay at Chateau Tamang – Tika and Mina’s home on the outskirts of Kathmandu – it’s Mina that warmly greets us and gets us settled. The traditional Nepalese food soon follows and you’re never allowed to stop after just one serve. All our guests have the option to stay with Mina and Tika at their home at the start or conclusion of their trip with us. Mina’s hospitality is one of the most authentic and cultural experiences you’ll encounter anywhere in Nepal.
