Located in the Annapurna Mountains, the Ker and Downey Lodges offer the perfect opportunity to experience trekking in the Himalaya in luxury and comfort. With hot showers, comfortable beds and great food, these lodges are the best on offer whilst trekking.
There are four lodges all set an easy day walk apart from each other. Each lodge accommodates between 14 and 20 people. Every room in each lodge has an en-suite bathroom with hot running water and everything is provided from sheets and blankets to hot water bottles, down jackets, scarves and hats. You will trek for around five to six hours each day, with your English speaking guide and porter who will carry everything for you, even your water bottle.
Why we like Ker & Downey Lodges
Trekking in Nepal has always been associated with sleeping in small tents on hard beds or mats, washing in cold water, sharing communal toilets and living fairly basically. Ker and Downey is unique in Nepal as it offers the only program which allows guests to experience the magnificent scenery in style and comfort. The company pride themselves on taking an intimate understanding of Nepalese culture and tradition and take pleasure in showing visitors to this region the true charm and courtesy for which the Nepalese are known.
Facilities at the lodges include a main dining room and bar where there is a happy hour each evening. There are beautiful gardens in each of the lodges. In most of the main dining halls, there are lovely fireplaces where guests group around on colder evenings. Every room in each lodge has an en-suite bathroom with hot running water and everything is provided from sheets and blankets to hot water bottles, down jackets, scarves and hats.
Activities and Guiding
All of the purposes built lodges are a days walk apart on the trail and allow guests to experience in comfort some of the most spectacular mountain vistas in the world. The locally recruited guide, sherpa, porters and lodge staff ensure a level of service, essential to a safe, yet exciting adventure.
Located in the Annapurna mountains, reached either a five-hour drive from Kathmandu or a short one hour flight to Pokhara airport. Enquire for private helicopter transfers at the trail heads if tight on time.
