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.

  • we were guided after paying the entrance fee, but as we went down it would have been better with more light or torch, and a more detailed explanation would help  more »
  • Bad steps, muddy, hot and sweaty...not much to see unless you want to see the shrine...which you could see and not go all the way down.  more »
  • cave is average and overpriced and full of building works but view at end is worth it, shrine is also average.  more »
