Nurtured by Nature

Summit River Lodge is a eco-friendly oasis located in the countryside, between Kathmandu and Pokhara . With just 16 rooms, and over 20,000 square feet of nature, enjoy the luscious environment of the mid-hills of Nepal in the peaceful abode we have built over years.

Our team are comprised of mostly locals to the area, and our Management are experienced professionals in the adventure travel industry in Nepal for the last five decades. We welcome you to experience our warm hospitality and take a breather in our open-plan lodge.


Dates for your diary

September Weather

Our most beautiful time of the year is always September. We're gifted with the bluest of skies, and the balmiest days. It's a surprise to many that this is so, given that we are known for being a summer destination, but the humidity can be a bit overwhelming for those used to drier climates. These photos were taken from the Kitchen and Dining Room Area, and as you can see, the whole lodge is surrounded by the giant rolling hills that Gorkha is famous for.

Nepali New Years

This Nepali New Year we will be having an Acoustic Unplugged Night with the Jung Trio! We wanted to create a mellow atmosphere to ring in the New Year, so do enjoy the pleasant live music from this talented trio. We enjoy collaborating with this group over the years, and their music will be a perfect entry into the New Year. A lot of our guests ask us if it's swimming weather, and with temperatures already increasing above 30 degrees during the day, we can say that Summer in Kurintar has indeed begun! If you're looking for a relaxing getaway, and a quiet place to spend with family, call us at 9801151166 to make your reservation.   [caption id="attachment_494" align="aligncenter" width="640"] Acoustic Unplugged Night with the Jung Trio[/caption]


We travel not to escape life,

but for life not to escape us.

Superior Rooms

We have six rooms in this category and they are adjacent to each other. Each room has a single bed, and a queen size bed as well. With individual AC units in all rooms, no matter how hot the season, our rooms are designed to keep you cool with their high ceilings, and darker interiors to keep the heat away.

These rooms are also more spacious than your standard room, and with the extra bed configuration allows for you to turn this into a triple room share, which saves costs!

Gaun Ghar

Our Gaun Ghar is more of an experiential room and mimics what a traditional room in this countryside would look like. It’s a small space, with a private balcony overlooking the swimming pool, and it’s perfect for the adventurous couple who want to stay somewhere different.

Summit Suite

Our latest addition to the Lodge, the Summit Suite is a perfect cozy suite for a couple celebrating their special days. Our favourite part of this space is the private view from the river deck outside the room! It’s perfect for having a candle-lit dinner overlooking the Trishuli.

“A Village Within A Village”

Our property is shaped like a horse-shoe, and within it, are small forests we have maintained. Most of the flora and fauna are local to the region, and grow wild in the summer time. Our rooms are spread across 20,000 square feet of nature, and it is this charming layout that has so many locals coming back time and time again.

Worth every penny

The place is amazingly beautiful. I was told that the place was built under the theme “hide” so is 30 minutes walk from the main highway. The rooms are also built on the same theme so are placed in good distance from each other. The place is very peaceful. They do not serve food in rooms but there are good options available at the bar and restaurant. Rooms are minimal and comfortable. Worth every penny.

Perfect for Family Getaway!

We spent 2 night with our kids. We had a amazing time at Summit River Lodge. Lodge itself is surrounded by greenery and has its own kind of beauty but what makes more special is Staff and environment there. All staffs are really hardworking to make guests happy and comfortable and we appreciate it so much. My son still misses swimming and yummy meatballs.
Perfect for family getaway!!!
We will be back again!
Thank you

The space is amazing

The place is great. Area is big and they have many rooms. The compound is huge, which includes swimming pool, seperate dining and kitchen. The rooms are clean, neat and tidy. The foods were also really great.
The place is in the other side of the river, so the noise and pollution from the highway is not felt. The space is amazing and the staff are super welcoming.

Great Ambience and Superb Hospitality

We had a very enjoyable two-night stay at Summit River Lodge. We felt very close to nature while there. The hotel blends with nature and is also very eco-friendly. At the same time, it has the amenities to make the stay comfortable. The food was superb and the hospitality was amazing. All the staff members were very friendly and responsive to our needs and made every effort to make our stay comfortable. We were also impressed that the lodge employed many locals and also bought many of the needed produces locally. Thank you.

Great escape from Kathmandu

The Summit River lodge is just a 3 hour drive from Kathmandu enroute to Chitwan/Pokhara close to the village of Kurintar. It offers comfortable accommodation in a semi tropical environment away from the maddening crowd. Great service and food at a reasonable price. Love the swimming pool and a hike to the nearby waterfall is highly recommended. Been here some 6+ times and loved it every time.

We loved the food here

Nothing can compare to the amazing cuisine served here. And you shouldn’t miss a hike to the natural swimming pool and the beach. Love the place.
