Surroundings

Superview is located in the foothills of the heavenly Annapurna range and is surrounded by culturally and naturally rich villages and towns that are incredibly earthy.

Snow mountain behind behind a big green hill

Fishtail, seen on the background, is one of the very few vigin places on earth. It such a dangerous peak to ascend that, as the tale has it, after no one that went to climb the mountain came back, the government altogether banned anyone from mountaineering it. Mount Fishtail (Or Machhapuchre, in Nepali, which literally translates to fish tail) is of great religious value for Hindus as it is believed to be dwelled by the lord of the lords.
The hill on the foreground is our home, Sarangkot!

This is the way one takes on his way Sarangkot. As we know how way leads on to ways, this too is just a way that preceeds the ways to other soul-touching Himalayan pilgrimages.

Old stone house

Stones, mud and wood are Nepali's favorite materials for construction.
A two-hour drive from the lodge takes you to Kwivang, a traditional Gurung community village on the edge of Mardi river, glacier river that flows from Mardi Himal.

Stone-paved alley

Villagers of Kwivang have paved fine stones all throughout their neighborhood. This is an extraordinary example of love and tribute these villagers have shown towards their ancient construction material, which if done properly produces so much finer and unique work than the stereotypical construction materials do.
