Trip Overview

While most people travel to Nepal to trek amongst the highest peaks in the world, there are also peaceful, beautiful places to spend a few days resting and relaxing. The city of Pokhara, located on the edge of Phewa Lake, is not only the starting point for many treks in the Annapurna region but also offers stunning views of several peaks in the Annapurna Region and surrounding green hills. The city and adjacent area have been described as paradise, a traveler’s dream, and even heaven.

The fresh air, clear mountain views, tranquil lakes, quiet villages, and an endless list of recreational activities make for the perfect getaway for tourists and locals. Nepal Hiking Team’s Pokhara City Tour is the perfect way to experience the sights and sounds of Pokhara in just one day.

While we highly suggest spending more than one day in this lovely city, the Pokhara City Tour allows guests to see the highlights and learn more about these places of importance. The tour starts around eight in the morning, shortly after breakfast. You will be met by our guide at your hotel, who will take you to Phewa Lake, Davis Falls, Gupteshwor Temple, and the International Mountaineering Museum.

Phewa Lake

One of the most popular sights in Pokhara is the beautiful Phewa Lake. Here you will find colorful boats, coffee shops, restaurants, and street stalls. It is an ideal place to relax, watch people row across the lake, and see the sunset. There is also an exceptional view of several peaks in the Annapurna Region. Many people enjoy taking a boat across the lake, or visiting the temple in the middle of the lake, Barahi Temple.

Patale Chango, also known as Davis Falls

Next, we will visit a famous waterfall only two kilometers southwest of Pokhara. There is a story about a tourist who once fell into the passage while swimming upstream, and this is how the falls got its name. There are many names based on many different stories that have been told for generations. The waterfall is exceptionally beautiful in the fall when water levels are highest after the monsoon season.

Gupteshwor Temple

There are many caves throughout Nepal, but one, in particular, lies near the waterfall. The cave is considered to be rather mysterious as it preserves a phallic form of Lord Shiva called Shivalinga. It is incredibly important for Hindu followers around the world. Commonly called Gupteshwor Temple, many Hindus make the pilgrimage here to worship Lord Shiva.

International Mountaineering Museum

The International Mountaineering Museum is a perfect place to visit for those who are looking to learn more about the incredible mountains in Nepal in addition to those who have summited such peaks. Here, you will find the names of all climbers who have reached the top of mountains above eight thousand meters. There is also unique information about the rare flora and fauna found inside the Annapurna Conservation area. The museum is designed in the shape of mountain peaks, directly reflecting the incredible views behind it.

This is the final stop on the Pokhara City Tour; however, there is still much to see, and we can help plan your arrangements to visit other locations. This includes watching the sunrise at Sarangkot, paragliding, and many more.

We had an unbelievable adventure completing the Mardi Himal Trek in January 2023. Our guide Rajendra (Raj), and porter Rajesh  were professional, fun, energetic, and knowledgeable about not only the trek we were on but about many others in the area.

I'm so happy I went with Nepal Hiking Team. From the moment I arrived at the hotel, I knew I made the right choice. The hotel was in a great area. Bars, restaurants, clubs, shops were all within a 10 minute or less walk from the hotel.

I completed the 14 day Annapurna Circuit early December 2022, thank you so much to Surya and Rabin, who both went out of their way to make this trip, that I'd been planning so long,and  memorable. They were always checking in with me during the hike

Namaste! I highly recommend Nepal Hiking Team for your trekking adventure in the beautiful Himalayan Mountains of Nepal. This was my first trip to Nepal and additionally my first ever muli-day trek. Annapurna Base Camp Trek became a dream of mine about

We completed the 15-day Manaslu Circuit trek with Nepal Hiking Team in late November 2022.

The scenery of the Manaslu region is stunning and far more beautiful than we had imagined. The weather was excellent!
