Basecamp has been a soulful place for about two years now. It turned into a major relief center after the April 25 earthquake while also providing relief to the relief workers.

Friendly and unassuming, and frequented by both good looking and intelligent people, there is never a dull moment at Basecamp. Well complimented by a cosy coffee shop downstairs; order-in pizza, and frankey rolls; and increasingly regular, good live music.

Warning: Can get addicting!

Dear Nayan,

You're definitely one of the goodlooking and intelligent people :), thanks for the great review!

The earthquake brought out the best in some and the worst in others, it was definitely the former for the BaseCamp family that includes you!

See you soon!

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 :)

Amazing hidden place off the tourist track. Great ambiance and even better people. Properly priced drinks and a surprising amount of live music.

Base Camp, in the quieter corner of Jhamsikhel, is by far the friendliest bar in Kathmandu to visit. On any given day you'll find some of the best musical performers drop in for a casual performance. With art works on its canvas walls, and a community of artists in the premises, don't be surprised if there are spontaneous works of art or musical performances being created.

Although Base Camp doesn't have a kitchen yet, pizza and other comestibles from restaurants nearby can be ordered. More than anything else, I have found new friends from all around the world and the neighborhood. Over just a few days you end up being part of a community of regulars - outdoor enthusiasts, artists and musicians, passionate and friendly locals. I went for a drink. I still go there every few days - to meet and make friends, listen to poetry and music. Drink beer and laugh.

Dear Prawin,

Thank you for being our first reviewer! And such an amazing one at that! Free drink next time you come by (just adding to our friendliness :))

And to add to the artwork - there's an ArtLab store opening from today, come check it out!
