Kathmandu to Pokhara
Today it is a scenic drive west to Pokhara’s where its unique charm as a mountain lake resort derives from its year round temperate climate and stunning views of Machhapuchare (6997) and the mighty Annapurnas. Stay two nights at any of the good hotels at the lakeside like the Fish Tail Lodge on Phewa Lake, the excellent Shangrila Village Hotel or in the countryside 30 minutes by road outside of Pokhara, at the beautiful Tiger Mountain Village. For budget minded people, we have Hotel Fewa, Barahi, Kantipur, Base Camp, and Lake View Hotel.
Early morning drive to SARANKOT (45 minutes) with guide. Can be viewed a beautiful sunrise over the Annapurna range and overlook the valley of Pokhara. A view tower has been built on the top of Sarankot hill at an elevation of 1600 metres. Walk back towards Pokhara and hotel for breakfast. About 2 hrs.
