Atop a 1600m hill on the northern side of Kathmandu Valley, the site of the lodge itself is a delight. While the valley remains shrouded in a winter fog, the sun shines happily at the lodge, conveniently perched above the enveloping clouds. In the summer, the towering hill behind it as well as the overwhelming greenery here, takes the mercury down a notch. Spring at the retreat is a treat. The hillside comes alive with wild flowers and the green soothes the eyes. After a raining afternoon, the smog above the valley clears to offer breathtaking views of the city lights. The monsoon ravishes the hillside, allowing you to see shades of green you will not see elsewhere in the city.
The lodge has a main building with a friendly restaurant; the building also has a conference space for any meet or event. The lodge has a new chimney room building with cozy sitting area, and small bar. The hours are specific especially for the bar section, but guest can always enjoy the ambiance and the room.
