On a ridge just a stone-through from the famous Sathighar Bhagawati temple lies Sunkoshi Adventure Retreat. We know it as “Ram’s resort” simply because it’s Ram Thapaliya who’s running it – and he’s done so for two decades. Ram knows the area in and out – he grew up there – and he’s organising rafting on the nearby river, amazing village walks through different ethnic communities, and cosy evening bonfires. Enjoy a local tea on the roof terrace with a view of the Himalayan mountains and deep valleys on either side – it is breath-taking.
Ram has a dozen rooms for rent, furnished in traditional wooden style, and a cosy restaurant, bar as well as a conference hall. His always attentive chef, Prem, offers delicious cuisine and homemade snacks! It’s just a two hour ride from Kathmandu and yet you’ll feel like light-years away from the buzz of the city. Visit Ram’s website and facebook for more information and a first glimpse of beautiful Sathighar.
