"Excellent place to stay and do yoga"
The guesthouse was beautiful, a wonderful blend of Nepalese and European cultures. I very much enjoyed the one hour yoga class in the morning on a grass platform overlooking Kathmandu valley. The yoga instructor Manoj Panday was most helpful as I had hurt my back and we did specific asanas to help. The food was delicious and plenty of it! The trek through Shivapuri national park was also most enjoyable. The owners Steve and Neeru and all the staff are delightful and I would highly recommend Shivapuri Heights Cottage.
