Pokhara

Lake City

Pokhara, the second largest city in the country, attracts visitors with its superlative natural wonders and easygoing atmosphere.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Paddle Nepal - Day Tours and Helicopter Tours. There's still lots to do: get the adrenaline pumping with an extreme tour, surround yourself with nature on a nature and wildlife tour, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Peace Temple, and contemplate the waterfront views at Phewa Tal (Fewa Lake).

To find where to stay, photos, other places to visit, and more tourist information, refer to the Pokhara trip itinerary planning app.

Gorakhpur, India to Pokhara is an approximately 8-hour car ride. You can also drive. You'll lose 0.2 hours traveling from Gorakhpur to Pokhara due to the time zone difference. When traveling from Gorakhpur in November, plan for a bit cooler days and about the same nights in Pokhara: temperatures range from 28°C by day to 15°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 30th (Mon) so you can 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.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Skydiving and Safaris. There's much more to do: paddle through the water with a kayaking and canoeing tour, stop by Gorkha Zone Khukuri House, don't miss a visit to Ghanta Ghar Clock Tower, and relax and rejuvenate at some of the best spas.

To see photos, maps, other places to visit, and other tourist information, refer to the Kathmandu sightseeing planner.

Traveling by combination of flight and car from Pokhara to Kathmandu takes 2.5 hours. Alternatively, you can drive; or take a bus. Traveling from Pokhara in December, expect little chillier with lows of 5°C in Kathmandu. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 3rd (Thu) so you can go by car to Nagarkot.
