Sanctuary Lodge, Birethanti

Situated on a promontory overlooking the Modi River just north of the scenic village of Birethanti, the Sanctuary Lodge (a Kerr & Downey lodge at 3,600 ft) has half a mile of river frontage, dramatic views of Machapuchare – the sacred ‘Fishtail’ mountain, and beautifully landscaped gardens.

The lodge offers an unusually high degree of style and comfort. Hand-built by local craftsmen, the lodge accommodates just 16 guests in spacious and comfortable en suite rooms. There is also a central lounge / dining area with a library. Excursions can be made to the school at Birethanti and to watch colourful mule trains cross the suspension bridge over the Modi Khola. The nearby subtropical forests are excellent for botanical and bird watching expeditions.
