What Dhampus lodge lacks in scale, it makes up for in oversized views. On a clear day, the Phedi and Mardi Valleys are spread out before you, along with Annapurna 1,2,3,4 and South, and the closest and most impressive of the range, Machapuchare —Fishtail Mountain. Eight bright rooms set in a row face the fantastic panoramic views of the Annapurna Range. You’ll find stone floors adorned with Nepalese carpets, blankets and artwork.
Comprising rooms, a restaurant, a bar, and a beautifully landscaped garden terrace, Basanta Lodge feels like a mountainside secret. There’s a real retreat ambiance here, where simple pleasures and natural surroundings take center stage. In the evening, guests gather on the grassy terrace for drinks and foot massages as the sun sets over the mountains then head into the cozy dining room with a roaring fire and small bar for dinner.
