An ocean of tranquillity, your shelter from the biting cold, or a place of rest after the lengthy trek to the pristine waters of Gosainthan, Trishuli welcomes you through its doors. Whether a temporary stop to indulge in a meal or a week-long retreat to restore your zen, a warm and comfortable space with soft lighting greets you.
Stimulate your senses and absorb the ethereal mountainscape during your stay here. Enter a trance in the Reflection Rooms while you soak a sense of nature and harmony the vista provides you. Relish a meal amidst the warm stone walls of the Dining. Explore the extremes the region offers you and dip in the Icy lake or the Hot Spring pool. Allow your mind to run wild while sipping tea and enjoying the gardens in the Solarium. Greet the Himalayan giants each morning and admire the star-studded canopy in the evenings from your very own traditionally crafted cottage.
Built by the indigenous tribes in upcycled wood and stone from the mountains above and powered by geothermal energy from the earth below, the retreat is eco-conscious, sustainable, and self-sufficient. Trishuli redefines luxury by honouring the vernacular and entrusting the local.
