Itinerary
Click for Dates and Prices Day 1 Pokhara
Namaste! Welcome to Pokhara. Your rejuvenating adventure commences this morning with an included transfer from the airport or your original accommodation. Pokhara is in an idyllic location, resting beneath the mighty snow-capped peaks of the Annapurna Range. Today, explore the Old City with your guide, passing by the traditional Newari houses and sacred Bhimsen and Bindhya Basini temples. Enjoy an included lunch at your spa resort, and see where you'll be spending the next two nights. The views of the Himalayas - from both your room and the outdoor pool - will calm even the most weary traveller. This afternoon, begin your relaxation with an included treatment of your choice at the onsite spa, which uses traditional perfumed oils, spices and floral essences only found in this region. Later tonight, indulge in a lakeside dinner and watch a folk dance performance as the sun sets on another day over Annapurna.

Day 2 Pokhara
Start your day right with a salute to the sun in a morning yoga class taught by a local yogi. Not only is this a calming activity, it can feel amazing for any potential post-hike muscle soreness! After some breakfast, take a paddle boat out on Pokhara’s Phewa Lake. Marvel at the reflections of the mountains in its shimmering waters and soak up the natural beauty surrounding you, before satisfying your appetite at Thakali Kitchen, where you can feast on delicious Nepalese thali for lunch. In the afternoon, make a visit to the Peace Pagoda – a gleaming white monument to peace that offers sweeping vistas of the Himalaya Range. Your afternoon and evening are free for you to do as you please, so consider relaxing by the resort’s peaceful infinity pool, or make your way back to the lakeside to watch the sunset.

Day 3 Pokhara
This morning, take an early visit to the small hilltop village of Sarangkot. Your leader for today will pick you up from your resort, and you will arrive in time to witness a glorious sunrise over the Annapurna Himalaya. Watch as the morning light colours the mountainous horizon illuminating the peaks, from Dhaulagiri in the west to Lamjung in the east, and to the misty valleys below. It’s truly a spectacular sight. Head back into town for an included breakfast, and afterwards, transfer to either Pokhara Airport or your accommodation where this short escape will end on arrival.
