Whether you are an adventure enthusiast or just in need of a relaxing break, guests at Gaikou Lodge are spoilt for choice.

              Our visit to Gaikou Lodge was a wonderful experience. They have beautiful and comfortable suites right up the mountain side on the edge of town. Great food and hospitality!!
