Annapurna RegionBandipur Lodge
Katmandu

Located a three-hour hike up from historic Bandipur village through a lovely unspoiled valley surrounded by verdant forest, as its name suggests, this 12-room garden lodge is positioned for sublime views of a trio of peaks: Manaslu, Annapurna, and Dhaulagiri.

Heroic Private Balcony Views

Rooms are warm and welcoming, large and simply decorated. En-suite bathrooms powered by solar electricity elevate your experience well above the local norm. The room’s true worth lies in the heroic view of the Himalayas from each private balcony or veranda, where it’s all too tempting to sit and marvel for much of the day, and on moonlit nights.

Vibe

Scandi Meets Nepali

The boutique, intimate feel here inspires tranquility and focus. Uncluttered white walls and honey-colored woods bring a Scandi vibe to match the clarity of the mountain air, while traditional Nepali textiles and brightly painted exteriors bring in the vibrant local culture. Evenings begin with an open bar, and drinks served around a roaring fire. Almost throughout the season, communal breakfast can be enjoyed outside.
