In the late 1980s, Nepal’s leading tourism pioneer Ang Tshering Sherpa arrived at Lakhuri. He was struck by how majestic it was to stare squarely at the great Himalayas from a spot so close to Nepal’s capital, Kathmandu. Standing atop this hill, above gracefully descending rice terraces, he discovered an incomparable view of both the Himalayas and Kathmandu.
Today, The Terraces invites guests to share the awe of this Himalayan story. As if a continuation of the rice terraces below, the hotel rises up from the slopes in the manner of a Himalayan monastery, or Dzong, its construction guided by divine inspiration.
The Terraces Resort and Spa is located 16km from Kathmandu’s Tribhuvan International Airport. This means that guests are less than an hour’s drive from the busy capital and a short direct flight away from most major cities in India, China, the rest of South Asia and South East Asia.
There is also a private helipad on site for those who want to skip the city traffic.
