On any given day, General Manager Monika Scheiblauer can be seen making her way over the polished wood floors of the Yak & Yeti Hotel, her smile gracious and the lilt of her speech easily recognised as German.
Scheiblauer is the first woman general manager of the hotel located off Darbar Marg and the only woman general manager of a five-star hotel in Kathmandu Valley at the moment. Before she came to Nepal in 2017, she managed hotels in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, France, Thailand, Malaysia, and Bahrain.
“It has been more than two years that I have worked in this organisation and I feel at home, with an overall sense of warmth and belonging,” says Scheiblauer, who says she had always dreamt of visiting Nepal. “I have made wonderful memories here that will stay with me forever.”
