Geocache Description:

A secure TB Hotel in the heart of Thamel, Kathmandu

The cache is located in the offices of 'Ecological Treks and Tours' in Thamel, Kathmandu. This company is run by friends of mine, and I have trekked with them twice in Nepal. They have agreed to keep the container in their office and to give it to anyone who shows up and asks for "geocache". This gives any visiting geocacher the opportunity to log a Nepal cache, and to leave or take TBs.

It is often difficult to obtain an accurate GPS reading in the narrow streets of Thamel. However, I took the reading at a relatively open intersection and received 10m accuracy.

Thamel locations do not have street addresses, but if you are able to navigate near to the posted location, you will be able to find the office. Look for the ETT signpost, or for that of the Tashi Delek restaurant, which is on the ground floor. Go in the door and then up the stairs, then turn right. Office hours are approximately 09:00 to 18:00. English is spoken by almost everyone, and one of the owners speaks both German and Korean.

Across the street is a Kodak Express, Map Center, and Four Seasons Restaurant, if you are still disoriented.

*** Note ***

TB inventory will almost never be current. Many cachers do not log picking up TBs, so that they disappear until placed in a new cache.
