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.
Twelve contemporary and comfortable rooms are furnished with twin beds, modern, black-slate en suite bathrooms, and terraces with jaw-dropping Annapurna views. Design features include parquet wood floors, bedside up-lights, and vaulted, rafted ceilings.
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.
In Spring and Autumn, visitors gather to witness honey-hunting locals in their daring collection of wild nectar from beehives on perilous cliff faces in the deep Modi Khola.Experience Details
The insistent drumbeat echoes under the starlit sky as Gurung ladies sway to its rhythm, in red velvet tops with heavy beads, nose rings and big gold earrings framing bold smiles.Experience Details
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.
Run by the Gurkha Regiment and served with precision..... One the best stays & dining experiences you will get on the Annapurna hiking trail....
