Welcome to a heavenly property that will make you feel instantly at home. Run by the delightful Sherpa family who built it, expect endless smiles and endearing conversations throughout your experience. The Happy House features Thangka paintings curated by Khapa Rinzi, a Sherpa master, as well as frescoes depicting devils, birds, flowers, and gods. Brimming with Nepalese history, the property is truly characterful. A comfortable bed awaits, adorned with wonderful cashmere blankets and hot water bottles to guarantee a deep and enjoyable rest.

Cuisine & Activities

Savour mouth-watering feasts served on copper plates using the finest produce such as homegrown vegetables and local yak meat. You’ll be kept happy and full throughout your stay as the private Sherpa cook attends all excursions to ensure you are fed well. With a yoga master on hand, reconnect with nature and unwind after days exploring

Why we love it

The Happy House has been stayed in repeatedly by the famed Sir Edmund Hillary on his Himalayan visits for Mount Everest expeditions. He discovered the house after founding a hospital in 1975 to serve the surrounding remote valleys. He even proclaimed the mountain views to be the best he’s ever seen!
