Sarangkot Mountain Lodge

Take advantage of the infinity-edge rooftop pool and 360-view bar, with breathtaking vistas of the Annapurna Range and Pokhara Valley, at this stylish mountain retreat. Rooms feature private balconies, wood-panelled ceilings and sleek, contemporary furnishings.

Hotel Barahi

Just a couple of minutes’ walk from the shores of Phewa Lake, this cosy hotel in Pokhara has a large outdoor pool, a wellness centre and bright, airy rooms. The all-day restaurant, Pokhara Flavor, serves a wide variety of cuisines and hosts traditional Nepalese dance shows every evening.

Wild camping

The beauty is in the tranquility of this secluded camping spot on the banks of the Seti River. Relaxing on the river beach, huddling around a wood fire and sleeping under the stars is an unforgettable experience – no luxuries required.
