"I know Shrestha’s family when I stayed at their establishment, Pension Tushita at lakeside. Unfortunately, they were in trouble with the house-owner for contract. Since then, we had no connection. But luckily again, I met them at their lovely new retreat center. Being a nature therapist, I can feel the spiritual vibration. The surrounding of Tushita-Nepal is full of positive vibration. I found it as one of the best places for any person to find inner peace. The beautiful Annapurna Himalaya with the Virgin Mt. Fishtail is magical. The agricultural terraces of mustard field, herb garden, and the view of World Peace Stupa seen just in front was something like poetic expressions. As in the website written, the place is far from the madding crowd and meant for those who are in pursuit of peace and happiness. I am planning to bring yoga lovers small groups from Germany and Netherlands every year."

"While surfing in the Indonesian island, one of my friends told me about awesome views of Annapurna Himalaya seen from Tushita Nepal. Then, I could not wait for that moment, so I flew to for Pokhara, Nepal. Once I arrived here, I was bewildered with the utmost tranquility, spiritual vibration, and the magnificent mountain views seen just in front. The whole Pokhara city was under the cloud for four days, but I could enjoy dramatic mountain views and sunrise above the clouds. I practiced yoga and meditation and learned the principle and truths of yoga. Moreover, a naked sky full of stars and the milky way was so stunning. I captured such rare glimpses of nature. Definitely, I had an experience of a lifetime. The utmost cordiality and homely atmosphere of Shrestha’s family made me think and write few words of humanity and brotherhood that the modern world has forgotten."

"I was searching for some destination to release and refresh from busy life. Somehow, I found Tushita-Nepal along with an organic farming concept that lured me to go there. I immediately wrote an email to the concern person and received answer with so much warmth and closeness. I decided to go and stay at Tushita for a week. In fact, as seen in the picture, the location was superb - difficult to express in words. It is my pleasure to be amidst the mother nature with 360 degree views. I am totally refreshed after staying at Tushita. Moreover, Shrestha recommended me to see one of the astrologers (Sundar Paju) and found the lost way. I really appreciate for his great help. I really recommend for people to visit Tushita who are tired from their life and lost the way further to go."

"Namaste! Staying in Tushita Nepal was indeed unique experience. Sitting in peace on top of the hill, guided preparation and meditation were my aim so I am quite happy, as beginner, to get it from my host, Yogi Panchavedi. Every day was filled new learning, sanskrit, and history of Nepal. Fine family atmosphere and lovely neighbourhood is what to expect there. Available tracking, walking around the hills, swimming in the lake, and Ayurvedic meals. All fruits and vegetables are home grown and organic. My brain and body were refreshed after only eight days spent in Tushita."
