How to get Pokhara

Pokhara is located on the elevation of 730 meters from sea level. It’s easily reachable from anywhere from Nepal. Kathmandu is only one international airport to enter Nepal. Once you arrive Kathmandu, there mainly two ways to get Pokhara by flight or drive. The drive will for 6 to 7 hours and flight takes about 30 minutes.

Daily tourist buses leaves early morning at 7 AM to pokhara from Kathmandu and arrives by 14:00 o’clock. Please consider the road conditions are not good in Nepal. Several schedules by several airlines are available to take.

One day hiking option

Peace Stup located very close distance from Pokhara. However the road assessable ill half way people still prefer walk up to top. It’s known as Shanti Stupa in Nepal. It was built by Buddhist monk to signify world peace. There are two pagodas in Nepal one is in Pokhara and another is in Lumbini. Pokhara’s Stupa is located on the elevation of 1100 meters so if someone prefers to hike He/she most hike about 400 meters.  Located on south side of Pokhara city it offers magnificent vistas of North side’s Annapurna and Dhaulagiri Himalayan range along with Pokhra city view and Lake. Just imagine how beautiful it will be.

2 days Sarangkot Naudanda Hiking

Instead of visiting only in Pokhara, the overnight trip staying a night in Sarangkot is best option. The Hill located on the elevation of 1600 meters Sarangkot hill offers pleasant view of whole Annapurna and Dhaulagiri from close distance. Adventure activities like paragliding, zip lining starts from this hill and ends at Pokhara. It is always best idea to cover Sarangkot hill visit in your itinerary for sunrise view. However you easily can visit by drive I personally advice you to walk into fresh air.

3 days hiking around Pokhara around Dhampus village, Australian camp and Sarangkot will be worth visit. Further up if you prefer to choose Poon Hill hike for days the POkhara is gate way. Simple hike, exploring rural villages and reach Poon Hill view point for sunrise would be life time adventure trip.
