Vishuddhi Alaya

Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in, where Nature may heal and cheer and give strength to body and soul alike.

Experience Peacefulness

Vishuddhi Alaya Resort is a place where we experience the silence of nature and, along with that, peacefulness and spaciousness within ourselves. The resort is located in a serene, natural environment that promotes tranquility and relaxation of our entire being. With its paradise-like seclusion and facilities, the retreat is an ideal location to withdraw from our stressful daily lives and reconnect to nature and ourselves. Being located in the neighboring area of the sacred pilgrimage site of Namo Buddha, the place is steeped in spiritual energy, which enhances the feeling of peacefulness and oneness.

  • Following activities are offered at the resort:
  • Guided hikes and walks through the surrounding villages and forests
  • Ayurvedic massage packages
  • Craniosacral Therapy sessions
  • Organic gardening actvities
  • Nepali cooking classes
  • Morning yoga classes (private or group classes)

Your Retreat and Seminarplace

Seminars and workshops are offered at Vishuddhi Alaya on various subjects such as organic farming, Ayurveda and other sustainable living and health related subjects. Further on, the place is open to all kinds of organizations to hold group retreats or seminars. Nestled in the stillness and purity of nature we can leave behind our everyday routine and access a fresh kind of intelligence and inspiration.

Finally, the space is open to everybody who simply wants to enjoy the healing energy of nature. Vishuddhi Alaya’s philosophy of combining a natural, holistic lifestyle with personalized yoga sessions (BKS Iyengar system of Yoga) and Ayurvedic Massage treatments allows us to gain new perspectives on ourselves and to cultivate a more connected sense of being.

Truly beautiful resort in unspoiled nature of Namobuddha, excellent organic food and the best yoga classes I ever had. The hall is also incredible and fully equipped with anything you may need! Will definitely return.
Natalija W.

We finally went to Namobuddha, and I want to share with you what a beautiful experience we had in Vishuddhi Alaya. Every detail from the delicious food (all of which comes from the beautiful organic garden), to the rooms, the simple and efficient design of the building and the spaces... the huge yoga hall... everything is delicately taken care of with love and concern for the guests.
