Overview

Base Camp is currently a bar, a coffee-shop, a mountain bike servicing center and an ArtLab store. We are the only space that offers these many diverse services, while offering some of the best live music in Nepal (mostly jazz). We are different to anything else in Kathmandu - come check us out!

Dear Happy460, I think your review was for the actual Everest Base Camp and not our bar/business of the same name :), although our name is based on the one your reviewed! 5-6 days to EBC is indeed a feat! Best, Amanda

Base camp is great for its relaxed outdoorsy atmosphere and impromptu concerts and jam sessions. There's always something happening there. Patrons include local artists, musicians and expats.

Everest Base Camp takes days of trekking to get to, and you have to carry your own supplies whilst risking frost bite and yeti attacks. This Base Camp has beer and pizza.

Dear James, Best review ever! Shame we dont have Belgian clowns dropping by often, maybe they'll reconsider and come back next year! Totally true about the yetis - the only yeti in our neighborhood, is the yummiest passionfruit-vodka cocktail :)
