This was our first stay in a Songtsam hotel and we really enjoyed it. We drove from the airport in Shangri-La through beautiful countryside and were amazed when the beautiful lodge appeared at the end of the dirt road. In a way, it reminded us of houses in Switzerland. We were welcomed warmly, our luggage was upstairs in a matter...

We have visited this lodge on a number of occasions while on a circuit of the the other Songtsam lodges. In some ways it is our favourite. It is the most tranquil being set in the middle of village with the sounds of everyday life and the the sound of a running stream. As with all the lodges the rooms...

Benzilan is a small city without any charm. But the countryside is quite interesting. After a trekking you deserve a quiet and comfortable place: the Songstan is the place. The people are charming and doing their best for you. The room is quite comfortable with a very nice view on the valley. All you need is there. The restaurant gives...

1) Great hike and picnic lunch; we went on a 2hr guided hike and ended with lunch on a small plateau. Picnic does not quite do justice to the lunch; there were tables and chairs and the setup was lovely. 2) Experience life in a Tibetan village; very tranquil and lovely surroundings. Wheat was in season when we were visiting....

We stayed at Benzilan Lodge for one night. It was our second stop in our 7-day circuit with Songtsam Lodges. Nestled in a narrow canyon off the main town of Benzilan proper, it is a haven of peace and tranquility. The lodge is in the middle of a tiny Tibetan hamlet with a dirt road that leads you up to...

Benzilan Songtsam lodge is only a two hour drive from the Shangri-La lodge. It is located in a small village up a canyon off the main road. The lodge is in the center of the village and is decorated in the traditional Tibetan style. It is a near-perfect haven from the rest of the world. A note about “Tibet”: Many...

We were due to stay here one night but in the end we decided to go on to Shagri La since we had an early flight the next morning. We did however see the rooms, have lunch and then went to see the nearby villages. The location is excellent, and there are a couple of mountain villages about 30 mins...

Our family stopped there between Shangri-La and Meili and we could not have dreamed a better place to relax. We were lucky to have the place by ourselves and the weather was beautiful, especially compared to the cold we experienced the days before and after Benzilan. Sipping white wine on the verandah under the arbour, looking at the blossoms and...

We stopped off at Benzilan along a tour of moat the Songtsam lodges (shangrila-> tacheng->benzilan->meili->shangrila). while benzilqn doesnt quite match tacheng/meili in beauty or shangrila im cache it does have a certain quaint charm that makes it worth an day and night. It is a small lodge in a very small little village. And the staff are especially great. A...

Stayed here for one night as part of a Songtsam Circuit tour. Beautifully decorated, comfortable room. Delicious food with many choices; our meals were included with our overall tour. The lodge is set near a small village and we were able to take a couple of interesting walks in the local area. We loved our 7 night Songtsam Circuit trip:...
