“On Earth there is no heaven but there are pieces of it”, a beautiful quote by Jules Renard and probably the quote came into authors mind during the visit to a place like Pokhara. Pokhara is truly a piece of heaven on Earth.
A town lying 200km west from Kathmandu, Pokhara is one of the major tourism hubs in Nepal. A destination fully gifted with natural wonders was not at all affected by the earthquake 2015. Comparatively smaller than Kathmandu, Pokhara caters wide variety of activities for travelers.
With huge options of flying adventures like Skydiving, Paragliding, Ultralight Flights, Bungee Jumping, Pokhara welcomes large number of tourists every year. Rafting is another thrilling activity, Pokhara offers. Pokhara is one of the few destinations in the world catering the wide range of adventure activities.
Pokhara is popular for its beautiful landscapes in and around. A valley surrounded by hills and famous landmarks like Begnas Lake and Phewa Lake where the elevation suddenly changes taking you to a hilltop like Sarangkot; ideal spot to observe the thirst healing sunrise falling on giant Himalayan Ranges. Mountain views including Annapurna, Dhaulagiri and Fishtail from any place around the city as the backdrop of Phewa Lake are the pleasurable sights for anyone’s eyes.
Well facilitated as Kathmandu but comparatively more serene and peaceful Pokhara is one of the best places for your holidays in Nepal. Less busy roads and well managed urban life allows travelers to be lost in the natural beauty of Pokhara.
Pokhara is one of the cheapest places to chill out compared to other tourist hubs across the world. The accessibility to various things in a reasonable price is also the reason Pokhara is in the bucket list of many budget travelers.
Whatever the above reasons are, most of the tourists choose to go Pokhara because it is gateway to the globally known trekking region Annapurna. The trekking to Annapurna begins from various points around Pokhara, which lets travelers to plan their stay at Pokhara.

13 Day Manaslu Circuit Trek Nov 2018 We have just returned to Kathmandu after a wonderful trek around the Manaslu circuit, starting in Soti Khola and finishing in Jaget. The trek and transport out and back to Kathmandu were very well organized. Our guide, Bharet Rana was excellent, arranging our tea-house accomodation and meals each day, without hitch. He was always good humoured and provided an interesting commentary on sights along the way.
Our Everest Base Camp trek was a wonderful and memorable one. Everything was very well organised. Thank you Explore Himalaya and the staffs for such an excellent service. We were taken care of from the moment we landed in Ktm till the day we left. The Guides and the Porters team of Explore Himalaya are very friendly and helpful. They took care of every little things during our trek. Some walked faster, some slowly and few could not but No one was left behind. They walk with your pace and motivates you until you get up. Anuj Pandey, MD of Explore Himalaya was available 24 hours a day when anybody was in need, he even flew to Namche to check if everything was going well and if everybody was doing good. The Guides Bibek Pandey, Bhuwan Tamang and Ram Rajbhandari along with their 5 Porters were the main pillars who made our mission accomplished. I'd highly recommend anybody who wants to travel to Nepal to contact Explore Himalaya and get themselves spoilt and entertained with their excellent service.
