Our stay at Shivapuri Heights Cottage turned out to be the perfect ending to an unbelievable 17 day trek to Everest Base camp. A trip to Nepal can shock even the most seasoned traveler. The culture, traffic, sounds and pace of Kathmandu are equally exhilarating and exhausting at the same time. We arranged our trip through Steve Webster at Escape2Nepal and had the good fortune of booking a room at the cottage at the end of the trek prior to returning to the States. It proved to be an invaluable transition back into civilization and will remain indelibly engrained as one of the highlights of the trip. Dinner on the terrace was almost magic as the sun set and the lights of the city came up. The staff was very attentive, discrete and polite and the food outstanding – most of it fresh from the garden on site. In retrospect, we only wish that we had allotted an extra couple of nights.
Although not within walking distance of Thamal, it is precisely the fact that it is slightly away from town that makes it so special and unique. Do not let its location deter you from experiencing some of the finest Kathmandu has to offer. It is truly an undiscovered jewel.
