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.

After visiting the international mountaineering museum, we conclude our Pokhara City Tours. You will be dropped back to our hotel. Hope you had a good time with us.

Reviews

Bogdan Ilie, USA My wife and I were lucky to have chosen Nepal Hiking Team to plan our trip. We opted for a private guide and had a porter as well. We waited at the airport, and we were dropped off there as well when we left Nepal. Our guide, Ram, made sure that our trip was organized flawlessly and that we were doing well and happy at all times. He chose the best available teahouses, and we were allowed to chose the food from the menu in all of them (there seem to be agencies that say you can either choose dal bhat or pay out of pocket). We were even served, during dinner, sliced apples carried by the porter. Ram was very knowledgeable, and he shared information related to mountain peaks, vegetation, and animals. As we saw, his English skills are excellent. Above all, he is friendly and has a positive attitude, so we enjoyed talking and interacting with him. The porter, Bhola, was also very friendly. He looked like he was 50 kg but carried 55-65 kg easily. Overall, it was a fantastic once-in-a-lifetime experience to which Ram, Bhola, and Nepal Hiking Team contributed substantially. One of the owners, Ganga, even offered free rides to do the PCR tests or other purposes. We couldn't have hoped for better treatment from this agency.

Lucie H, UK In May this year - some friends and I joined the NHT For 16 days. Every fine detail was considered, with our guides and porters going above & beyond to ensure we were comfortable and happy. Their knowledge and experience created a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for us all. I have no hesitation in recommending Nepal Hiking Team to anyone! They made this experience perfect, thank you, guys.  
Mike, USA I went with my girlfriend to the Everest Base Camp with a guide and porter from Nepal Hiking Team. Right from the pick-up from the airport, we felt like valued clients, and we were made to feel very welcome and relaxed in an otherwise hectic city. From the moment the trek started, our guide Bheg ensured we were comfortable and constantly checked on our physical state throughout each day and provided advice and assistance where we needed it. Overall, the experience was one I'll never forget, primarily because I proposed at the top and because the Nepal Hiking team made the experience as stress-free and as organized as possible, all with a smile on their face at all times. I highly recommend NHT.
Megan Y., China Ganga, Balaram, and the team were fantastic; even when we had a 24-hour flight delay, they re-scheduled everything without fuss or fee. We had an excellent driver for just us (and guide where we had them). We even changed things along the way, and whether the driver, guide, or agent, they were more than willing to help and be flexible. :) The trip took in some hiking, some sightseeing, some relaxing, the jungle, and for each occasion and location, we were provided a specialist guide for the event/location. The hotels they chose for us were precisely our requirements based on the activity we were experiencing on any given day. Balaram even met us many times in person to round off the experience and ensure all was well and take honest feedback in person - the personal touch makes you feel even more appreciated and welcome as a customer. We would recommend anyone contact the team if they are planning a trip to Nepal. Thank you, guys, for a memorable vacation.
Jonathan, USA The team NHT provided the best possible service. They were attentive in every aspect in the months leading up to the trek through emails and were responsive and thorough in addressing my questions and concerns. During our tour, Bheg (our guide) and our porter were there to take care of our (myself and one other trekker) needs and always smile and graciously. I have used other more expensive and well-known trekking teams in the Himalayas in the past and would rank NHT on an equal or higher plain. Bheg has many years of experience, as did our porter, and was very competent in their roles and Bheg in his knowledge of the area and the trek. Though our porter did not speak very much, Bheg was kind enough to translate when asked, and our porter was equally attentive in assisting Bheg and us to ensure a successful trek. Very competitive price and an excellent team and experience. I highly recommend them.
