Namaste Lodge is good. I can recommend I was trekking solo. Owner Tenzing was excellent & made big effort to be friendly & allow me enjoy the stay, which I did. His staff were working flat out to serve food, drinks, sort out the endless issues of guests etc Solo trekkers, groups, guides & porters all there, mixing in I had mild altitude sickness & Tenzing showed me into the clinic (located in same building) for a check-over (was impressed how thorough this was, at minimal cost) Main dining room was kept well-heated with 2 stoves, with good social scene
What's very nice is welcome drink, it is some orange dust with hot water, but it was very good. From lodge is very nice view to Gokyo lake and Gokyo Ri. Kind and smiling staffs. Quite warm nights, the valley was without wind. Clean european toilet. Recommended!
Rooms were comfortable, we were on bottom floor, think rooms above would of been nicer, good location and staff very helpful. Largest menu I had seen and warmest main room I had been in. They had 2 pot belly heaters
Originally I planned to stay only 2 nights in Gokyo, but because of this lodge I extended it to 4 nights. Amazing warm rooms, great cuisine, own bakery and mostly very nice and friendly people who operate it made my time time there really unforgettable. I hope I will come back one day for even longer time, whole area of Gokyo is so beautiful.
Cannot say enough amazing things about this lodge. We stayed here for 3 days on our 23 day trek and it was by far the best food of the entire trek we did! More importantly, the friendliness and hospitality of the entire crew cannot be beat.
