Tours that include Pokhara
A popular city in Nepal and nestled on the Phewa Lake and amongst the Himalayan mountains, there are plenty of activities to keep you occupied in Pokhara. The biggest and most obvious attraction is the lake, which seems to take up a dominant amount of the city’s space. You can hire a row boat, and a rower if you’re feeling less energetic, and spend a lazy afternoon with a spectacular view in a calming environment.
Of course, there is walking to be done as well, and you can choose to explore the local streets or hike up any of the nearby mountains for spectacular views. Of course the unbeatable view comes from the many paragliding companies offering their services to anyone game enough to strap themself to the harness. It’s a fantastic experience, and one you can rave about back home. Pokhara is the perfect place to pick up keepsakes for back home, as the offerings are more authentic and far cheaper than in Kathmandu. There is also an incredible array of local food, so don’t be afraid to explore and sample as much as you can.
