Where to stay in Pokhara

The country's second largest city has long been on the radar of international travelers, so you won't be disappointed with the number of places to stay in town. Most people look no further than the lakeside area, and if you're only in town for a short while, it really makes sense to stay by the water. You'll find standard larger hotels and pristine boutiques with attractive gardens and views, as well as a number of guesthouses run by families and aimed at backpackers. If you're going to be in town for a while longer, take a look at the rental properties available, either by the lake or in some of the less-frequented residential districts.

  • Begnas Taal was definitely a good choice despite the long ride for escaping the lakeside and its crowd. It's more quiet and less crowded.  more »
  • Same as Fewa Lake with the colorful boats .. bit of a drive to get there .. something to do if you are really bored .. good thing , far less tourists!  more »
