The range of accommodaton choices available in Nepal are as varied as Nepal is itself. From deluxe resorts in Dhulikel and luxury hotels in Kathmandu to local homestays and just about everything in between. As part of our tailor made service we will advise on your accommodation options dependent upon what exactly it is you wish to experience, see and do in Nepal. It goes without saying that in the remote and lesser parts of Nepal options are limited. However, even in some 'off the beaten track' locations a number of rather decent lodges are springing up. Certainly in the Everest, Annapurna and even Langtang regions the basic teahouses have been largely superceded by a higher standard of trekking lodge. The Everest and Annapurna regions have also seen a limited number of even higher standard of comfort/luxury lodges opening (see Luxury Treks section). The days of camping and roughing it completely are a thing of the past here. Of course in Kathmandu and Pokhara there's the full range of accommodation levels, as well as at other popular places too like Chitwan and Bardia.
To give you a better idea of the range of Nepal hotels, we have suggested some of the places we've selected & chosen not only for their standards, but friendliness, location and atmospheric experience. Just click on the link below to find out more about a variety of accommodation choices in Nepal. In places like Kathmandu and Pokhara in particular, there are of course lots of other accommodations options that we can arrange if you'd prefer. In other places like Nuwakot and Thasang, sometimes the accommodation option is the only one!
Bhutan is.....different! That you can only visit Bhutan via a licensed Bhutan tour operator (like us), particularly as it is the operator who will obtain your Bhutan Visa (you can't get one yourself), along with the minimum daily tariff for Bhutan tourists....well, it all means that you can't just travel to Bhutan independently. Bhutan does not wish to cater for the backpacker market and intentionally desires to maintain it's rather exclusive destination status. As a result of this deliberate policy to keep Bhutan special, there isn't the wide range of hotels in Bhutan, particularly if compared to Nepal as Nepal receives 50 times more tourists. Bhutan only opened its doors to toursim in the 1970's and prior to that there were no hotels anywhere.
Standard tourist accommodation for Bhutan is part of the minimum daily tariff fee. Hotels in Bhutan are not widespread and are generally concentratedin the principle tourist areas...Paro, Thimpu, Punakha, Trongsa, Gangtey and Bumthang. Unlike Nepal there are no trekking lodges (aka teahouses), so all Bhutan treks generally involve camping. This is how Bhutan wants it to be. As a result most Bhutan hotels are pretty similar
However, in recent years there has been a controlled development of Bhutan luxury hotels e.g. Amankora
