Learn about the Nepalese soliders who fought with the British and Indian armies at Gurkha Memorial Museum. The museum's three floors display countless photographs and items such as uniforms and medals, including the Victoria Cross--the highest bravery medal. Upon entering, the melody of Nepali music greets you, accompanied by images depicting the difficult lives of Ghurka soldiers. The rest of the first floor continues in the same fashion, with audio effects alongside informative displays that focus on military history. The second floor focuses on the traditions of each infantry regiment, while the third floor displays concentrate on engineering and transport regiments.

  • If you are planning to visit Pokhara or in Pokhara, it's worth to explore this mesuem. It displays the history-present of Indian and British Gurkha Army and their bravery. You may also see the uniform they wore, medals they won and Victoria Cross winner as well.
  • Small museum, lots of photos, nothing interactive. Interesting only if you are keen on Gorkha or British history, otherwise better skip it for a nice hike around the hills.
  • Lots of good info on the storied Gorkha military unit through 200 years of history. Exhibits could use some TLC and mainteance.
  • Contains different military related pictures, materials and information from the time of WWI till now. Must VISITonce.
  • Cool place with years of Gorkha history.

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.
