Namche Bazaar Irish Pub

Namche Bazaar, Nepal

Namche Bazaar, Nepal might seem like an unlikely place for an Irish Pub, but this mountain town itself shares a subtle similarity to a traditional pub – this is a community where people of all backgrounds gather for camaraderie and merriment. In Namche, alpine travelers converge here to celebrate life and get acclimated to the high altitude, usually as a prelude to a trek into the Himalayas.

The Irish Pub – Namche is within walking distance of town center and is strategically located to attract visitors as well as locals. It’s a cozy place with a fireplace and just enough room for table soccer and billiards. Free wifi and a big screen TV with international channels makes it a good place to keep in touch with the outside world…if you must.

It is one of the most remote and possibly the highest Irish pubs in the world, but as you walk through the doors you’ll feel instantly at home. So before you set out to conquer Mt. Everest, stop by the Irish Pub – Namche to enjoy a Guinness or local favorite like Tongba, as you warm your bones, and spirits, here in the “Gateway to the Himalayas.”
