The lakeside Glacier hotel suits its name: cool, crisp and laid-back with a quiet ambiance and contemporary character. Just a short drive from Pokhara airport, it makes a convenient first stop to regroup before exploring the wider region.
The uncluttered rooms have bright, open-plan interiors that make the most of the clear lakeside light. Enjoy stunning views over the water and towards the Annapurna and Dhaulagiri Himalayan mountains from the private balconies.
Leisure: spa, terrace, cafe lounge
Rooms: 45 rooms & suites
Taking an alternative approach to a classic Nepal combination, this journey contrasts the heady and hectic streets of Kathmandu with the open savannah of Chitwan National Park. Slow down to search for tigers and rhinos amid the wilderness, before strapping up your boots for a light trek between two atmospheric lodges in the Himalayan foothills around Pokhara.
