Rum Doodle Restaurant & Bar information
Named after the world’s highest mountain, the 40,000½ft Mt Rum Doodle (according to WE Bowman, author of The Ascent of Rum Doodle, a spoof of serious mountaineering books), the original Rum Doodle was a favourite meeting place for mountaineering expeditions – Edmund Hillary, Reinhold Messner, Ang Rita Sherpa and Rob Hall left their mark on the walls. The new location doesn’t have the history but it’s a pleasant place with a fine terrace and sunny rooftop, and trekking groups can add their own yeti footprint trek report to the dozens plastered on the walls. The restaurant (mains Rs 440 to Rs 530) serves up decent steaks, pasta and pizza.
