Basanta Lodge

Dhampus |

Perched high on a forested hillside, with the snow-covered Annapurna peaks in the background, Basanta Lodge offers unbeatable views over the Phedi and Mardi Valleys.

Bright, simply decorated rooms open out onto shared verandahs facing a sheltered lawn with a stunning outlook over the mountains. Waking each morning as the crisp light floods into your room, and sipping the first cuppa of the day gazing towards the majestic landscape beyond, is a truly memorable way to begin.

There’s a real retreat ambiance here, where simple pleasures, such as enjoying the natural surroundings in welcoming company, take centre stage. Individual touches, like giving guests cosy slippers and jackets to snuggle up in during the cooler hours, make it stand out.

Spend a few days around the lively village of Dhampus (famous as a stopover for hikers en-route to serious climbs), trying out the tea houses, enjoying gentle nature walks, and soaking up the scenery. End each evening with a home-cooked dinner of Nepalese and international dishes, and a happy hour drink around the fire as the sun’s last rays disappear behind those stunning peaks.

We Say

A simple, serene retreat where you can take time out to enjoy the pure mountain air.
