A top a 1600m hill on the northern side of Kathmandu Valley, the site of the lodge itself is a delight. While the valley remains shrouded in a winter fog, the sun shines happily at the lodge, conveniently perched above the enveloping clouds. In the summer, the towering hill behind it as well as the overwhelming greenery here, takes the mercury down a notch. Spring at the retreat is a treat. The hillside comes alive with wild flowers and the green soothes the eyes. After a raining afternoon, the smog above the valley clears to offer breathtaking views of the city lights. The monsoon ravishes the hillside, allowing you to see shades of green you will not see elsewhere in the city.

    Chhahari's rooms are housed in quaint bungalows with a traditional brick façade. The red clay of the roof tiles goes with the aesthetic mood of the design. The houses are modeled after the typical Nepali village homes that can be seen all over the hillside, with a two-story design and use of wood that is so common in most Nepali villages. Walk up the stairs to discover a balcony with clay tile detail, perfect to gaze out from at the lawns below, the green forests on the sides or the city in the background. Inside, the rooms are both spacious and tall. The clay floors go with the distinct Newar home theme, as do the charming wooden rafters on the ceiling.
