The Gokarna Forest Resort is an establishment for some peace and calm interlaced with rich history and cultural value

Gokarna Forest Resort, an oasis of serenity and quiet with deep historical and cultural significance, was inspired by a fusion of the architectural styles of the Malla and Rana royal palaces. Since it has been preserved for more than 500 years, the temperate forest of the historic Kathmandu Valley has supported and safeguarded a large range of birds and animals, including spotted deer and monkeys, all of which can be easily seen throughout the resort ground. Gokarna Forest Resort is located amid the enormous 470-acre Gokarna Forest with the majestic mountains as the backdrop.
