Our Story

Established 1968, KGH Group of Hotels and Resorts is Nepal’s leading hotel chain with 7 eco-friendly hotels under its flagship. Karna Sakya, founder of KGH Group, is hailed as the father of tourism in Nepal. He has been given credit for putting Nepal on the tourist map. He is renowned for opening the Kathmandu Guest House in 1968, the company’s first hotel which was instrumental in starting adventure tourism in the country and creating the famous tourism hub of Kathmandu - Thamel.
