Why we stay here

While not luxurious by city standards, Yet Mountain Homes raise the bar on accommodation that typically operates in the remote Everest foothills. They provide a stylish alternative to the very basic amenities of standard teahouse B&Bs. Their carefully considered aesthetic and conveniences such as en-suites, hot water and bars are considered game-changing and otherwise don’t exist in the area
