Three Mountain Lodge
Bandipur | Superior
High on a ridge above Bandipur village, with panoramic views over the valley towards the snowy Himalayan peaks, Three Mountain Lodge feels about as far from fast-paced city life as you can get. Reaching the lodge requires a fair degree of fitness and determination, as it’s a good three-hour trek from Bandipur village, the last 40 minutes of which necessitates some serious climbing, but the view when you get to the ridge makes it all worthwhile.
The single-storey apartments feel welcoming, fulfilling their niche as somewhere warm and comfortable to rest your head after a full day’s trekking. Uncluttered white walls and simple honey-coloured woods evoke an almost Scandinavian decor, matching the clarity of the mountain air outside, while traditional Nepali textiles and brightly painted exterior woodwork brings in a sense of local culture. With only 12 rooms, the lodge has a boutique, intimate feel which promotes tranquillity and focus. The showers are heated with help from roof mounted solar panels, showcasing an ecological, and practical, solution to an issue raised by the remote location. The crowning glory of each room is the small veranda which provides a private outdoor space where guests can sit and soak up the stunning views.
Hill trekking is what a stay at this resort is all about, and it’s ideally positioned for getting out into the mountainous landscape around Bandipur – if you can tear yourself away from the mountain views from your balcony that is! The food is hearty fuel designed to set you up for a day’s hiking in the hills, or exploring the village, and guides are on hand to help you find the best paths. When you return, curl up around the roaring outdoor fire with a mug of something hot, or a warming sundowner cocktail, and contemplate your next trek.
Easily combinable with sister property Seti River Camp, which is a three-hour, steep downhill trek away.
