Himalaya Lodge, Ghandruk

The lodge is constructed around a 19th century Gurung village house and accommodates 16 guests in an attractive and traditionally designed bedroom wing with a covered veranda.

Ghandruk, with its attractive slate-roofed houses, is a fascinating place to visit. For years the village served as a major recruiting centre for the Gurkha regiments and retired soldiers occupy many of the houses. It is also renowned for its rugs, hand-woven to this day by the womenfolk of the village, and is the headquarters for the Annapurna Conservation Area Project, which promotes many innovative ecological projects involving the local people.

  • It has been wonderful to discover that there remain places like this in the world, where one can find peace amid wild nature. This has been the highlight of our stay in Colombia and we look forward to telling our friends about it.
