Thoughtful Design Touches

Warm, dry, spacious rooms are softly furnished with Tibetan rugs and English linens, stunning views, thoughtful design touches, and an indulgent bathroom with hot running water—you won’t find a more perfectly cozy antidote for tired legs. If that’s top of mind, do ask in advance about massages and holistic wellness treatments on offer.

Vibe

Lively Location

Chill and vibrant. From the lodge’s high location, all rooms and the lounge offer clear views of the town’s iconic C-shaped layout, and the intensely close Kongde mountain across the valley. In almost any season, clouds might blanket the bazaar during late mornings and late afternoons. However, nights and morning are usually clear and fine times for sightseeing.

monastery entrance

Approaching a working monastery certain sounds begin to fill the air: the fluttering of prayer flags, the hum of monks chanting in unison, the periodic blowing of a traditional trumpet, the crashing of cymbals and the thud of ritual drums.

Tip

Remember, Namche is the last opportunity to buy anything you might need on your trip, or to enjoy civilization. If it’s the weekend, definitely stop by the market where Tibetan traders come by way of high passes through the Himalayas with all kinds goods to sell. While you are out at the bazaar, stop into the Sherpa Barista café for warm hospitality, great coffee and surprisingly fantastic pizzas. The locally owned and operated Hermann Helmers Bakery is a great spot for a rooftop breakfast or to pick up hiking snacks.
