Everest Summit Lodge Mende
Everest Summit Lodge Mende, Mende, Nepal
The lodge at Mende (3,700m) is perched high on a ridge above the main Tibetan trading route with wonderful views of the surrounding mountains like Kongde Ri, Thamserku, Kang Taiga, Kusum Kangru and Khumbila.
With a monastery and a few monks as year-round neighbours, Mende has an amazing sense of tranquility and peace.
The 20 rooms all have attached bathrooms with hot and cold running water, wonderful 3 course meals are served in the dining room, which has great views across to the snow-capped mountains.
The lodge is fully powered by the hydro-electric plant in Thame, up the valley from here.
