Packing for Pokhara, Nepal

While you might be inclined to pack wintery clothes for Pokhara, I would urge you to carefully pack and not overload winter clothes. However, if you are going in the peak winter season then you might require a layer more for visiting beautiful romantic places in Pokhara. In months like March, April, May, September, October, and November you may also pack shorter dresses as in these months the temperature here is comfortable. We also recommend packing an umbrella as rains are a little unpredictable here. Nepal, being a little more culturally focused country, carrying decent clothes in order to visit some of the magnificent Pokhara temples is recommended. Lastly don’t forget to pack your toiletries depending upon the kind of hotel you have checked in you might or might not get these in your hotel rooms.

Where To Stay in Pokhara

The central attraction point of Pokhara is the lake and so most hotels and resorts are made facing it. The best part about Pokhara is that one get stay options for all budget ranges. Most of the guesthouses that are there in Pokhara are quite reasonably priced and have good amenities. From the rooms, one can have a lake view. While from hotel balconies or terraces one can see the mesmerizing Annapurna mountain ranges of the Himalayas and enjoy a lazy breakfast or the evening tea time.
