The people at Shivapuri Heights could not have been nicer or more accommodating. The view over and across the Kathmandu Valley at dawn was gorgeous, and the food was delicious, especially the classic chicken lasagna we had for dinner. That said, we did face a couple of unfortunate difficulties. The steep walk to the entrance in the rain was quite... More

The cottage gives the feel of peace and beauty that you can only experience while you are in the property. Twinkling lights of the valley at night and the stars in the sky, it's heavenly!! morning tea with a magnificent view of the greenery and the valley is again breath taking. Relaxing at Neeru's spa is adding value to your... More

I could not stop oohing and ahhing over Shivapuri Heights Cottage. It's a small hike up the hills and steps, but once you reach the top, the homey and well-thought out ambiance of the cottage welcomes you with non-stop delights. The grounds are well-kept and host an abundance of flowers and plants creating gorgeous garden and outdoor spaces everywhere you... More

We took our 4-month old on her first hike to Shivapuri and Shivapuri Heights Cottages offered us a day trip that was perfect for our family. With a visit to a Buddhist monastery, a short 30 minute hike through villages on the hill, delicious lunch, great company, and beautiful views of the valley. It was the perfect quick "escape" from...

Ideal escape from the noise & haste of Thamel, Shivapuri provides the perfect fusion of hotel and homeliness. We loved it! Good food, friendly hosts and impeccable attention from the staff make this a special place to relax, but there's heaps of good walking too. From the hotel you can visit a local monastery and continue up into the national... More

And again, Steve and Niru are the best hosts, the place is just perfectly situated and done up, and the food to die for. This time around, also managed a perfect morning hike to a monastery before a sumptuous lunch. Thanks again. We loved it so much. The perfect weekend getaway.

An impromptu get away with friends. Small, cozy tastefully done resort a half an hour ride out of Kathmandu. From the time you get there, it is about sharing, being with fellow adventurers, community, hearty laughs, and many stories told. We went for a walk to the Monastery, can do longer walks - just stunning, and place that makes your... More

Absolutely fantastic! Shivapuri Heights exceeded my expectations greatly, the pictures simply don't do it justice. After a month of travelling in Nepal, spending 2 nights here was the perfect relaxing end to the trip. We stayed in the main house and thoroughly enjoyed mixing with the owners and other guests. Food was sublime, and the views/setting just beautiful and peaceful.... More

Wonderful to return and find everything as I remember and more. The perfect way to wind down from a trek in the peaceful surroundings that feel like a home. The massage is one of the best I have ever had and I look forward to being part of the Shivapuri crowd again soon.

My family was in Kathmandu visiting and wanted to get out of the city. I decided to contact Shivapuri Heights Cottages, where I had visited during Tijar. I explained to Steve what my parents daughter and I were looking for and he described what he could arrange for us: a hike to a newly-built monastery then another small hike to... More
