The Chimney is lit


Keeping up the yearly tradition that is exclusive to Hotel Yak & Yeti, the Chimney Lighting Ceremony was held on November 16. To mark this special occasion, Andrey L Trofimov, Ambassador of Russia, lit the Chimney at the hotel’s Chimney restaurant.

Ambassador of Japan Tatsuo Mizuno also graced the lighting ceremony.

Famous as the father of tourism in Nepal, Boris Lissanevitch had established The Chimney in Kathmandu Valley, where it stood out as a distinctive quality restaurant. Even today this handcrafted chimney fascinates people with its massive structure and uniqueness. You can enjoy the warmth seated beside it in the cold winter evenings and enjoy the beautiful spectacle it provides as it illuminates the ceilings of The Chimney.

In this pleasant environment you can savour Boris’ original Chimney dishes as well. Be it the Smoked Bekti or Chicken a la Kiev prepared with finesse or the flaming baked Alaska Sagarmatha, the authentic taste is still there.

But if you crave to have some traditional dishes, you could select Rack of Lamb with an Eggplant and Seasame Ragout. Or if you desire to have something more spicy, Tartare of Smoked Bacon with Wasabi is a must have. And this is not all, innovative dishes that will satiate your appetites are on the menu too.

The Chimney will be lit every evening till February 15. The restaurant is open from 6.30-9.30 pm.
