Nepal’s tourism sector has seen many changes in the last four decades with new hotels and new infrastructure. Established forty years ago in an old Rana Palace, Hotel Yak & Yeti has established itself in the international tourism market as a five star quality hotel at the heart of the city
In the last forty years, many star hotels have come to Kathmandu. However, Hotel Yak & Yeti has maintained its own image in the tourism sector. With its glorious history, the hotel has made immense contributions to Nepal’s tourism sector.
Hotel Yak & Yeti marked the 40th anniversary of its spirit to serve the customers. The hotel completed 40 years of its operation as a leading luxury hotel on 27th September 2017.
Radhe Shyam Saraf, chairman of the hotel, started Hotel Yak & Yeti the World Tourism Day back in 1977. With a history and mystery of Ranas in it, the hotel has an exquisite charm and maintains sophistication in the ample grounds of the over 100 years- old palace.
The hotel management brought together the celebration of the 40th anniversary in full swing. The event was held in the tranquil Madhuban garden decked up with Nepali decor. The hospitality, as always, was unbeatable with Nepali touch and authentic Nepali food. The food was segregated into regions of Nepal; Himal, Pahad and Terai.
The beautiful hostesses with different ethnic dresses were standing in every corner to demonstrate the Nepalese vibes to expats, delegates and local corporate members present in the event.
The show also had cultural performances demonstrating Arati (Hindu), Newari, Bhojpuri and Sherpa cultures. Ms. Monika Petra Scheiblauer shared that she is very glad to be a part of the hotel, which is a living cultural heritage in the heart of Kathmandu.
She thanked all the companies and guests who have supported the property and added the management will always strive to exceed the customer's expectations. Golden, against the setting sun, was the reminiscence of the menu of the year 1977, which was held at Sunrise Restaurant.
