Whilst in lofty Lhasa standards have improved significantly with the arrival of some charming 4 - 5 star properties and the super deluxe St Regis hotel.

On all our quotes we will provide you with a clear categorisation of all hotels using our ‘On The Go’ categories below. Accommodation can range from western-style hotels and charming boutique properties to trekking lodges in the rugged Himalayan Mountains and jungle lodges in Chitwan National Park.

The resort overlooks a blue pine forest and sweet smelling herb garden with the dramatic peak of snow-capped Jhomolhari in the distance
