The Vegetarian Resource Group Blog

I am an American vegan who is writing to you concerning my friend and fellow vegan who is a travel guide in Nepal. We met him upon recommendation of a vegan travel group on Facebook. He led us through the beautiful country of Nepal for 2.5 weeks in October 2015. He is knowledgeable about the culture, and owns the only vegan restaurant in Kathmandu. He was able to help us navigate all of our food needs while in Nepal, where vegetarianism is common but they usually don’t understand what a vegan is. We remain in contact with him, and consider him our “little brother.” If you do not have a vegan guide that you are working with in Nepal,you should contact Shatki. The website for the travel company that employs him is: Vegan guests should ask for Shakti Yonzon by name. -Beth

Here is Shatki’s restaurant.
