Lying at the very end of Lukla bazaar, a ten-minute walk from the airport, MLN Lukla often serves as the first stop at the start of a trek, or the end of it. But that’s still enough time for you to enjoy the local treat in all of the town’s shops, cafes and pubs and the sweeping views of Lukla bazaar and surrounding mountains. The aesthetic here, as with all the Mountain Lodges of Nepal in the Everest region, is a combination of Sherpa heritage and contemporary Himalayan home, in wood, stone, and glass. The extravagant windows, both in guest rooms and common areas, boast deep wood frames that double as lounging spaces for admiring the view—for perched slightly higher than the rest of the town, guests here get a spectacular sight of the LuklaRi peaks. A grand Buddhist shrine fitted with prayer wheels centers the sprawling lobby, shared by a fully stocked bar and typically some international guests. Upstairs, the dining room is indulgently ornate with traditional Sherpa murals on walls and ceilings.

Generally the welcome, staff and food was very good but you pay for a Yeti Mountain location to get a hot shower and have a better maintained en suite room than the other team houses. The lack of hot water was painful after a 22km hike from Namche. The service and food were very good and the electric blanket welcome after a tough 2 weeks but you pay for the full package and I didn’t want to know that the solar water heating was problematic!

Dear Guest, Thank you for your precious feedback. Please accept our sincere apologies for the inconvenience caused during your stay. We have noted your feedback and shall definitely renovate it immediately. As for the hot water, we have to rely on sun and if there is no sun, the only alternate is hot water bucket shower which for this we would really appreciate our guest to understand the location and feasibility. Whereas, we are glad to know that you had a good experience regarding our services. Our team shall be pleased to hear good reviews from you.

Room: We had a king-sized bed with a garden view. The room was large and had a nice desk and working outlets. We had a private flush toilet (& toilet paper!), a working sink, and a hot shower. The showers are solar powered so aren't available until later in the afternoon. Shampoo and soap is even provided. The bed had an electric blanket and was so comfy after the EBC Trek.

Food & Dining room: We were two of three guests in the lodge, so had particularly great service. There was a happy hour with snacks and tea and dinner had three courses. They were accommodating to all dietary restrictions (we don't eat meat, and the chef made us something special). The food is downright delicious and the dining room is super warm as you're seated right next to the stove. Unlimited tea & hot water.

Location: It's a couple streets farther away than some of the other guesthouses, but that's because the grounds are their own oasis away from the noise of Lukla. It only took about 5 min. to get back into the heart of Lukla, so you're not missing out.

Other: Wifi was good in the common areas, if that matters to you.

We stayed at YMH Lukla on the last night of our 13 day trek from Lukla to Gokyo and back. YMH Lukla is an older property but it is very clean, well-maintained and seems to be the most ornately decorated of the group. Like all the YMH properties, they have a nice Happy Hour, excellent meals and staff who are willing to please. Fpod here seems to be a slight cut above the other YMH's, perhaps because they are near the airport. Plentiful hot water for the shower was welcome after 12 days on the trail. The lodge sits right at the trailhead going to Namche and is about a 10 minute walk to Lukla airport.
We arranged this trip through Geographic Expeditions out of San Francisco and they worked with Kathmandu Travel to make all local arrangements. A special shoutout to our guide, Tanzing Sherpa who, at age 33, is knowledgeable, seasoned and steady. He seems to know everyone in the Khumbu, gave great advice on making some changes to the itinerary when he saw our capabilities, and was a real cheerleader when bad colds slowed us down towards the end of our 13 day trek. If you plan a custom hike in the Everest region I recommend that you seek him out through YMH or Kathmandu Travel.

Excellent Lodge, definitely the nicest in Lukla. The grounds are beautiful, the room was very comfortable and the electric blankets greatly appreciated. The shower had unlimited hot water which isn't the case in all lodges in Lukla. Most impressive was the service. Divya, the hostess, was amazing. From greeting us upon our arrival with hot tea, to escorting us to our room and then serving us rum pum at "happy hour" and later providing us with a delicious dinner, she was there to meet any need or question. She also brought hot tea to our room at 6am, and then served us a hot breakfast in the dining room. She is a true asset to the lodge and made our stay memorable.

Good location for an early flight out of Lukla. Attractive laid out gardens with fine stone Lions on the approach steps. Great service by the staff. Welcomed with warm towels and black tea. Good Rum punch with Pop Corn in Happy Hour in the lovely highly decorated (including ceiling) warm lounge with traditional wood burner stove. Veey tasty supper and packed breakfast ( due to v early departure for flight (5am)). Had attractive bedroom over Reception with surpringly very modern fully working hot shower/ enclosure. The electicity for the electric blanket was not available unitially due to Inverter issues but all came good before long. Recommend stay for recovery after your trek. Close to main high street for shops and cafes.

This is a review for yeti mountain home in manjo and namche bazaar. We stayed at each stop for one night. While we were very cold and only basic heating amenities are provided, the staff was accommodating and helped us the best way they could. I heard this this the best hotel in both places…due to altitude logistics. If our family treks again here, it would be in September and not December.

I was climbing Mount Lhotse and had to return to Lukla for some rest as I fell ill. I stayed here for 4 nights in May 2024 and the experience was excellent. The manager Anil Tamang personally looked after my every need. The other staff Puja & Laxmi were extremely nice. The food was excellent and much different to what is generally served in the Khumbu. My ensuite room was perfect and the bed was very comfortable. Highly recommended.

We stayed here on our last night after 12 days of trekking. The hosts were incredibly kind and generous. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The food for breakfast and dinner was quite good. This was the comfort of a tea house we needed after a few previous rough nights in other places.

I booked our reservation with Agoda. After choosing 2 people in one room I did not notice the voucher I received was for 1 person. I emailed the hotel directly a week before our trip to confirm our reservation for my husband and myself. We received an email addressed to both of us confirming our reservation. Several hours after checking in we were informed the rate we paid through Agoda $125. US dollars/per night, was for one person and that we needed to pay an additional $60. per night for the additional person in the room. No meals were included in this rate. Based on our experience of staying in many hotels in the area during our 2 week trek, this hotel is very over priced.

Thank you for your feedback and sharing your experience.We are very sad about your experience.But i am sure you have your agoda voicher with you which states 1 room for 1 head only which means a room for one person.You misunderstood it and came as two when your booking was for 1 person only..We confirmed 1 twin bedded or double bedded room for 1 person only.For more clarification you can check a room of 1 person & 2 person and also re check your voucher.We are however extremely sorry for your experience.But if you had understood it while booking with agoda, things wouldn't have been so hard.

I stayed at the Yeti Mountain Home, Lukla in 2017 and when I arrived, the hotel manager “Ram” explained that the electricity in the whole of lukla was down and that he would turn on the generator if it continued. Little did I know that this is the norm as I returned again in April 2018 only to hear exactly the same “story “ on arrival. It got worse this time because in addition to no electricity, when we got up early next morning, there was not only NO hot water to get a shower but NO COLD WATER even to brush teeth or flush the toilet,,,!!!! When I asked for a discount as they couldn’t even provide the basics........RAM started to get aggressive with me. My girlfriend started videoing it on her mobile so he calmed down. I left and have just paid $70 by Bank transfer when I got home. The whole hotel is an expensive CON!!! You’re better just staying at one of the regular tea houses in the lukla where you’ll get much better service and value for money
