Thame is a small, quiet mountain valley, once part of the famous, ancient Tibetan salt trade route, still largely untouched by the effects of modern civilization. MLN Thame lies on the outskirts of town, exquisitely nestled between a snowy ridge on one side and the face of Sumdur Mountain on the other, clinging to which—two hundred meters above the valley—is the fifteenth-century Thame Monastery. Thame Lodge offers all the comforts of the MLN collection even in this small, sparse and remote locale. Each room’s essential feature is the stunning window view, which includes Everest, Thamserku, and KusumKhanguru peaks. A sense of the spiritual abides here. The large lounge and dining hall embrace a traditional monastery aesthetic, with fresh flowers, and walls covered in large Buddhist murals and thangkas. The high ceiling space has a translucent roof that lets in ample sunlight all day long—ideal for group yoga practice, or private meditation.

We stayed 1 nights at YMH Thame on our 13 day trek from Lukla to Gokyo and back. YMH Thame is a newer property and a cut above the typical tea house/lodge that you find North of Namche Bazaar. Ensuite baths have showers, with shower curtains and plentiful hot water. And, like all the YMH properties, they have a nice Happy Hour, excellent meals and staff who are willing to please. This particular YMH has a lovely enclosed courtyard with murals; very pleasant when the sun's out.
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.

With outstanding guide Tanzing Sherpa we crossed Renjo Pass in the snow. In Mountain Lodges of Nepal, Thame, we found a magnificent place to rest, warm shower, healthy food and caring staff. Great place to relax after many days above 5000m.

We stayed in almost all the YMH lodges in the Khumbu and this one, like all the others, was very comfortable, quiet, served excellent food and had a friendly and helpful staff and manager. Please see my review of the excellent trek which was organized by YMH at the site for YMH Lukla(msaincamb).
Thame is well worth a visit. The trail from Namche rolls through pretty villages and scenery and is a relatively easy walk. There is an old and beautifully sited gompa on the mountainside above the lodge and an easy walk to get there for a morning visit. If you have more time and energy you can hike to beautiful views at the summit of Sundar peak at 5200m(my son and our guide Pemba made it while I visited the gompa). Upon an introduction from Pemba, we had the good luck of meeting and speaking with Jamling Tenzing Norgay, one of the sons of the great Tenzing Norgay, who was at the gompa for a dedication of the rebuilding of the gompa following damage there from the 2015 earthquake.
Our room and beds were comfortable and the views overlooking the valley and mountains were stupendous. As at all the lodges, YMH pays attention to aesthetics and this one was no exception. We're very glad we included the Thame lodge on our itinerary.

You have to cross a couple of fields (there are convenient holes in the small stone walls) to get to YMH in Thame – which just adds to the charm of the place.

It's a lovely lodge with very big rooms. When you walk in the door of the lodge, there's a kind of in-door atrium or lounge where you can sit and enjoy a coffee, tea or hot lemon. Nicely decorated – the only draw-back is that you can't enjoy the view from there. But we had lovely views from our room. The restaurant is very tastefully decorated with Tibetan-style furniture.

The staff were very friendly and helpful. We were told when the water was ready for a shower – and it was lovely and hot.

There were electric blankets in the beds.

Thame is a bit off the beaten track – most people on the Everest Base Camp trek don't go to Thame. This means it's quiet compared to the other towns on the Everest route. But it's a very beautiful village and the surroundings are just stunning – as is the trek from Namche to Thame and back. If your itinerary allows it, spend an extra day on a trip to Thame. And the YMH is a really nice lodge to stay in.

The best thing about this place was it is further off the track that most of the tourists take to go to Everest. We passed only a few other people on our hike to the lodge. It was beautiful and we woke up to snow on the ground, making it even more picturesque. We ended up being the only people (with our guide) staying here for the night. The staff were extremely friendly, and welcoming. They set up the fire for us and even put a space heater in our room to go with the electric blanket. The food that they served was excellent. We would definitely recommend the hike to this lodge to get a good feel for what the mountains look like without the crowd of people. The dinning room was nicely hand painted with many different murals.

We hiked from Namche Bazar to Thame and really enjoyed the scenery and this comfortable lodge. It is off the beaten path (EBC trek) with not many people visiting the area; Thame is a very charming Sherpa village with many Everest climbers.

We had to juggle our way to the lodge over rock fences, which added to the charm and excitement to reach the lodge. We had the corner room, which was spacious, with private bath and shower. Hot water for the shower was available between 4 to 5 pm; the hotel even had a hair dryer available!

The dining room was decorated very nicely with fireplace, at times though the temperature of the room got a little bit too hot.

I would definitely recommend the lodge and Thame for trekking.

Yeti Mountain Home Thame was the third of six Yeti Mountain Homes we stayed in. Loved the ambiance. Loved the village. A huge bedroom. Once again - brilliant food and warm welcoming staff. The decor was stunning and the house arrangement interesting.

Nice, clean room with double bed, next to the entrance (sorry, don't recall the room number, the rooms on the other side probably have an even better view). It is cold at night, but the stove is nice and warm. We got very tasty noodle soup for breakfast (after asking if we could have the same as our guide), instead of the regular muesli, toast and eggs. Really enjoyed the luxury of the Yeti Mountain Homes during our trek.

I am not sure how to review the Yeti Lodge, but I say this about all of them. The towels are a bit thin, the beds are too hard, the rooms are cold. BUT, how they wash and dry the towels, goodness only knows. How the mattresses got there in the first place is mind boggling, and it doesn't matter how cold the rooms are as the beds are lovely and warm because the electric blankets are on all the time! These lodges are the height of luxury in this area, and when you have been trekking for 3 - 5 hours all you want to do is get your boots off and have a mug of hot lemon and relax in the lounge where the wood burning stove warms you, in fact you actually get too hot! The food is good, the staff are lovely. No luxuries, but in this area everything is a luxury.

This was the only lodge where the power went off more than once, and the water was cold on our second afternoon. The power was quickly put back on, and the lack of hot water was caused through unexpected snow covering up the solar panels and a slight technical hitch. However, we were quickly supplied with nearly boiling water so that we could have a stand up wash, which was fine given where we were!!

As we had come to expect the food was excellent, the service second to none and the electric blankets welcoming. We were supplied with a very basic electric fire, but that was when the power went off, so we all seemed to choose electric blanket over warm room and turned the fires off. I know this all sounds pretty dire, but by the time you reach Thame you know how luxurious these places are given the area and you very quickly appreciate the basics!! On our second night we were treated to entertainment by the local ladies, and the porters and a few others joined us for a fun evening. The local rice wine was not so readily accepted though!!

To get to the lodge at the end of the trek we had to cross a stream, climb over two stone walls and walk through a couple of fields. We woke up the next day to 4in of snow and in the afternoon we climbed to 4000m. It was all a bit unreal, but an experience that I would not have missed for the world. And at this point I would like to thank Saga, and my husband, for giving me that experience even if it did nearly kill me!!

Beautiful atrium with a ping-pong table! Attentive service, large rooms with private bath, hot water for shower, electric blanket for bed. Three course meal for dinner, breakfast was porridge, eggs, potatoes. Happy hour with free drinks and snacks before dinner. No heat in room but they ran gas heaters in the dining area all day to keep you warm. If the sun is out, the atrium gets nice and warm. Very quiet at night. Wifi was surprisingly good considering the remoteness of the location.
