    Let's take a stroll!

    by mamtap Written Mar 15, 2014

    Favorite thing: Sometimes I love to stroll aimlessly. It's like giving time to myself. Strolling is kind of reliever. Who doesn't know the benefits of strolling. And who knows maybe while strolling you meet someone who clicks or find something you never thought of. :)

    Fondest memory: Pokhara is one of my FAV place to stroll. Usually I choose evening or Morning time to stroll but in Pokhara or PKR as we lovingly call it, anytime is perfect.

    Favorite thing: If you too love Beer like me :), you should also try Beer in Pokhara. The weather in Pokhara is always challenging you to have Beer. Tuborg and Carlsberg are famous Brands and Alcohol can be found everywhere easily. Price can be ranged from NC 120 to 450.

    Fondest memory: Only one advice from my side 'Drink Responsibly ;)'

    Favorite thing: For me the Tal Barahi Temple is most Frequently visited Temple in Nepal. This place is a popular shrine within the Hindu Travelers. The rent for the from the Shore (Ghat) for Boat is NC 30/- per person for Nepalese Visitors and NC 340/- for Indian Visitors. Or you can hire a Boat and row it yourself and have a visit to the temple.

    Barahi Temple is Situated on a Tiny island on the Fewa Lake. One cannot miss to see it from the Shores of the Lake Fewa.

    Golden Eagle!

    Golden Eagle

    Favorite thing: I was thrilled to spot this huge bird of prey as we were walking up to the World Peace Pagoda. Recognisable due to the straight-edged wings with deep spreading 'fingers' and paler stripes on the underside, and above all the golden brown head feathers in contrast with the darker brown body, this glorious creature is known as 'baaj' in Nepali.

    by Saagar Updated Mar 21, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: There are lots of internet cafes in Pokhara, and along the Lake Side there is quite a concentration. Try Pokhara Cyber Café which is good, honest and the computers are in good and updated shape. Cheap. They do a range of services for theri customers; travel arrangements etc, plus the normal auxillary computer services, printing, fax etc. It is located on the right hand side near Standard Chartered Bank up north on Lakeside.

    How Pokhara changed face....

    by josephescu Written Mar 9, 2007

    Favorite thing: Before the construction of the Prithvi “highway”, getting to Pokhara from Kathmandu involved a 10 day pony trek, with numerous deadly river crossings along the way. When a Swiss explorer (Tom Hagen) visited in 1952, he found ambling buffalo carts and streets lined with brick Newari houses. Hints of these can still be seen in old Pokhara, just north of the Mahendra Pul bazaar.

    Aside from the Swiss explorer, the first westerners to reach Pokhara were hippies in the 1970s. with its lakeshore setting, laid-back pace and plentiful supply of marijuana, Pokhara made a perfect end-point for the south-Asian overland trail. From these barefoot beginnings, it developed rapidly – by the 1980s, it had transformed into a modern mountain resort, to the extend that today Pokhara is basically “Thamel by water”.

    A good book on Pokhara Valley

    by Saagar Written Jan 20, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Pokhara book cover (see pen for size)

    Favorite thing: The book "Pokhara: A Valley in the Himalayas" Nabin Publications, author Prakash A. Raj, 1993, is a very good introduction to activities, geography and society in the Pokhara Valley. About 70 pages it has the contents of a guidebook but as written by a local it goes beyond the minimalist info of a busy travel author. A good book that I regularly consult while in Nepal. At only 150 Rs this is good value for your money.

    A relaxed and peaceful atmosphere

    From the trek

    Fondest memory: Pokhara stands at 884 metres above sea level, 700 metres lower than Kathmandu.
    From here, the Himalaya is indeed an impressive and mighty mountain range, and even if along the lakeside is where tourists mainly stay, you can still breathe a particular atmosphere I guess the same it was in '70s...

    Most besutiful view while showering!!

    by herzog63 Written Feb 25, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Poon Hill Shower

    Favorite thing: As you pour a can of hot water over your head you can enjoy the views! I tried to limit my Hot showers as the hot water is made my burning wood and the wood comes from cutting down trees which causes erosion. So it's just something to think about while you are enjoying the views.

    Roosting Birds

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: These white birds were everywhere in Pokhara in the early morning, I spotted these on the way to the bus station, still roosting! I think they are cattle egrets, with their long necks retracted.
