November,22 2019 BY Sonam Tenphel 0 COMMENTS

While Nepal may be the place for adventurous trekking, dangerous white-water rafting, and spectacular jungle safaris, it does not mean that you have to rough it. Whether you are taking in the sights of Everest and Annapurna on the trekking trails or discovering elephants and tigers in the lowland jungles, there is always the option of staying in a luxury hotel or resort so you can get that relaxing spa between adventures and discover the best of Nepal’s luxury hotel scene.

Since the country first opened up to international tourism decades ago, there has been a huge change in the quality of hotel and guest house accommodation, even in some of the most inhospitable areas of the country. Luxury four and five star hotels have popped up in Kathmandu, Pokhara, and other major tourist locations, and even on the trekking trail to Everest Base Camp.

With so many luxurious places to stay around Nepal, you can be spoilt for choice, and you are almost guaranteed to find the hotel or resort of your desire wherever you travel in Nepal. Top of the range accommodations can include luxury lodges, converted colonial mansions, and rural retreats that offer spa treatments and all-organic foods.
