Dhulikhel Lodge Resort (DLR) understands very well that sooner or later you get fed up with urban lifestyle and crave for some isolation with just you and your beloved ones. From the selection of its site to the entire setup, everything at DLR has been thoughtfully designed to provide splendid isolation and excellent services with a personal touch.
Enjoy being in a tranquil area and watch the rural Nepalese life as closely as you wish. Choose what suits your appetite from a wide range of Nepali, Continental, Tibetan, Indian and A-La-Carte cuisines offered in the main restaurant. Food is prepared using the seasonal and fresh fruits and vegetables grown locally. Relax in a cosy seating around the fireplace and try the best of local and imported drinks in the Goreto Bar.
Mr. S P Shrestha will be glad to share a few words and experiences with you during teatime. In no time you will find yourself chatting with him not just about what led him to hospitality business or his futures plans on ecotourism, but also about your own adventures.
Mr. Shrestha is a poplular figure in Dhulikhel, especially amongst the children of Naya Gaun, a small village, where he founded a school named 'Seto Gurans Bal Batika' a few years ago.
Main area of focus in Caring for the Destination:
Enironmental - Forest conservation
Social - Financially supporting a school
Detailed description of the Caring for the Destination Initiative:
Unplanned deforestation has proven to impact the environment adversely, and in a developing country like Nepal, the results are even harsher. The hosts of this resort cannot afford to let that happen in their pristine locality. Therefore, we have been protecting more than 15,000 sq. metres of a nearby green forest against all sorts of invasions.
Measures are being taken to conserve the resources like this so that future generations can enjoy these too. We have been training local people, employing selected ones, and spreading awareness through the rest.
The resort is raising funds and providing financial aid to the school founded and chaired by SP Shrestha. Staying with these self-motivated people will give you a chance to get an insight of how big changes originate from small steps taken one at a time. We will be happy to show you what we are doing and how. And if you really care, we will be happier to learn any of your own ideas that could possibly better this destination and its vicinity.
