Travel from Kathmandu

by elphie

Is it safe to take a bus from Kathmandu to Pokhara or is it advisable to travel by plane between the two. We are going this October.

RE: Travel from Kathmandu

by trek_nepal

No need to worry for taking bus from Kathmandu to Pokhara, but definately, travelling through plane is easier than by bus. The Cost by bus is around US$7 by normal tourist bus and US$12 by deluxe tourist bus. Similarly, the flight fare of Kathmandu to Pokhara is US$76 per person.

Have any plan to trek around this area? If yes, we Himalayan Humanity operates lots of trekking packages around this region. If you are interested to join our services please write us without any hesitation.


RE: Info about Travel from Kathmandu

Namaste! From Kathmandu.

This is writing you more than 17 years experience trekking and mountaineering guide. My Name is Lawang Tamang and writing you from Kathmandu.

Of course, Kathmandu to Pokhara by tourist bus or flight is possible. It is safe by tourist bus rather than local bus. Kathmandu to Pokhara is 25 minutes flight and by tourist bus 6 hours driving.

October is best time to visit Nepal. You can see very good scenery at that time.

If you are looking forward to using trekking agency and long years experience guide, please remember me. I can help you to make easy, safe, best and memorable Nepal visit. If you have further more enquiries, please do not hesitate to ask with me. I can supply free information for the tourists of Nepal even though do not accept my services offer.

I am looking forward to hearing from you.

Yes it is safe to take bus to Pokhara from Kathmandu. Every day there are dozen of tourist bus leave for Pokhara early in the morning from Kantipath near by Thamel.

excuse me but.. "tourist bus"...?

can anyone make clear for me what that is?

Isn't there local transport?

RE: Travel from Kathmandu

by matthewmerrington

I would advise against flying, as the bus is cheap and the scenery is beautiful.
Half way you stop at the Hamlet resturant for a break. Safe? I had no problems in Nepal. Even the Moaists were not hostile to tourists, as they know we bring in money.

RE: Travel from Kathmandu

by LuisGuimaraes

RE: RE: Travel from Kathmandu

by matthewmerrington

RE: RE: Travel from Kathmandu

by syd04

Hi. we took the bus. tourist bus with no meals provided. 'tourist bus' means no local on board and we get waved thru at check points.
Cost: 300rs. stopped half way for lunch. condition of bus was not that great (much better than the buses for local) but the scenery is great. took us 9 hrs to get from kathmandu to pokhara due to the many check points. we were there in march. hv fun.

Travel Tips for Pokhara

Fishing in Pokhara valley

by Saagar

You can rent a fishing rod and lure/bait in Pokhara, get a boat and go fishing. A couple of Lakeside places advertise this.
Similarily, at Begnas Tal to the east of Pokhara you can also go fishing, and lesser known, in Rupa Tal. Rupa Tal may wwell be the most beautiful, but least accessible spot for fishing.
The fish you are likely to catch are carp-style fish like roach.
Different fishing, for big game fish like masheer, can be done in the Bardia area in the Karnali river there. I noticed two places on Lakeside east that advertised rentals, just cannot remember any name of the places.
Myself, I brought a collapsible rod from home along with reel, line, hooks and lures.

Varieties of Restaurant.

by goutammitra about Various.

As Pokhara has many hotels, it also has many very good restaurants as well with good decor, clean atmosphere, resonable price. Some also organise Nepali folk music and dance in the evening! We tried two restaurans in our three days stay, I wish I could try more. But they are all very good and very hospitable.

Try to stroll at the Lake side road and just walk in any place you feel like. You will not be disappointed. But Nepal spirit prices are more expensive than India!

Barahi Mandir (Temple)

by ozalp

There are several islands on Phewa Lake and one of them has Barahi Mandir on it. We travelled there in the evening by boat from Fish Tail Lodge. We –non-Hindus- weren’t allowed into the temple. A Brahman was accepting the donations and blessing people by painting the red dot on their foreheads. There were some Hindu tourists, some young fellows, cleaning the lichen over the trees. If there weren’t that much people, this small island could be very peaceful.

Sarangkot to Kaskikot.

by euzkadi

From Sarangkot we walked around three hours to the small village of Kaskikot. A pleasant walk of three hours, enjoying great views of the valley and the Seti river. I really enjoyed the trek, passing through small villages and crop fields, a good way to enjoy the Nepalese countyside.

The Panchase Trek

by Saagar

Ath the head of the Phewa Tal watershed there is a prominent "hill" of about 2500 meters altitude named Panchase. You can easily see it from Lakeside - basically the highest top seen across the lake west. It is a holy "hill" with a small lake and some Hindu shrines on top. Once a year or so a mayor local festival takes place here. From Pokhara you can easily walk the ridges and rim around the western section of Phewa tal. 3 days would be a very comfortable time.
This used to be a regular trekking route offered by many trekking companies, now less poular due to the security sitation. I would think you could still do this trek without and danger, but perhaps including encounters with maoist rebels asking for "revolutionary tax" - protection money.
Sunset ans well as sundown at Panchase is fantastic. Camp up there. The only proper lodges will be at Bhaduare, Naudanda and Sarangkot.

You start from the ridge where the Peace pagoda is located and wind your way among villages, fields and forests up to Panchase, and either down again past Tamagi and Harpan villages down to the lake again. Or you can continue further past Panchase via Badhaure village in a small pass (road access from here), follow the trail a bit down and skirt below the ridge north and up to the naudanda ridge and follow this (partly along the Baglung Road) to Sarangkot and down to Pokhara.
