For seekers of true solace and a liveable seclusion during their trip to Pokhara, The Butterfly Lodge is a definite choice.
The lodge is composed of simple 2-storeyed buildings resembling the houses seen in villages and small towns of Nepal. To match the surrounding greenery, they are painted in 2-3 contrasting shades of green. They are either roofed with corrugated sheets or have sunny rooftops with railings round the edges.
The best feature of the property is the big green garden. Varieties of plants and trees and plenty of free space make it suitable for all seasons. Benches, shades, collapsible couches, swings, etc. are available for relaxation and for any other purpose you deem fit.
The lodge is located about 30 metres west of the main road of Lakeside, near Hallan Chowk, Pokhara. Hiring a taxi from the airport or the major bus-parks normally costs USD 3, which will take you to the lodge in less than 10 minutes. The figures come down to USD 2 and 7 minutes while driving from the Tourist Bus Park.
Hotel Address: Lakeside, Baidam, Pokhara
From Pokhara Airport drive to Mustang Chowk and from there turn south-east towards Lakeside via Camping Site. A few blocks past Barahi Chowk and just before reaching Hallan Chowk, turn right. You will see the lodge about 30 metres from the junction.
