When packing be aware that dress standards are conservative throughout Asia, especially outside major cities. To respect this and for your own comfort, we strongly recommend modest clothing. This means 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.
Travellers below the age of 12 are not permitted on this tour.
If you are happy with the services provided by your local guides and drivers a tip - though not compulsory - is appropriate. While it may not be customary to you, 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 across many Intrepid Urban Adventures destinations. Please consider this when budgeting for your extra expenses on this tour
See and feel Pokhara from a different perspective. Head out on a local transport to the outlying hills- Naudanda (1hr approx), literally meaning 9 hills. A soft relief of the gently rolling chain of hills with their rice fields in terraces, subtropical forests, and the silhouette of the Himalayas, with its imposing self merely 30kms away, gives this place an appealing look.
A walk through this charming land transports you to a total contrast, far-removed from where you started your day. From one village to another and one hill to another, you reach Sarangkot, a vantage point on top of a hillock north of Fewa Lake (3hrs approx) – famous for its dawn and dusk views.
The descent puts you at the road-head at Sedi (2hrs approx) and a further walk along the circumference of Fewa Lake leads to the conclusion at Lakeside (30mins approx).
