Boris Lissanevitch was regarded as one of the more colorful characters of Kathmandu. He was a Russian emigrant, ballet dancer, big game hunter, distiller, and hotelier. As owner of the Royal Hotel, and thus the Yak and Yeti Bar, many an expedition came to know him. Sir Edmund Hillary regarded him as “a great friend” who was “always full of ideas, exciting life and never dull.”
