Overview

A city aligned with the sapphire blue Phewa lake, and residing under the majestic Annapurna Mountain Range, Pokhara is a plate of just the right ingredients for your next travel plan. Named after its jewel ‘pokhari’, it is home to all the glory of a perfect weekend trip one can imagine. Enthralling natural sceneries, peaceful city life, religious hub, and adventurous activities are just the beginning of the long list of wonders this city has to offer. 

 

It is believed that the Pokhara Valley originated around 700 years ago in the 1300s. A catastrophic avalanche-triggered flood that came as an outcome of massive earthquakes in the past centuries, came from the Sabche Cirque of the Annapurna range. Mother nature played her strings and the captivating valley was born. During the Shah Dynasty in the 1700s, the then king of Kaski kingdom, Kulmandan Singh is said to have built the sacred Taal Barahi Temple nearby the then-young city.

 

During the 17th century, the Pokhara Valley was an important spot for training after the Tibet to India trading route was passed through it. It was one of the crown jewels in terms of wealth for the Kaski Kingdom. Most of the ancestors of the now-residing people of the city came during the 1800s. This enhanced the population and the infrastructural growth in the city. 

 

However, the legend of the origin of the city tells another story. It is believed that thousands of years ago, here used to lay the peaceful city of Phewa. One day, Goddess Barahi took the form of an old woman and knocked on every house in the city asking for some food. While everyone shut her out and didn’t agree to help her, One man and his wife were kind enough to invite her inside and offer their own food to her.

The goddess was touched by their kindness and infuriated by the rest of the city. She decided to bring in a flood and destroy all their houses except for the couple who helped her. She asked them to go to a Hillock, where the now Tal Barahi temple resides, while the flood was coming. Everyone except for the couple died in the flood, and the Phewa Tal was formed. In honor of the Goddess, that couple built the temple dedicated to her. 

 

It takes around 25 minutes to reach Pokhara from Kathmandu on the plane. 9 daily flights are available. The valley is located at an elevation of 822m above sea level, about 400m lower than the Kathmandu valley. The temperature is warmer, and the best time to visit is around autumn or winter when it is not too hot, and not too cold either. It is also the time when the mountains are at their best view from the valley. 

 

There is a world of things you can spend your weekend doing here. Obviously, it makes no sense to miss visiting the beautiful Phewa Tal after your arrival. Its peaceful serenity reflecting the Annapurna mountain range in its waters perfectly balances out the bustling city. A breath of the tranquil view this valley gets because of the lake, your heart will be pumped throughout your stay here. You can simply go on a boat ride to take in the lake at its best. The boat ride will also take you to the Tal Barahi temple sitting in the middle of the lake as an island. It is a two-tiered temple that resonated with the historic Nepali pagoda-style architecture. There is also a trek that circuits the late and also stops by the World Peace Pagoda. 

 

Within and just around the city lies more of nature that will baffle your trip. The Davis fall is located about 2 kilometers away from the Pokhara Airport. It is the point where the Pardi Khola stream goes underground and disappears. During the monsoon, the waters are at their wildest and the sound of the waterfall in between the stoney cliffs is what people so admirably visit for. 

 

Right across the road of Davis fall, lies the Gupteshwor Mahadev Cave was discovered in 1950. It is the longest known cave in Nepal with a distance of 2950 meters. It is home to a magnificent stalagmite that is worshiped as Lord Shiva. People believe that once upon a time the lord himself would come inside this cave to meditate. Through the decades, it has been a significant Hindu pilgrimage site where devotees come to worship, and at the present, it is a popular tourist attraction. 

 

After spending half your day visiting these popular sites, you can dedicate the rest of it to visiting the World Peace Pagoda. About 7 kilometers from the core city, it is located at the top of the Anada hill of Pumdi village at an elevation of 2100m. Throughout your stay at Pokhara, the sight of this pagoda will not leave the corner of your eye as it sits overlooking the valley. A one-of-a-kind view of the city, it is only situated about a one-hour hike or a 20-minute drive away. Boating across the lake and then taking another hiking route is again a fun way to the World Peace Stupa.

 

The second day at Pokhara can be dedicated to experiencing some of the countless adventurous activities the city has in store. There is boating, kayaking, rafting, horse riding, mountain biking, paragliding, bungee jumping, parasailing, and many more. You can even go on a hike to the alluring villages around the valley like Sarangkot, Dhampus, Begnas Tal, Rupa Tal, and many more.

Trip Notes

Passports, visas, and entry requirements

 PASSPORT

A valid passport is required for you to travel internationally. Similarly, your passport must have a minimum of 6 months validity remaining to travel in most countries. We recommend you take copies of the main passport pages and other important documents with you as well. And also please ensure that the name on your passport and airline ticket matches exactly.

 VISAS

Entry necessities can alternate at any time. Visas can take several weeks to process, so make sure you research the requirements as soon as you have booked your trip to allow for obtaining any necessary documents as well as the application and processing time.

 NEPAL :

All foreign nationals (except Indian passport holders) require a visa to enter Nepal. In the arrivals hall, you’ll find electronic kiosks that read your passport, take your photo, and print out a completed form. Take your completed form to the payment counter where you'll pay for your visa, and then head to the immigration line for "Visa on Arrival". You may also need to provide two passport photos and the following fees in US dollars (subject to change, cash only). Other currencies are also accepted although rates may differ. The following costs were correct at the time of writing:

- Multi-entry visa valid for 15 days - US$30

- Multi-entry visa valid for 30 days - US$50

- Multi-entry visa valid for 90 days - US$125

Your visa application form may require you to state the dates on which you enter and exit that country.

 

Medical and health information

GENERAL HEALTH

Consider your physical and mental health before you travel, especially if you have an existing medical condition. Consider whether you may be in a vulnerable category for COVID-19. See your doctor or travel clinic to have a basic health check-up, ask if your travel plans may affect your health, and plan any vaccinations you need. Do this at least 8 weeks before you leave.

Vaccination Policy

All travelers on Nepal trips (outside Australia, New Zealand, and the Cook Islands) are required to produce proof of full vaccination against COVID-19. From 1 December 2021, all travelers on trips, including in Australia, New Zealand, and the Cook Islands, are required to produce proof of full vaccination against COVID-19.

AIR POLLUTION:

Air quality in Nepal can be poor, especially in winter. Some towns, including Kathmandu, experience very high levels of seasonal smog and heavy particulate pollution. Seek medical advice if you're concerned about the effects of air pollution.

MOSQUITO-BORNE ILLNESSES:

Malaria and Dengue fever are a risk in various parts of Nepal. Mostly, during the monsoon season. Protect yourself against insect bites by wearing clothing that covers as much skin as possible, including repellent while sleeping under a net.

MEDICAL FACILITIES AND TREATMENT:

Healthcare services are unevenly distributed across the country and access to care in some areas may be limited. Healthcare in Kathmandu generally meets international standards but healthcare throughout the rest of the country may be inadequate. Ensure that you have accessible funds to cover upfront fees and adequate travel health insurance, including evacuation. Hospitals in Nepal typically require upfront payment in cash or credit card, regardless if you have travel health insurance.

 

Food and dietary requirements

FOOD IN NEPAL:

In Kathmandu and Pokhara there are plenty of restaurants and cafes for all tastes and budgets. Nepal caters very well to vegetarians and vegans with almost all restaurants having a veg section on the menu.

Accommodation

 

Transport

LUGGAGE LIMITS:

Domestic flights in Nepal have strict weight limits - 10kg of check-in luggage and 5kg of carry-on hand luggage per person is included with your flight ticket. Excess baggage (up to 5kg per person only) will be charged at your own expense.

ROAD TRAVEL:

Roadwork and infrastructure projects can cause significant delays on major roads within cities and highways between destinations. Road travel can also be disrupted due to demonstrations and strikes without warning. Major roadworks are currently ongoing in and around Kathmandu and the roads to Chitwan National Park. Delays, heavy traffic, poor road conditions, and dust are a reality of road travel in Nepal.

MONSOON:

The monsoon season is from June to September and weather conditions can disrupt travel during this time due to flooding and landslides. Disruption of air travel and airport closures are also possible. Be prepared that the itinerary may need to change at short notice.

INTERNAL FLIGHTS:

There have been a number of air accidents in Nepal. We only use airlines that have passed strict safety audits for including internal flights in Nepal, including Buddha Air, Yeti Air & Tara Air.

Money matters

The official currency of Nepal is the Nepali rupee (NPR). Its symbol is often displayed as Rs. ATMs can only be found in Kathmandu, Pokhara, and Bhaktapur. Make sure you carry sufficient cash to cover your needs when traveling outside of these cities. Money exchange facilities are available in Kathmandu, Namche, Pokhara, Chitwan (only outside the park), and Bhaktapur. Credit cards are not widely accepted.

Packing

You are responsible only for the personal clothing and gear listed below. We'll take care of everything else.  A gear check will be completed before you depart for the trail. This list does not include additional clothing/items you may want for travel or for your time off the trail. Below is a list of equipment and documentation that we suggest you take with you. Please use this checklist as a guide when packing for your holiday.

During the winter months, December to February, it will be chilly and possibly foggy in the early mornings, with temperatures dropping down to a minimum of around 0ºC on some days. A warm, windproof jacket will be required.

Climate and seasonal information

Nepal's climate varies greatly depending on the season:

JUN - SEP: the monsoon rains (mostly at night) bring landslides in regional areas. Cloud cover often obscures mountain views with rain, mud, and leeches deterring most trekkers at this time of year. Treks running in September can be hot and very humid at lower altitudes.

MAR-APR: Spring brings warm weather and spectacular rhododendron blooms. A popular time to visit and one of the peak times to trek.

OCT - NOV: Clear skies and warm days make autumn the peak season.

DEC - FEB: Winter brings cold temperatures and snow to the mountains. Good trekking, but remember to rug up.

Phone and internet access

Hotels in Kathmandu generally have excellent WiFi connections. Most hotels offer free WiFi in public areas, with some also offering in-room WIFI, sometimes for an additional fee.

Group Leader

The goal of the group leader is to make your travels easier and to help you have the best trip possible. Have a broad general knowledge of the places visited on the trip, including historical, cultural, religious, and social aspects.

Safety

We recommend that you check your government's advice for their latest travel information before departure and ensure that your travel insurance covers you for all destinations and activities on your trip. We strongly recommend the use of a neck wallet or money belt while traveling, for the safe-keeping of your passport, flight tickets, cash, and other valuable items. Your leader will accompany you on all included activities, however, during your trip you'll have some free time to pursue your own interests or relax and take it easy.

Strikes :

Strikes happen on a very frequent basis in Nepal. Most, but not all, of the recent strikes are political in nature and are generally called for the night before with little or no warning. If you arrive as a tourist during a busy political time of year there's a strong chance you might not be able to travel the country as much as you would normally.

 

INSURANCE:

 Travel protection is highly recommended to protect your travel investment from unforeseen circumstances that may occur during or before your trip. Make sure your insurance covers you for your intended activities, including travel and trekking above 3000m if this is included on your itinerary, mountain rescue services, and helicopter evacuation costs.

FESTIVALS:

The weather is not the only factor when thinking about when to go to Nepal. This Himalayan nation has a rich history, which can be discovered through its festivals. Nepal’s festival calendar fills every month of the year with colorful celebrations that offer interesting insights into the local culture. Stumbling onto a local festival may prove to be the highlight of your travels in Nepal – and given the sheer number of them, you’d be unlucky not to. Festivals may be Hindu, Buddhist, animist, or a mix of all three. Traveling in Nepal during Holi Festival (28-29 March 2021, 27-28 March 2022), can at times be dangerous due to revelers consuming intoxicating substances. The day is often associated with physical violence and danger. Traveling during the Hindu festival Diwali (4 November 2021, 24 November 2022) can also be dangerous. During this time there are many displays of fireworks in the streets. It can be very noisy for several days and there is also a lot of pollution caused by the fireworks.

Culture shock

Not all cultures share the same beliefs and values. These differences can cause severe culture shock. Some culture shocks that travelers might find while traveling in Nepal are:

 Don’t assume people speak your language. In cultures where you don’t speak the language, simple tasks suddenly become more complicated- like riding a bus or ordering food at a restaurant.

Some Asian cultures such as Indian, Korean, and Chinese openly spit on the sidewalk same with Nepal.

In some Asian countries such as Thailand, India, Nepal, and some Muslim countries such as Morocco, using water and your hands, not toilet paper, is considered much cleaner than using toilet paper.

There is poverty all over the world but it never seems real until you experience it firsthand. There is a number of homeless beggars and slums in Nepal. There are piles of the garbage next to rivers, people sleeping in gutters, and meat being butchered on a tarp next to the street.

 After your arrival, you will run into people who will offer you a taxi ride or a cheap hotel. When you hop into a car and leave through the gate of the airport you will see the snake driving vehicles. There are dividers but the car might go to the wrong side to overtake, which is very normal here, and therefore no reason to worry.

When in Nepal, don’t expect things to go on time. You will face delays almost in all activities. There is even a phrase “Nepali Time” which is used sarcastically to point out delays in activities.

You might see guys holding hands when they are walking down the street. Guys holding hands in Nepal is a sign of a good friendship and brotherhood.

At monuments, museums, Durbar Squares, etc if someone starts following you and explaining things, they are hiring themselves as your guide and expecting to be paid at the end. Tell them clearly their services are not required pronto, or things are going to get awkward.
