Break away from the touristy side of Pokhara and embrace the tranquility and peace of its authentic middle-hills! Leave the hustle and bustle of the city behind as you hike through spectacular natural scenery and local settlements.
What to Expect
See and feel Pokhara from a different perspective! Head out on local transport to Pokhara's outlying hills, called Naudanda, meaning "nine hills." Be amazed by the gently rolling chain of hills with their terraced rice fields, subtropical forests, and behind it all, the silhouettes of the Himalayas.
A walk through this charming land transports you to a faraway time and place, vastly removed from where you started your day. From one village and one hill to another, you will reach Sarangkot, a vantage point on top of a hillock north of Fewa Lake and famous for its breathtaking dawn and dusk views.
Your descent puts you at the road-head at Sedi. A further walk along the circumference of Fewa Lake leads to the wonderful conclusion at Lakeside.

Know Before You Go
Maximum group size is 12.
Dress standards in Asia are conservative. We recommend modest clothing that covers your shoulders and knees. Loose, lightweight, long clothing is both respectful and cool in the predominantly hot Asian climate. In many rural areas in Asia, women will need to wear modest clothing even to swim. Singlets, tank tops, and topless sun bathing are all unacceptable. When visiting religious sites, men often need to wear long trousers and women a long skirt or sarong.
If you are happy with the services provided by your local guides and drivers a tip - though not compulsory - is appropriate. It is of great significance to the people who will take care of you during your travels, inspires excellent service, and is an entrenched feature of the tourism industry. Please consider this when budgeting for your extra expenses.
Children must be between 6 and 11 years of age.
