In the lap of Annapurnas

Rupakot Resort offers the perfect getaway spot, pampering guests in the lap of luxury amid stunning views of the Annapurnas. The sprawling estate sits on top of Rupakot Hill, 1,100m above sea level, giving guests a sweeping view of Lake Begnas and Rupa in the valley below.

The spectacular view is reason enough to wake up early to catch the sunrise, though the lavish rooms may persuade you otherwise. With queen-sized beds, an en-suite bathroom and private balcony, you may find yourself perfectly content with staying in the room all day.

Start your day right with a meal at Panorama Restaurant. Executive Chef Raj Lama whips up a variety of delicious fare, from traditional Nepali dishes to continental classics.

The newly-opened 42-room resort grows its own organic greens and root vegetables and has a small dairy farm. It also uses biogas to power its facility.

Rupakot’s environmental ethos makes it an ideal place for nature lovers, with ample hiking and mountain biking trails, and plenty of opportunities for bird watching. Take a 30-minute walk up to the nearby temple, or take the path less travelled and follow in Prince Charles’ footsteps along the Royal Trek route. Whether you are looking for adventure or some peace and quiet, Rupakot Resort is the perfect place for a weekend getaway.
