Pokhara, the second largest city in the country, attracts visitors with its superlative natural wonders and easygoing atmosphere.
Start off your visit on the 3rd (Thu): soothe aching muscles at some of the top local wellness centers, then contemplate the waterfront views at Phewa Tal (Fewa Lake), and then glide through the air with a parasailing or paragliding tour.

For other places to visit, photos, where to stay, and tourist information, you can read our Pokhara trip itinerary planner.

Gaya, India to Pokhara is an approximately 14-hour car ride. You can also do a combination of flight and car. Plan for slightly colder temperatures traveling from Gaya in October, with highs in Pokhara at 32°C and lows at 21°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 3rd (Thu) early enough to travel to Kathmandu.

Kathmandu

Once synonymous with the mysterious and inaccessible Shangri-La, today Kathmandu draws an ever-increasing number of tourists, catering to independent travelers of various budgets.
Kathmandu is known for historic sites, parks, spas, adventure, and classes. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: get outside with Outdoor Activities, take in the spiritual surroundings of Swayambhunath Temple, push the limits with an extreme tour, and take in nature's colorful creations at Garden of Dreams.

To see ratings, maps, photos, and more tourist information, read our Kathmandu trip itinerary planner.

Kathmandu is just a stone's throw from Pokhara. Plan for a bit cooler nights when traveling from Pokhara in October since evenings lows in Kathmandu dip to 17°C. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 8th (Tue) to allow time for travel back home.
