Trip introduction

Around Pokhara Day Hiking is a wonderful way of exploring the naturally blessed paradise city of Pokhara. The hike allows us to witness spectacular sunrise views from the Sarangkot viewpoint. Experience a short yet scenic trek towards Naudanda. Along with a visit to the naturally and culturally rich village of Dhampus. Which is famous for spectacular landscape views and cultural exploration of local Gurung communities.

Similarly, Around Pokhara Day hiking continues as we go for a short hike to a world peace pagoda. That blesses us with awesome views of Phewa Lake, valley, settlements, and even Annapurna and Manaslu range. Further, we go sightseeing around major highlights of Pokhara valley like the Mountaineering Museum, Devi’s falls, Tibetan refugee camp, Gupteshwor cave, etc. We relax for the final day enjoying the beauty of nature at Pokhara. And end our hiking trip after driving back to Kathmandu. If you are an adventure lover then there are plenty of other activities like Paragliding, Zip flyer, bungee jumping, and others that truly define the meaning of adventure and thrill.

What our customers say about us

Very Helpful!

We used Ramesh a couple times during our stay to book flights and buses within Nepal – he was very helpful and friendly! Efficient and professional, he was always happy to help and very easy to contact in case anything went wrong (it didn’t). He was attentive and proactive too – checking with us at every stage to see if arrangements had gone to plan. I’d recommend his services to anyone looking for an adventure in Nepal! Thanks!

Amazing trekking
Nepal Mountain Trekkers did a great job on the organization of this wonderful journey! I had a great time; it was such a pleasure to meet all the friendly and humorous people of Nepal. Our experienced and committed guide Tika dhakal , never lost his kindness or ran out of patience. Also I want to mention the absolutely polite and friendly and so helpful porter. From the time I arrived, until the time I left, I was in very good hands and all the time feeling very welcome!!
It was definitely one of the best trips I´ve ever made and the team of Nepal Mountain Trekkers pvt.ltd played an important part, I will return soon and doing another trekking with same team .
