As Fishtail Lodge is only accessible by a shuttle float across a lake ensuring a very peaceful location. Set on the edge of the famous Phewa Lake, guests can gaze across to the dense green forest and the famous Fishtail Mountain, a really stunning view. The views make up for the slightly run down quality of the local style cottage bedrooms. Other facilities include a small but pleasant swimming pool and a spacious restaurant and bar surrounding a traditional Nepalese fire place. All profits generated by Fish Tail Lodge are donated to the Princess Jayanti Memorial Trust which provides free cardiac care to underprivileged Nepalese people.
Travel is like love, mostly because it’s a heightened state of awareness, in which we are mindful, receptive, undimmed by familiarity and ready to be transformed. That is why the best trips, like the best love affairs, never really end.Pico Iyer
