Welcome to Mystique Highland Resort


I am very happy to present our family heritage resort to your travel diaries. First of all, I would like to welcome you to spend your nights in our prestigious resort.

This resort was built in 2010. The construction finished around 2013. We started hosting guests from 2014. We run this hotel with my wife(Radha), son(Anup) and daughter in law(Shova).

Our resort is in Astam. It is a village where Adhikari first-born used to live. It has wonderful view of panoramic mountains - The Annapurna and The Machhapuchhre Himalayan Range. It is also the starting peak of the famous Mardi-Himal Trek. Astam was a part of Dhital Village Development Committee and now a part of Machhapuchhre Rural Muncipality Ward No. 6.

At an height of 1500m, you can experience the natural wonders, cultural and religious events, and traditional lifestyle of people in Astam. A typical occupation of Astam is Agriculture - mostly farming.

I would also like to welcome you to our tea garden that spans over 20 romanies of land facing the mountains.

About Me


I am Nandalal Adhikari. I was born in the boundaries of Mystique in the old house. I did my primary schooling in Bhumeshwor MaVi (Astam), secondary schooling in Bhedabari School, higher-secondary and bachelor studies in Prithvi Narayan Campus and, master studies in Tribhuwan University. I am a scholar of Chemistry(Inorganic Chemistry).



My social leadership started at my late 20s. I was elected as Chairperson of then-Dhital Village Development Committee (now-Machhapuchhre Rural Municipality Ward No. 6). It was during my tenure that we opened the track from Melbot to Dhampus (Melbot-Jhijirka-Astam-Dhital-Hyangjakot-Dhampus). Now it is a part of Machhapuchhre Ring Road. In the same tenure, first transmission line was drawn to the village and first electrification project was done in Dhital VDC. The water was still at scarcity. I supervised the formation of Drinking Water Project from Dhampus to Astam.

As an academic scholar I work as a lecturer of PN Campus. I teach my students Chemistry. I also worked as Assistant Campus Chief of Prithvi Narayan Campus for more than 8 years. I worked as Campus Chief of PN Campus for a brief period of time.
