These are companies and places that we frequent when we are in Nepal, or that help us ‘get there’.  Tell them we sent you!

Accounting/Financial

Courtney Kopec, CPA, is based in New York City. He has helped us with a number of financial questions and serves as a volunteer on the board of Wide Open Vistas which is a charity that we are closely aligned with.  We have know Courtney for over 20 years and can’t recommend him enough. His accounting company is  Kali River LLC  (www.kaliriver.com) and it offers tax and accounting services for small businesses and individuals.

The goal at Boldly Went is to create an international network of outdoor enthusiasts through storytelling and personal connections, in order to help you adventure like a local.  We love this company and are proud to partner with them. They have great story-telling events in various cities, great podcasts, and much more. Check them out! www.boldlywent.weebly.com

Lodging in Kathmandu

If you don’t mind staying north of the ring road, we like the Royal Astoria Hotel, they have very nice rooms for $20-25 USD and the location is quiet. You can go running out the front door without worrying about traffic and be into rice paddies within 15 minutes. Thamel is about 300 rupees by taxi in the daytime and takes about 20 minutes.

If you want to stay in Thamel and are on a budget, check out the ‘Yellow House’. Note that there are three ‘Yellow Houses’ in Kathmandu, this is the google map link to the one we recommend. They also have good Thai food. Rooms are maybe $15 a night.

Medical Assistance

On all of our trips we contract with Dr. Pranav Koirala – communicating with him when needed by satellite phone.  Pranav is a licensed Nepali physician now training in the US for Emergency medicine. He has a love for the mountains and rural health. Passions include the outdoors, emergency medicine, healthcare in Nepal. Some of his experiences include work with Everest ER, High altitude expeditions, Ultraraces and filming projects among others as an expedition doctor. If you would like to get in touch with Pranav for remote, or on-site, expedition work – drop us a line and we will pass on your message. We can’t recommend him enough!
