Perhaps the best activity is getting here! Take a short ride across the calm waters of Fewa Lake and trek slowly up the dense Raniban, the Queen's Jungle. Watch out for Barking Deer, Langur and Jungle Chickens as you ascend to the Vishwa Shanti, The World Peace Stupa.

A final short climb up our 500 stone steps will reward you with awesome views of the Himalayan Peaks from Dhaulagiri to Ganesh Himal and that's the Raniban Retreat: Your luxury mountain hotel.
