Experience the magnificent splendour of Nepal's Pokhara region

This short adventure features one of the world’s most spectacular sights – the stunning array of Himalayan peaks seen from the lookout tower of Sarangkot. Pokhara, a historic town on the old trading route between India and China, is the ultimate place to experience Nepal’s famed natural splendour without the taxing effort of a mountain hike.

Independent travel, without the stress. Peregrine’s Independent Experiences are a range of short ‘mini tours’ that you can add to other Experiences or as an extension to a longer tour, to craft your perfect holiday itinerary. Independent Experiences are for 1-3 travellers, come accompanied by a local Peregrine guide and depart daily.

From 1st January 2018 this itinerary will no longer be available as an Independent Experience. For another great itinerary that visits Pokhara, see our new Vintage Nepal (PHNV) trip.
