Tucked away at the southern end of Fewa Lake, the Temple Tree Resort & Spa in Pokhara offers a focus on rest, health and relaxation. A pair of spacious two-storey cottages provide accommodation with private verandas that offer views of the garden where the fragrant, branches of the eponymous, ancient frangipani tree sway gently overhead.
Take a boat on the lake or simply sit by the water taking in the spectacular sight of the Himalayan peaks that are reflected here.
Leisure: Infinity pool, pool terrace, garden, spa, Fewa Lake views, boating, fishing

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.
