Aside from Kathmandu, almost every visitor to Nepal heads to Pokhara.  Whether it’s to start a trek in the Annapurna or just to chill in the more relaxed environment of this lake city, Pokhara has something to offer everyone.

There are a number of things visitors to Pokhara should do, however, and these can be broken down into easy day tours. Depending on your schedule it is recommended visitors spend at least two or three days in Pokhara. Longer if you can!

Below are two samples of day itineraries, which are part of a 2 night package, including an English speaking guide and air conditioned car.

Davis Falls, located 2 km southwest of the airport, is a thundering waterfall named after a Swiss couple who fell in during the early 1960’s. Today there is much less chance of falling into the fast flowing stream as it is all safely railed off.

Nearby the falls are a series of caves including Mahendra Cave with its stalagmites and stalactites and statue of Lord Shiva; the Bat Cave, a smaller cave, providing home for a colony of bats, and Gupteswor Mahadev Cave which, after a low long tunnel, opens out into a huge open cavern and deep gorge from where, with a bit of scrambling, visitors can view Davi’s Falls.

Located above the lake is the white Shanti Stupa or Peace Pagoda, shimmering in the sun.  This is the perfect place to take in views of the lake and surrounding mountains, particularly at sunset.

There are two ways to get there – either boat across the lake and walk up through the forest, or drive around the lake and up the hill to the stupa.

Day 2: Pokhara Full Day Tour

  • Time: 7 hours
  • Accommodation: Hotel

Sarangkot is located at 1,600m and about 45 minutes from Pokhara.  Famous for its sunrise view it is a stunning place to view the Annapurna Range, Pokhara and Fewa Lake.

Trips up Sarangkot begins in the dark, to reach the top in time to watch the sun come up over the Himalayas, lighting the snow-capped mountains in a warm orange glow.

There are several refugee camps in Pokhara, the nearest to Davis Falls being Tashi Ling where visitors can buy handicrafts and see Tibetan carpets being handmade in the carpet factory and showroom.

Set in almost 6 hectares of landthe International Mountain Museum allows visitors to learn more about Himalayan ascents, Himalaya peoples, and the geology and flora and fauna of the Himalayas. There are interactive displays, video films, a climbing wall, restaurant, and model homes to be explored in this fascinating and spacious museum.

Day 3: Pokhara to Kathmandu (Flight), Morning Boating

  • Time: 4 hours
  • Accommodation: Hotel

The reason Pokhara exists as a tourist destination is partly that it is the setting off point for Annapurna treks and partly because of its beautiful lake. Visitors can take a variety of boats on the lake to simply enjoy the experience or to row over to Barahi Temple in the center of the lake for worship or to witness others at prayer.

The temple is a two-storied Hindu temple dedicated to Goddess Durga.  Saturday is the busiest day with devotes making animal sacrifices there.

Best Experience Ever!

This was by far one of the coolest things i’ve done in my entire life. Super challenging and super rewarding all at once! Madan and Rupesh were some of the greatest trek guides that I’ve ever had on any continent – they were so knowledgeable about the history of the trek and they ensured that we were deeply rooted in the cultural experience along the trek. They were also incredibly caring – which is important when you are trekking to new altitudes that you have never been before.
