World’s most remote Irish bar will weather Covid storm

It’s two days’ hike from the nearest airport. There’s no parking, even if you could reach it by car.

The Irish Pub in Namche Bazaar, Nepal warrants a place in the Guinness Book of Records – if not for being the ‘most remote’ than the ‘highest’ Irish bar in the world. At 3500 above sea level, the bar serves the route for mountaineers on the way to – and from – Everest.

This provides another challenge for the hardy bar. The mountain region has been closed to tourists since April 10, as part of Nepal’s government measures to combat Covid 19.

Talking to the BBC, Dawa explained it is all a matter of weathering the storm. Good times lie ahead.
