How long do you need in Pokhara?

Pokhara is one For a few weeks but just as easily stay In a couple of days. We remained here 12 days which was perfect. It gave us time to enjoy the outside, yet nevertheless, relax and revel in the slower pace coming from Kathmandu. We’d suggest a minimum of 5 times to take advantage of everything on offer, not including any treks (include 4 to 22+ times on for that).


All accommodation is located in Lakeside, near Phewa Lake. There are guest houses every which way you look and it could be overwhelming to select. To help you out, we’ve listed some that we remained at and looked at. Our #1 choice would be Harvest Moon Guest House (based on a backpacker budget). And the staff are worth the walk.


At most guest homes the cost for a Basic double room is $14-$20 USD (including breakfast). There are hotels with dorm rooms for as low as $5 and hotels with rooms upwards of $100 USD.
