The Dwarika's hotel is about a ten-minute taxi ride from Tribhuvan Airport in Kathmandu.
Best time to go
The peak season to visit Nepal is between late September and early December because of the clear skies and fresh air which gives clear views of the mountains. For wildlife seekers, the best season is from late February to mid-April when the climate is warm and dry and the Terai's long grass has been cut improving wildlife sightings in Chitwan and Bardia national parks.
This hotel is a short distance from the airport but also is a short distance from the famous Pashupatinath Temple and the Buddhist stupa at Boudhanath. The hotel is an ideal base to explore Nepal while accommodating guests in an elegant luxurious setting.
