The only reason I ended up in 1905 was for the yoga classes. I was tired and completely unimpressed by the mess called Kathmandu. I needed a way to relax and found an add for yoga classes. That morning, walking through the streets of Thamel, I was honestly expecting the worst.
So walking past the old bowling alley and through the trees that open to a little bridge that connects to this beautiful colonial house was such a pleasant surprise! It was as if I stepped out of Kathmandu chaos and into Kathmandu calm.
The yoga class was exactly what the doctor ordered. After that I had a lovely breakfast. I met amazing people who are still friends til today. And then I appeared at the Saturday's farmers' market which was a real treat! The month that I was in Nepal, I visited 1905 about 4 separate times... all times were amazing :)
1905 is a breather away from the overly touristy Thamel. Take the yoga classes, sit and enjoy the shoppers in the farmers' market, or simply sit, have tea and take in this beautiful restored house.
