Pokhara is a beautiful town on the shores of Phewa Lake, with usually mild and sunny weather. We highly recommend that our guests spend a few days here, ideally following the trek, to rest and recharge.
Here are some of our favourite things to do:
Coffee shops and restaurants
Pokhara offers excellent food, in a relaxed and beautiful setting. All along the lake, there are coffee shops and restaurants. We recommend checking out Tripadvisor, or just taking a walk and finding a place you like. Jiva Cafe & Spa is one of our favourite places for enjoying delicious and healthy breakfast or lunch by the lake, or just some tea or coffee. Their massages are fantastic! A great place to come the day after you finish your trek. We also enjoy OR2K for their excellent food and beautiful views over the lake.
Pokhara is an adventure destination, offering paragliding, rafting, zip lining, and more. You can make arrangements with one of the adventure shops along Lakeside.
World Peace Pagoda — Shanti Stupa
Hiking or driving up to the Shanti Stupa is worth it when you are in Pokhara. The view of the mountains and lakes is stunning, and the atmosphere at the temple is very serene.
Boating on Phewa Lake
Rent a boat with boatman and take a tour on the lake. Seeing Pokhara and the surrounding hills and mountains from here is a treat.
Gupteshwor Mahadev Cave and Devi’s Falls
This cave and waterfall are worth seeing. They offer a glimpse into Nepalese culture, and showcase this beautiful natural waterfall.
And of course, if you have not booked with us yet, we highly recommend that you embark on one of our yoga treks for a unique and transformative experience — most of our routes start and end in Pokhara. 🙂 See our testimonials here.
