Perfect start to my Nepal trekking trip by stopping here for a 3-day yoga, meditation and spa treatment package. Situated in the hills overlooking Kathmandu (though you wouldn't know it from the smog covering the city in the mornings), the place consists of safari tents and gorgeous gardens (from where the fresh leaves for morning tea are plucked), plus the yoga and spa areas. The welcome was incredible, a sea of calm; the yoga was thoroughly uplifting, the meditation in the evening quite intense. Breakfast is served after the yoga in the morning, and in the evening a choice of dinner is available, me mainly sticking to the wonderful dhal bat, the national dish. The steam bath and massage treatments were also expertly done, and all in all, together with the yoga practices, I was almost permanently buzzing, senses raw and alive surrounded by a dramatic landscape. Not only that, but they even offer walking tours to local monasteries, places you would never otherwise find. And the people, man, they were so friendly and welcoming, nothing was too much. This was a real find, absolutely incredible, I couldn't recommend it highly enough. Loved it!
