How to Spend 2 Days in Pokhara

How to Spend 2 Days in Pokhara

Pokhara is a beloved outdoor-adventure-sport destination, and with two days in the city you can enjoy a range of experiences. From getting a bird’s-eye view of the Annapurna range to white-water kayaking, here’s how to spend two days in the lakeside city.

Day 1: Take to the Skies

**Morning:**Almost every day you’ll see colorful paragliders floating in the air above Pokhara’s Lake Fewa (Phewa Tal)—join them on your first morning in the city. The jumping-off point is Sarangkot Hill, and you’ll quickly see why this is said to be one of the best paragliding spots in the world: The views of the Annapurna range, the villages and farmland below, and Lake Fewa beyond are spectacular. 

**Afternoon:**After the morning’s excitement (and with big plans for the day tomorrow), spend a relaxing afternoon by the lake. Stroll along the promenade and snap some pictures of Pokhara’s famous paddleboats, shop for souvenirs, indulge in a massage or spa treatment, or enjoy an afternoon by your hotel pool. 

**Night:**An hour or so before sunset, take a private vehicle up to the Peace Pagoda (Shanti Stupa), on the south side of the lake. The bright-white stupa, on top of a hill with sweeping views over the lake and the mountains beyond, is a perfect sunset-viewing spot. Return to Pokhara for dinner.

Day 2: Water-Sports Fun

**Morning and Afternoon:**With the Seti River close to the city, Pokhara is an ideal base for day-trippers wanting to try some white-water rafting or kayaking. Beginners can enjoy rafting on the moderate, class II–IV rapids, and experienced white-water kayakers can practice their skills. 

Alternatively, spend the day on Lake Fewa instead, hiring a paddleboat (with an oarsman, if you wish) or even take a kayaking lesson. Sightseeing-boat rides make a stop at the Tal Barahi Temple, on a little island in the lake. 

**Night:**Pokhara’s Lakeside area has a vibrant nightlife scene, from cheap-and-cheerful shacks on the edge of the lake serving passable cocktails to more upmarket bars with a stylish ambience. Many bars offer happy-hour deals around sunset time, perfect for a final toast to Pokhara.
