R&R at Shivapuri Heights

We decided to treat ourselves after the trek and booked four nights at the Shivapuri Heights Cottages. We found it on tripadvisor.com a few months ago and there are good reasons that it’s getting so many fantastic reviews. Situated in the hills above Kathmandu, you feel like being in the countryside, while only being half an hour away from the city.

It’s run by Steve and his wife Neeru and we feel a bit like being house guests in their home. Truth be told, we did very little the last three days … except sleeping late, eating great food, doing quite a bit of reading and enjoying the evenings with the other guests. The kids even have two dogs and a trampoline to play with … and if that get’s boring, there is a stream nearby to catch tadpoles in.

It’s (quite) a bit over our budget, but was well worth the extra money spent!

Today it’s back to the hustle of Kathmandu for a night before we’ll be flying out to Singapore tomorrow afternoon.

    Wie schön, dass Ihr ein paar Tage “Ruhe” hattet! Nochmals Dank für Eure Geburtstagsgrüße. Die Technik bringt Euch so nahe, als wärt Ihr im Nachbarhaus.
    Wir wünschen einen guten Flug und schöne Zeit in Singapur. Hier ist es seit 2 Tagen mal wieder lausigkalt. Gruß, Mama
