I shall return to this place! Shivapuri Heights is blissfully located on a hill out of the hustle and bustle of Kathmandu which would wear down the most seasoned of travellers, eventually. It is the perfect place to make day trips into town or to other nearby places of interest. The owners -Neeru and Steve-are extremely knowledgeable of the area and are more than helpful in assisting in your plans to travel further afield. Whilst there have been comments relating to the location being up on the hill as something of an inconvenience -I would seriously reconsider if this is at all an issue. I ended up staying there twice in 7 days, and both times I was met by a man who took ALL my luggage up to the house without stopping for breath, same for the trip back down the hill where a lady half my size took all my luggage back down, putting my level of fitness to shame. It is well worth staying on the hill as on a clear day you can see virtually the whole valley and more often than not your days will end with a superb sunset. The area is full of flowers, native plants and fruit trees -a true Garden of Eden, and there were days when I felt comfortable just pottering about. Most meals are taken with other guests at a dining table, and we shared some of the best conversations ever in my travels! It's also easy to retreat into your own world and read books from their extensive library, by the fire, if it's cold enough.
