I have stayed in Shambaling a couple of times over the years. Each time I felt I’m staying in a home, rather than a hotel. Jigme and her team are wonderful! The staff are all courteous and attentive. The owners are always helpful and offer valuable advice, not commercialised advice as some other hotels would do. They pay attention to details.
The rooms are warm and cosy. The beds are firm enough. The warm shower, with constant running warm water, is a great welcome during winter.
There is a garden in the courtyard. The flowers are pretty. Perfect place for al-fresco dining.
Food is also good. They serve Tibetan Thukpa and momo. Even simple dish such as clear vegetable soup is tasty and warming for the stomach. No MSG.
Best of all, it’s only less than 10 minutes’ walk to the great Boudhanath Stupa, walking along the inner lane to the Stupa.
The road leading to Shambaling is now perfect, construction works for that road is now completed.
