Trip Overview

Imagine yourself boating in a serene river with the pinnacles of Annapurna massif on your sight surrounding you! This wonderful imagination is possible nowhere but in the lakeside city of Pokhara. Many poets, travellers and nature lovers have described this place on their own. Some described it as a heaven while some described it as a nature’s paradise. Some described it as a pursuance of every traveller’s dream while some described it as an adventure spot for recreational activities. The dramatic views of mountain, pristine air, tranquil lakes, villages resided by warm people and a hub for many recreational activities has made Pokhara a top destination for a day tour. Pokhara city tour is amongst one of the must visit places during our lifetime.

Pokhara city tour lets you experience all the major highlights of Pokhara in just a single day. Though the city has so many things to experience and a single day is not enough, we have compiled and sorted this day trip with some must visit places in Pokhara.

Pokhara city tour starts at around 8 a.m. in the morning after your breakfast. Your guide will pick you up at the hotel and escort you to the sightseeing places in Pokhara. We will visit Fewa Lake, David’s falls, Gupteshwor temple and International Mountaineering museum respectively.

Fewa Lake

A complimentary name that comes in to our mind as we remember the picturesque Pokhara city is the beautiful Fewa lake. Adorned with colorful boats, coffee shops and shops stalled with books and accessories; Fewa lake is an attractive and pleasing place to spend your time in. The beautiful views of Annapurna massif on a clear day and the glimpse of Mt. Fishtail in the undisturbed water of the lake makes the lakeside truly fascinating. You can enjoy boating on the Fewa Lake and visit a temple placed in between the lake known as Barahi temple.

David’s fall

Moving ahead, we visit a popular waterfall that lies approximately 2 kilometres south west of Pokhara on a highway that takes us to Tansen. In past, a foreigner named David had accidently fallen into an underground passage beneath the while he was enjoying swimming in Phardi Khola. Since then the waterfall is named as David’s fall. The waterfall looks stunning and is a centre of attraction to many tourists visiting Pokhara.

Gupteshwor Temple

Our destination next is a mysterious cave that lies near the stunning David’s fall. The cave is mysterious in sense it preserves a phallic form of Lord Shiva called Shivalinga and holds a high value amongst the Hindu pilgrims. As the Shivalinga li in the cave, it is popularly known as Gupteshwor temple and the cave is known as Gupteshwor Gupha. Many Hindu pilgrims around the world visit this place with high importance.

International Mountaineering Museum

International Mountaineering Museum is an alluring museum placed in a gateway to the trekking trail that leads us to the Annapurna region of Nepal. The record of all successful trekkers who attempted the climb of mountains that rise above eight thousand are listed in the museum. It also keeps record of all the major human activities inside the Annapurna region and maintains a record of unique flora and fauna seen inside Annapurna Conservation. Lying on the base of Mt. Macchapuchhre, the museum is uniquely designed. The museum is built in the shape of a mountain. The roof of the museum resembles with the peak of the mountains.

Reviews

Raymond Low, Singapore Nepal Hiking Team provide an excellent guide to me when I hiked Everest Base Camp. My guide, Mr. Prakesh Rai, is very professional and caring... He always gives me very informative replies whenever I have a question or two about the terrain which we are trekking, the history of certain towns or places we passed by or stayed...He is always asking how I am (my old right ankle injury came back)...and will help me carry my load.... We had a good time together especially when we take photographs of the awesome scenery.....He works tirelessly and would be a concern for my diet and always asked me if I had enough of food, hows my leg was, and whether feeling ok especially when we are going towards a higher altitude..... We had a wonderful acclimatization climb and he is always observing me how I am doing. Nepal Hiking Team rocks!.... And I would sincerely recommend my friends to this group..... It’s simply awesome!... Thank you Nepal Hiking team and it's truly a great experience traveling with your professional guide!
Yang, Singapore It was an awesome experience in Nepal, in which a big part of my trip was covered in the mountain, thank to NHT. Ganga, the company manager has been engaging since my enquiry and very efficient and patient with all my queries. They are flexible to customize to my needs due to my planned itinerary besides hiking. They also made arrangement for airport pick up and Ganga met me in person in my lodge to go through the procedures and discussion. 2 days prior to the trek it was raining heavily and many flights were cancelled. We were lucky to tag along a rescue helicopter to Lukla, also thank to Ganga's arrangement. When we arrived at the start point, we were welcome by the friendly guide and porters. My relationship with Gurung, the guide was very good, he took care of me every single bit of the trip, as I was a slow walker in the team. He would check our conditions from time to time to ensure our well beings. Gurung and I joked around in the tea houses and we made many friends and some exchange of cultural knowledge. I was not well when I returned from Base Camp. We discussed and we decided that an evacuation was needed. Gurung visited me in the hospital and sent me back to the hotel after discharge. I had a farewell lunch with him. Ganga and Hari, the 2 managers visited me on the 2 days and they even sent me to the hospital again for report collection. Hari also sent me to the airport on my departure day. I have total satisfaction and heart-felt appreciation for Nepal Hiking Team. There were other companies who tried to compromise prices and quality but not NHT, who insisted on quality and care above all. I'm back in Singapore safely. And they are keeping in contact with me on some follow-ups. I truly want to recommend you this company for their awesome service given the reasonable if not attractive price! This trip was so awesome although I had some hiccups on my decent. I miss Nepal alot, and the friendship shared.
Stephen, Australia I finished the ABC and Bhutan Tours with Nepal Hiking Team and had a very good time. It was a great pleasure dealing with Balaram and Ganga. They are extremely professional, flexible, and accommodating. prior to the trip, I had been constantly emailing Balaram with my questions, whether or not they are directly related to the trek. Balaram was always extremely responsive with detailed answers and he was always patient. When I first got to Kathmandu, both Ganga and Balaram met me at the hotel to greet me. Throughout the trip, they constantly checked up with the guide to make sure that everything went okay. Overall, the trek was well organized and I can say with confidence that the team has done their best to ensure that my needs were met. I am already thinking about coming back to Nepal for my next trek and I will certainly go with Nepal Hiking Team again.
Ian, Canada My wife and I did the Everest Base Camp Trek as organized by Nepal Hiking Team. We read guidebooks and numerous websites leading up to this trip, but nothing quite captured the awesomeness of just being there in person. Each day of our trek was physically and mentally exhausting, but our guide saw to it that we were looked after - be it on the trail, dining, or settling in at the lodge each night. Nepal Hiking Team did a fantastic job for us; I could not be happier with how this trip was organized, and how Balaram and Ganga took care of us.
Evelyn, Ireland Organised this trip from Australia with very limited trekking experience. Ganga and his team were extremely professional and approachable in answering our questions and providing guidance. The travel itinerary was tailor-made to suit our dates. The accommodation in Kathmandu was excellent, accommodation along the trek was the best available and our guide and porter were extremely friendly and knowledgeable. Our flight to Lukla was cancelled and our guide Mr Bim had organised a helicopter within a few moments. Felt very safe and secure with the local knowledge and expertise. The Nepal Hiking Team look after you from start to finish; meeting you at the airport with a garland of flowers and wishing you farewell with a Nepalese scarf. We were a party of three from Ireland and thoroughly enjoyed our trip. Couldn't recommend this company highly enough. I will be advising anyone from Ireland to use this local company for sheer value and professionalism!!
