Super-easy-going town by the lake. Great place to chill out for a few days. Pokhara has enough guesthouses and cafes with Nepali and foreign food. When you're tired of relaxing, take a yoga class or meditation retreat, take a hike, or cycle around the lake. Or, better yet, go trekking in the Annapurna.

After the Everest base camp trek, we took a bus to Pokhara to relax, recuperate and chill out by the lake. But it turns out that once we saw the scenery here, we regretted not trekking the Annapurna Circuit instead of toward Everest. The mountain views at sunset or under a full moon -- well, it's hard to imagine it getting any better than this, anywhere in the world.

Namaste and warm Greetings from Himalayan Country Nepal!!
My name is Sanjib Adhikari. As an independent trekking guide and tour operator in Nepal, I would like to welcome everyone in my motherland country, Nepal. With the keen interest in the adventure tourism, I have been involved in this field at a very young age. Pursuing my career in different capacities as porter, assistant guide, I have developed myself as an independent trekking guide and leadership in various outdoor activities. Licensed and fully certified from the Government of Nepal, we plan and guide for exploration and adventure throughout Nepal.
A little history:
I myself have been over expeditions to Mera peak, Island peak, Kalapathar, Gokyo peak, Tseryo RI and across many high passes in Nepal, Larkye Pass, Ampulapcha Pass, Chola pass, Renjula pass, Tashilapcha pass, Ganjala pass, Thorong La pass, Tilicho pass, (Mesokantola pass). Within the long span of an adventurous journey, I have extensive guiding experience on Mt. Kailash, Lhasa in Tibet also Ladak and Sikkim in India. Enrollment for 7 years long journey gives me courage to work out for an independent organized trekking agency.
I have guided many international groups especially from Europe, USA, Canada, Australia through the Everest, Annapurna, Langtang, Mustang, Dolpo, Kanchanjunga, Makalu, Manaslu, Ganesh Himal and Helambu regions of Nepal thus have gained diversified experience and extensive knowledge on geography, religion, culture, local flora and fauna and on environmental issues in the areas where I personally organized the treks. We arrange all the customized packages on the basis of your interests and liking. Together with our highly friendly and experienced staffs as well your prior experience or interest, we can develop a personalized program of your interest..
Good food and comfortable accommodation
Trekking is the way of relating to the local community and practicing their life. One can enjoy an accommodation available according to the various regions. Accomodation varied from tea house in the local way and camping in the restricted and remote regions. For any kind of trekking, we make proper arrangement of hygienic food and safe and comfortable place to stay concerning the demand of our visitors. Along with that, we also make assure for maintaining your health condition with our full guidance.
Worry-free logistics and services
My first experience on many trekking routes has made me an expert on making unique trekking itineraries as per the tastes, interests and budget of the western clients. For those international trekkers who want to climb high mountain passes and peaks, I can also organize this challenging and rewarding adventure. We arrange all the necessary logistics necessities which include permit cards, pick up from the airport, national park fee, arrangement of porters and all other necessary requirements.
A Belief in environmental awareness and preservation
We have been organizing the trek in association with the local communities who are in true sense an ecologically aware. We are environmentally concerned with utilizing local resources which are beneficial for the local economy. As well as we sort out our own garbages and the waste disposal .Thus, making our trip fully environment friendly. Relating to the local ethnic communities and learning their unique way of living is also an important aspect of our trekking.
Assured safety and Financial Protection
From time to time I keep upgrading my skills and knowledge by taking refresher trainings on safety, sanitation, first–aid, emergency rescue, hygiene and cooking, safe accomodation. We follow all kinds of safety and precaution method .Though, we assure for making your trip fully secure and safe. We set out the itinerary budget in an economic way with an affordable accommodation and healthy food.

What's not to like about Pokhara? Sure, it's a bit of a tourist trap, and you may tire of the legions of t-shirt salesmen stridently trying to induce a purchase; but this lakeside town surrounded by stunning Himalayan peaks is undoubtedly beautiful, and a great place to rest going to or coming from a trek in the nearby Annapurna massif. Like Kathmandu, it's got a score of good, cheap guesthouses, bars, and restaurants, and a pleasantly relaxed vibe. Venture out on a boat into the lake for some photos (be sure to bargain), or complete the one-day circuit trek around the lake, taking in awesome scenery and a hillside village or two along the way.

Nestled up against the Annapurna mountain range and within 30 (linear) miles to 3 of the ten highest mountains in the world -- Dhaulagiri, Annapurna, and Manaslu, Pokhara is Nepal's second largest city and a hub of activity for Nepali and travelers both. Here you'll find lovely mountain views and a natural launch pad for many an outdoor adventure opportunity in that region.
Although I can't say I passed much time in town, I found my short post-trek stay here to be comfortable and fairly relaxing compared to the much more hectic pace of life in Kathmandu. So needless to say, you too should have no problem turning down the pace and settling in to a more palatable rhythm for the next leg of your trip.
Hire a boat and spend a day (or night) exploring Phewa Tal, the great lake that is at the heart of the city. Or row across and then leave the boat behind while you take the trail up to Shanti Stupa (the World Peace Pagoda) which sits atop a hill on the other side. Surrounded by peaks and forest, this lovely lake makes not only a great daytime outing, it also serves as a central gathering place for local townspeople and travelers alike. Lakeside you'll find a wide range of restaurants with local and international fare, relaxed cafes, lively bars, shops selling everything from souvenirs to mountain gear, and all types of street activity. Stroll among young Nepali couples and family groups gathered along the shore, stop in for a Mo mo, check your email at a cafe, then grab a Nepal Ice or an Everest in time for sunset. No doubt you'll have soon be off on one of the many hiking, mountain biking, trekking, rafting, or even paragliding -- with eagles no less! -- adventures that await. Or just plan to spend a day or two exploring the surrounding area at a slower pace. You certainly won't find many places in the world offering better views for any of these activities.

Like the rest of nepal, Pokhara is simply amazing! The warm weather and stunning lake side make it the perfect place to relax and give your body some time to recover after the grueling, yet magnificent trek through the Anapurnas. Although Pokhara is the third largest city, it is significantly more relaxed than the hustle and bustle of the rickshaw lined streets of Kathmandu. Definitely recommend checking it out!

A laid-back lake-side town that's the base for many back packer services. Cheap and clean accommodation, good food choices, and an array of outdoor activities ranging from trekking in the Himalayas to rafting with the Nepalese national team, to paragliding.

we travelled to Pokhara via Biratnagar, their airport was so tiny, and it was like a local buss stand.. planes were also those small ones without air-conditioning, i remember we had girls throwing up the entire journey.. but alls well that ends well, once we reached pokhara, the beauty of the place made it worthwhile.. pokhara is a hill station, it was winters, so it was really really cold there.. but the view of the himalayas is mind-blowing from pokhra, looks so close to u, its wonderful!!
