Ker & Downey Lodges
Ker & Downey offers the finest, most complete adventure program in Nepal, enabling guests to experience all aspects of this wonderful exciting country.
Located in the Annapurna Mountains, Ker & Downey guests follow trails using purpose built lodges, a day walk apart and allow guests to experience in comfort some of the most spectacular mountain vistas in the world.
Trekking in Nepal has always been associated with sleeping in small tents on hard beds or mats, washing in cold water, sharing communal toilets and living fairly basically. Ker and Downey is unique in Nepal as it offers the only program which allows guests to experience the magnificent scenery in style and comfort whilst staying in ensuite rooms with comfortable beds with sheets, blankets, down pillows and hot water bottles.
The entire Nepal operation is based on the strict principles and traditions of the Gurkhas. Born and raised in the shadows of the Himalayas, the legendary Gurkha Regiments have historically been the pride of Nepal. Known as some of the finest soldiers in the world, the hardy Gurkhas carry forward a 200-year tradition of service, loyalty and excellence. As these attributes are wholly compatible with Ker & Downey concept, it is only natural that Gurkhas have been made a central part of the team, eager to share their profound understanding of the areas through which they walk, and as a result, many of our routes are off the tourist trails.
Together with the locally recruited guides, sherpas, porters and lodge staff, guests are assured a level of service and care essential to a safe, yet exciting adventure. Ker & Downey are proud of thier intimate understanding of Nepalese culture and tradition and take pleasure in showing guests the true charm and courtesy for which the Nepalese are known.
