The Festival of Lights is one of the most dazzling of all Hindu festivals in Nepal.
The Laxmi Puja is a very special, auspicious part of this festival and widely celebrated throughout the Kathmandu Valley in particular.
One of the best places to witness this spectacular celebration that takes place on the in October is from the Shivapuri Heights Cottages
During the festival all the houses in Kathmandu and the surrounding villages in the valley villages are decorated with oil lamps.
It’s a wonderful sight to witness the whole valley looking like a sparkling diamond…..a pretty big diamond!
Nestled in the serene Shivapuri Hills in the Kathmandu Valley, there are great panoramic views across Kathmandu and the entire valley, making this the perfect location to witness the festival and the Laxmi Puja lights.
Why not spend the night here?
