We are all guardians of the Himalayas.
At Mountain Lodges of Nepal,
we take that role seriously.

Our eco-friendly lodges and resorts work to mitigate adverse impacts and protect these sacred hills, via increased energy efficiency, solar power, on property gardens, and waste reduction.

We supports our community through actions both at individual lodge level and with the Pasang Lhamu Foundation, which has provided health, legal, and educational support to women and under-served groups since 1993.

Recently, Mountain Lodges of Nepal participated in the Pasang Lhamu Foundation’s “Learn to Earn” Barista and Service Training program in Lukla, giving free vocational training to local mountaineers and their families, impacted by the COVID pandemic.

We also support direct development. We build from local materials, using local craftsmen, indigenous motifs and products. Staff are hired locally, and trained into managerial positions. By making local farmers the source of our ingredients across lodges, we help them establish a level of standardized production to develop into established producers.

We hope you will join us on our development mission—perhaps our most ambitious journey.
