The Detail

The Himalaya Lodge is located at 6,560 feet / 2,000 metres and overlooks the village of Ghandruk, famous for its slate roofs and the truly fantastic views over the peaks of Annapurna South, Hiunchuli, Gangapurna and Machhapuchhre rising up beyond the village. It is one of the larger villages in the Annapurna Region and famous for a great source of Gurkha soldiers and vibrant Gurung culture. Ghandruk is located on the main trekking path to Annapurna Base Camp on the ridge above the Modi Khanda Valley, and also has a path to Ghorepani and Poon Hill.  The hike up to Ghandruk from the valley floor is a little steep, but the destination is absolutely worth the huff and puff to get there. Guests generally stay one or two nights here, having the option to mooch around the village (there is an interesting museum) or take a day trek to other nearby villages or the Temple of the Water Goddess located above the town. Himalaya Lodge has 11 very comfortable en-suite rooms all opening out on it the veranda and with views overlooking the mountains and village. There are black-slate bathrooms with hot showers. There is a central dining room containing an inviting fireplace.
