Setting

Annapurna RegionLa Bee Lodge
Katmandu

Landruk lies on the opposite side of the Modi Khola Valley from Ghandruk—meaning you have to walk down, cross the suspension bridge, and back up. Half way up the mountainside, the freshly built La Bee lodge is a crescent of green and white terraced bungalows in classic Nepalese style.

Dining With Views

The pleasures at La Bee Lodge are simple: A fireside gin and tonic in a cozy dining room with picture windows; a delicious chef-made meal; being woken by the happy clink of a tea tray at your door, and the pink morning glow on the Himalayas; breakfast at a sunny outdoor table; yoga amid neat gardens with views that will capture your heart.

Tip

La Bee is the perfect spot for a body and soul cleansing yoga retreat. Nearby Landruk is a typical village of the Gurung people—aka the proud Gurkhas. It is famous for its honey hunters who climb up flimsy bamboo ladders to collect honeycomb from sheer cliff faces.
