I stayed in Catson Guesthouse for two weeks in May 2012 and I have to say a big thank you to Ramesh and his family for their great hospitality. The nice and small Guest house in the beautiful and quiet East part of Bhaktapur has some very comfortable rooms with everything you need on your trip. Ramesh is not only the owner of this house, which he has builded with his own hands some years ago, beside this he is a wonderful host, experienced trekking guide, reliable taxi driver and he makes the best milk tea in town ;)
If you want to get a little bit deeper into Newar culture (more than Lonely Planet level) Ramesh can show you a lot of places, restaurants and nature in and around Bhaktapur. Without meeting Ramesh my time in Nepal wouldnt have been as incredible as it was. See you soon...
