The Steps !

The Cottages are perched on a hillside looking down into the Kathmandu Valley and provide stunning views of the valley below and surrounding countryside.

Situated at an altitude of around 6,000 feet and located on the edge of the protected Shivapuri National Park it provides clean air and an ideal escape from the hustle and bustle of Kathmandu without having to travel too far.

Taxis can reach the general area where we are located and then the final approach to the Cottage is up a steep off-road track where a 4WD is normally required to the foot of the hill. From there it is a short 2-3 minute uphill walk and our staff will assist with your luggage.

With prior notice we can arrange reasonably priced transport from the airport or another hotel. Our 4WD drive vehicle will bring you directly to the foot of the hill where the Cottage is located.  See more details.

If coming by taxi please ask for the Hari Krishna Centre (also known as ISKON) located near to Budhanilkantha (also known as Narayanthan). A taxi will not be able to come up the hill and from the Hari Krishna Temple it is a 10-15 minute uphill walk. Follow the signs or call us for directions. It is also helpful if you call in advance to let us know an approximate arrival time and if you require lunch to be prepared.

Important arrival information update (Sept 2018) : Due to an issue with our access road it is no longer possible to drive all the way to our property and you now have to walk for about 5-10 minutes on an uphill path.  We have created a walking trail that is sign-posted and please do call Ramita at the Cottage if you need help with your luggage etc.  For people with their own vehicles it is best to park at the Hare Krishna Temple and then walk up from there (10-15 mins).
