Pokhara

The second largest city in Nepal, Pokhara sits in its eponymous valley, and is the second largest city in Nepal, home to about 26,000 people. Its subtropical forests rise to mountains that loom 8,000 meters (24,246 feet) over the surrounding lowlands, making for a striking contrast between the lush green of rich rice terraces, and the stark white of the snowcapped mountains. Because of the elevation, temperatures in Pokhara are mild year-round, and snowfall in the winter is confined to some of the higher hills.

EXPERIENCES

EXPERIENCES

Caving

Caving enthusiasts will enjoy the Gupteswar Madadev Cave located at the southern tip of Pokhara, and dedicated to the Hindu god Shiva. Alternately, visit the Chamare Gufa Bat Cave, home to a large colony of roosting bats.

Cycling

Explore the charming villages, lush valleys and lovely lakes around Pokhara by bicycle, traveling as far as you wish and at your own pace.

Gurkha Memorial Museum

Visit the Gurkha Memorial Museum. The Gurkhas are legendary warriors from Nepal who waged war against the British East India Company in the early 19th century, when the British Empire attempted to extend its reach beyond India’s borders. Later, Gurkhas were recruited by the British and gained a reputation as stalwart fighters who participated in wars ranging from the Anglo-Afghan War to World War II.

International Mountaineering Museum

Visit Pokhara’s International Mountaineering Museum, which offers fascinating displays of artifacts of famous mountaineers and expeditions, exhibits on the origins of Himalayas and scale models of some of the ranges’ highest peaks.

Paragliding

Depending on the season, go for a thrilling 30-60 minute tandem paraglide flight with an experienced pilot starting from Sarangkot hilltop. The take-off spot is at an elevation of 5,223 feet (1,592 meters), and you will land at Pame, on the northwest side of Phewa Lake. Your thrilling glide offers unmatched bird’s-eye views of both Phewa Lake and the Annapurna range.

River Rafting

Head for the river and feel the thrill of gliding along across the rapids. The beautiful mountain scenery of Nepal will be your backdrop as you make your way down the roaring river.

The Annapurna Circuit

The Annapurna Circuit has become renowned as one of the great walks of the world. While the full-circuit trek, consisting of a 21- to 23-day walk, is for the more adventurous in peak physical condition – not to mention with the necessary time on hand – the Annapurna area offers a multitude of shorter treks as well, including day hikes out of Pokhara, short treks of 3-4 days, and excursions of a week or more.

Alternately, guests should note that horse trekking is also available.

Ultra-Lite Aircraft

Go on a private, 1-hour or 30-minute ultra-light aircraft ride over Pokhara Valley. Board a 2-person aircraft for an expansive, breathtaking view of Pokhara town and its surrounding farms, fields and lakes. In good weather you will also have a clear view of Annapurna range.

Ziplining

Brave an extreme vertical drop of several thousand feet at speeds which exceed 100 miles per hour on Pokhara's zipline.
