Guess the Luxury Resort: Lake Views, Outdoor Adventure, Culture


This luxury resort is a couple hours by train plus a half hour drive from the country's capital city, but a world away. Be welcomed in the handsome lobby lounge, with its high ceilings, warm wood, and cozy fireplaces. This is also where a delectable afternoon tea is served daily, replete with locally sourced ingredients and a distinctly local tea experience.

We recommend reserving a Suite with a Lake View; fifth floor suites enjoy spectacular lake views, and the living room can accommodate a crib or a sofa made into a bed for a child.

Take advantage of sunny, clear days to go hiking; a nearby hike reveals peek-a-boo views of the lake and superb mountain views. We also saw claw marks from local bears (don't worry, they're afraid of humans), marking their territory.

Other outdoor activities include fly fishing, paddle boarding, fishing, cycling in the summer; ice climbing and skiing/snowboarding in the winter; and visiting nearby temples and learning woodcarving from local artisans year-round.

Fuel up for these adventures with a generous breakfast (complimentary for TravelSort clients):



Savor either Eastern or Western cuisine for dinner; highlights from a recent dinner were an appetizer of local trout with caviar, and a fantastic mushroom pizza.

If all the outdoor activities leave you a bit sore, repair to the spa for a massage, or soak in the natural hot spring waters, with their rejuvenating properties.
