18 Things to Do in Pokhara, Nepal

18 Things to Do in Pokhara, Nepal, Pokhara, Nepal (B)

Pokhara is one of those places with an endless list of things to do. Pretty much walk in any direction, and you’re surrounded by beauty. It’s a haven for trekking and adventure sports. For those who don’t fancy themselves “thrill seekers” there’s tons of places to sit back and relax as well. The best part, it’s not expensive. Below is a list of all the things I was able to do during my time in Pokhara.

My friends and I attempted to hike up Sarangkot almost every day for a week. Every morning at 4:00am we’d wake up to find a sky full of clouds and zero visibility. We’d all roll back into bed and try again the next day. Eventually the clouds cleared up, and we made the two hour hike to see the sunrise. It was well worth the wait and the short but steep trek. If you aren’t into trekking, you can also take a taxi up most of the way.

See Lake Phewa and the Annapurna range from above. You’ll take off from Sarangkot and land in North Lakeside. Depending on the conditions, your ride could last from 15 minutes to a half hour. You get to soar through the sky like a bird while your guide takes you in circles up above. If you’re feeling even more adventurous, you can ask them to do tricks on the way down. For those who don’t want to run off a mountain, you can watch from the take off location which is really interesting. Read more about my paragliding experience here. ......
