The Last Resort
Lonely Planet review
The Last Resort sits in a beautiful spot on a ridge above the Bhote Kosi river, 101km (61mi) from Kathmandu and just 12km (7.5mi) from the Tibet border. Access is by suspension bridge across the river, and it's here that Nepal's only bungy jump is set up.
Accommodation at the resort is in comfortable standard (four-person) or deluxe (two-person) safari tents, dotted around lovely landscaped grounds, with the focus being the soaring stone-and-slate dining hall and Instant Karma bar. Luxury comes in the form of gas-heated slate showers, a plunge pool and sauna, with massages and yoga often available. The cost of accommodation includes meals and transport to and from Kathmandu. Most people are drawn to Asia's highest bungy jump (you can hear the screams echoing around the valley), plus there's also canyoning, rafting on the Bhote Kosi, trekking, mountain biking and rock climbing, with a range of packages that combine any or all of the above activities. For details of current packages pop into the Kathmandu office, near the Kathmandu Guest House in Thamel.
