Best Sightseeing Tours in Pokhara

A common pick among every mountain hikers wish-list are the mountains of Pokhara in Nepal. The heavenly grace the Himalayas stand with leaves the visions of their spectators in awe. Nepal other than being the land of never ending treks and trails is also embedded with the medieval architect and traditional rituals of Buddhism. Kathmandu, 21kms away from Pokhara and the capital of Nepal is the starting-point for many adventurous treks in Nepal.

 

The Annapurna trek and the Gokyo Valley is one of the most commonly known adventure scopes in this country. There is so much to see and do in Pokhara that the most difficult part about traveling here is to decide how to accommodate everything. Thrillophilia.com arranges a chain of learning adventures to help you explore Pokhara in the right way and experience the local day to day lives of the people.

 

Right after the monsoons have showered their blessings and the heavy clouds have bid their farewell, September to November receives the sunshine of the mild sun welcoming the chilly breeze of the winters to soothe the town in; this is the best time to visit. With the cultures of Tibet, Pokhara serves the authentic Tibetan cuisines in most their local and elite restaurants. The flavor of spices mainly used in the food keeps the body warm and strong to keep up with the falling temperatures as the year descends towards winters.

 

Bungee Jump from the tip of the mountain, paraglide through the valleys with the cool breeze, kayak in the serene waters, cliff dive into the waterfall pools, board on the mountain flight for a bird’s eye view, ride around the towns exploring the authentic livelihood; we were born free and Pokhara gives one the experience to live free.
