Banthanti Kaski (2200m) means jungle resting stop. It is commonly refered to just as Banthanti but should not be confused with the same near Deurali Pass. This small village consists of a number of tea shops and restaurants spread out over some distance on the south side of the Bhurungdi Khola. The town is even host to a small church. Lodging options include - Fish Tail Peak Guest House, Green Hill View Guest House, Heaven View Guest House, Hotel Fish Tail View, Himalayan Guest House, Machha-Puchhre Guest House, the trekkers Guest House, Sunlife View Restuarnt and Moonlight Restaurant. It is a nice place to stay well above the canyon floor if one can make it here on the firsts days trek from Nayapul.
