Sherpa Hospitality Group has launched its new brand, Mountain Lodges of Nepal (MLN), an evolution of the former Yeti Mountain Home and Ker & Downey Nepal which comprises seven lodges in the Everest region and eight in Annapurna.
Designed to capture the essence of Nepal and honour the traditions of mountain hospitality, MLN is a collection of 15 family-owned premium lodges that have undergone upgrading. It also offers challenging but accessible treks along the Great Himalaya Trails.
Situated along the idyllic Dudh Koshi river about 2,600m above sea level, Phakding Lodge is the first newly-transformed lodge to be unveiled since MLN brand’s debut. The property boasts a rock-climbing facility, vegetable garden, and a helipad-turned-restaurant and lounge.
Launching in 1Q2023, Deboche Lodge in the Everest region will be a new-build, and offer views of Nepal’s iconic mountains, including Mount Everest.
MLN will also offer immersive experiences such as helicopter rides for breakfast at Mount Everest and honey hunting of the wild nectar from the beehives on perilous cliffs.
At present, Sherpa Hospitality Group has a total of 18 properties. As part of the group’s pipeline, 1Q2023 will also see the opening of Shinta Mani Mustang – the first Shinta Mani Hotel outside of Cambodia. Other upcoming properties set to launch under MLN include new lodges in the Annapurna region.
