Basanta Lodge is located on the outskirts of Dhampus, and therefore is a good place to start or end a trek.

There are seven en-suite rooms at Basanta, and it is famed for its excellent food and service. The owner of the lodge, I.V Gurung, is wonderful, and as an ex Gurkha has many stories up his sleeve which he is more than happy to share around the fire.

The gardens are the best place to take in the spectacular views, and look out towards Pokhara. Fishtail Mountain, Annapurna Two and Annapurna Four, all of which form part of a magnificent panorama clearly visible from here.
