We visited Shivapuri to escape the hustle and bustle of Kathmandu with some family members from the UK. Our kids loved the beautiful gardens (with huge spiders) and the friendly dogs. At dusk we sat on the veranda, enjoyed a drink and as darkness came a fire was lit. Only a short drive from our house in Lalitpur but Shivapuri...

It is beautiful and cosy with stunning views over The Kathmandu Valley. The food was delicious, we had a wonderful head massage, there are some very pretty walks locally, the air...

After a week of sightseeing the famous destinations in and around Kathmandu by navigating a maze of streets and mind boggling traffic, I decided to pay my third visit to Shivapuri Heights Cottage. Instead of taking the 4-wheel drive up to the cottage, I walked up the trail used by locals on a steep wooded trail into the fresh air...
