Hiking & Biking

Pokhara, besides being one of the major city of the Himalayan kingdom, NEPAL, is the place from where one can start the most exciting treks to the Annapurna region, which is seen hanging out in front of you as you enter the Pokhara. These mountains are just 30 - 40 km away from Pokhara...

Trekking in Pokhara is very new and started only three decades ago. Annapurna was the first mountain in Nepal to be climbed in 1950, before Everest, which afterwards attracted the people from all over the world. After the successful climb of the Annapurna the attention of the world came to Pokhara as its scenic beauty couldn't be overlooked. Pokhara was soon the destination of all tourists who visited Nepal and within three decades it has become the major tourist attraction after Kathmandu.

One of the major attraction that fetch tourists is trekking. Since Pokhara is the best place to set out to the rural villages that are lying in the mountains, many tourist visit Pokhara each year for this purpose.

From Pokhara you can enjoy one day trips, short trips and long trips. Under one day trips, you can travel to the place around the valley and enjoy the natural beauty with very friendly people. Short trip means the trek lasting for about a week and the treks that take more than a week are categorized as long trips.


This small village, perked on top of a hill just 5 kilometers from Pokhara's Lakeside seems to be making something of a comeback, after falling from tourist favor about fifteen years ago. In those days the start of trekking in the Annapurna region usually started at Bindabasini Mandir, north of Pokhara, and took the trekker through Sarangkot and along the ridge to Nayapul. The completion of the Pokhara-Baglung road changed all that! This year the only good news in a dismal tourist season has been the explosion in numbers of people trying their hand at paragliding and the place from where to launch oneself into the air is Sarangkot. Lodges and restaurants are reporting a better business. But you might also want to come here for wonderful mountain views, quite enjoyable walking along the ridge top or simply to escape the heat of Pokhara. At 1592 meters above sea level, Sarangkot is a good five degrees cooler than Pokhara.

Rivers & Waterfalls

Stretching from east to west, the breathtaking views of the world famous Himalayan range of the Annapurna, Dhaulagiri, Machhapuchhre and others appear so close as to make you feel that you can almost touch them....

Seti Rivers

Stretching from east to west, the breathtaking views of the world famous Himalayan range of the Annapurna, Dhaulagiri, Machhapuchhre and others appear so close as to make you feel that you can almost touch them. Sarangkot, Kaskikot, Kalikasthan, Bharat Pokhari and the Bhumdi Hill command beautiful views of the valley and the mountains. These places are also vantage points to view sunrises and sunsets over the majestic Himalayan peaks. The Photo here shows a River below Kau Danda which is popular for fishing purposes. It is a glacial river that flows from the Annapurna Himalayan region.

Kahun Danda is a hill at 1,433m high, and is two hours walk from Mahendra pool. Like other places this place also offers pleasing view of Annapurna range and flat terraces of Pokhara. On the top of the hill is a tower constructed for a clear view of the valley and the Himalayas. There is a fortress and a temple on the top.

A unique river passing through two beautiful and contrasting scenic areas. This river is relatively small in volume, blue and warm, it is recommended as a warm-up river for intermediate rafters, Kayakers and kayak clinic. The Seti Khola rises on the south-east slopes of Machhapuchhere and then flows south.

Devi's Falls (Patale Chhango)

Pokhara is the only city in Nepal which is famous for water falls. As we drive by the river sides below the hills we can see several beautiful and dashing water falls flowing downhill and finally flowing to the rivers. The highway to Baglung consist of several water falls. The city itself has a beautiful waterfall within itself and it is known as Davis Fall (In Nepali: Patale chango):

This is a breath taking view of Davis Fall in Chorrepatan. Chorrepatan is famous for this water fall and there is also a cave just two minutes walk from this fall. The water flowing in this fall comes from Fewa lake and the fall is worth visiting during the rainy seasons as it possesses its maximum velocity.

Pokhara is famous for mountains. But this is not only the thing that has made Pokhara popular. Davis fall is also one of the main tourist attraction center here in Pokhara. Davis fall is open every day of the week for the visitors. The ticket cost is very cheap and it is worth visiting.

This snap also features Davis Fall during the Winter season. During winter there is a mass decrease in the water volume of the Fewa Lake hence the Dam is closed to maintain the water volume within the Fewa Lake. This causes the Davis Fall in maximum decrement in its water volume. The corresponding snap features the rock formation made by the high velocity of the water flowing within it.

This snap features the Davis fall during the rainy season. The excess water in Fewa lake needs to be drained hence the dam is open during summer and this makes Davis fall much more vigrous. Davis fall is worth visiting during the rainy and summer seasons. This high velocity of water has created different type of rock formation as shown in the above snap.
