Pokhara Tour Overview

"Join this short 4-days Pokhara tour and explore the beautiful city of lakes, go on a quick hike that offers phenomenal mountain views, and visit historical monuments. Rejuvenate your soul and enjoy a relaxing venture."

We have designed this short 4 days Pokhara tour to let you explore the wonders of this beautiful Lake City. Pokhara is the second-largest city in Nepal and is most loved by travelers because of its chill vibe. The city has many stunning lakes and caves around it.

This short retreat will take you away from the bustle of Kathmandu to a relaxing environment. You get to unwind amidst the forest and enjoy stunning mountain views. Learn about this city during the tour and meet friendly locals. The Pokhara tour is guided by one of our best guides.

The first part of the 4-day Pokhara tour takes you to the Sarangkot viewpoint (1,600 m). From here, we begin hiking to Naudanda (1,443 m). The trail is well made and goes through lush forests. Once you reach Naudanda, the jaw-dropping views of Lamjung Himal (6,983 m), Mt. Annapurna (8,091 m), and Mt. Fishtail (6,993 m) will blow your mind away.

This short excursion makes our Pokhara tour even more special because of the mountain panorama. You still get to quench your thirst for witnessing the Himalayan mountains without going on a long arduous trek. The second part of the Pokhara tour involves visiting the tourist sites around the city.

Trust us, it's as exciting as hiking. You'll explore museums, caves, temples, and waterfalls during the tour in Pokhara. Some of the places you go on tour are Davis Falls, Peace Stupa, etc.

Not only that, Pokhara is the gateway to numerous adventurous outdoor activities like paragliding, mountain biking, ultra-light flights, and treks in the famous Annapurna region. If you fancy doing any of these activities, let us know in advance. We'll arrange it for you. As these activities are not covered in our Pokhara tour cost, you have to bear the additional expenses.

If you want to go off-grid without going off-grid, then Pokhara is the place for you. The city has a very intriguing modern and natural aspect that has won the hearts of thousands of travelers. You can contact us anytime to book the 4-day Pokhara tour. Our team will assist you and provide you with all the other information.

Major Attractions of the Pokhara Tour

Comfortable and panoramic ride to Pokhara from Kathmandu

The 6 to 7 hours ride between Kathmandu and Pokhara is famous for the remarkable sceneries the route offers. As the ride progresses, lush green hills, waterfalls, terrace fields, rushing rivers, and snowy mountains begin to unfold one after another. We use a luxurious tourist bus, which makes the ride even more fantastic.

Witness stunning mountain views from Sarangkot

We reach Sarangkot at 1,600 meters, which is situated on the western side of Pokhara. This place offers tempting views of the Himalayan mountains like Dhaulagiri (8,167 m), Fishtail (6,993 m), Annapurna (8,091 m), Hiunchuli (6,441 m), and Manaslu (8,163 m) on a clear day. Likewise, you also get to witness aerial views of Pokhara city.

Short hike to Naudanda

We have included this short hike in our Pokhara tour to give you a basic idea of walking on the Himalayan trails. This short hike offers you a solitary time amidst lush forests and presents excellent mountain views. Away from the chaos of the city, you get some time to relax and enjoy nature.

Have a glimpse of the mountain lifestyle

Another great aspect of the Naudanda hike is you get to see the mountain lifestyle. People from the Gurung community are found on the trail. You get to see them doing their daily chores. Their village lifestyle is very simple.

Explore Pokhara

And how can we miss exploring the monuments in Pokhara? Around Pokhara, there are many caves and temples along with stunning lakes. Visiting all the places in this Pokhara Tour is not possible. So, we have picked the best ones that include Davis Falls, Gupteshwor Cave, Bindabasini Temple, etc. If time allows, we also visit the gorgeous Begnas Lake.

You can also combine the Pokhara tour after your trek to Annapurna Base Camp, Annapurna Circuit, or Ghorepani Poon Hill because all these treks end at Pokhara.

    Fantastic Pokhara Tour

    We had a great 4 days Pokhara Tour with Outfitter Himalaya. The tour guide Ramesh and Driver Raj were fantastic. The hotels, transports and all arrangements are good.

    The Pokhara is a beautiful place in Nepal that you should not miss on your Nepal visit. We completed the Everest Base Camp Trek, and traveled to Pokhara after our EBC trek. The highlight of the Pokhara tour is the Phewa Lake, Barahi temple, Shanti peace stupa, Sarangkot Sunrise, and Devi's falls.

    They are the best. Highly recommend!
