As ladies of a certain age, but with a sense of adventure, we were a bit anxious about booking a Nepal trip and had had several false starts, talking to sales people, from "independent" companies who turned out to be part of big chains in the end and just seemed to want to take our money. I stumbled on True Traveller by accident and couldn't believe how knowledgeable they were, giving advice on everything from visas, to what to pack and what to watch out for. I couldn't fault them and that's praise indeed.
Pokhara is a place of remarkable natural beauty. The serenity of Phewa Lake and the magnificence of the fishtailed summit of Machhapuchhre (6,977 m) rising behind it create an ambience of peace and magic. At an elevation lower than Kathmandu, it has a much more tropical feel to it, a fact well appreciated by the beautiful diversity of flowers which prosper in its environs. Indeed, the valley surrounding Pokhara is home to thick forests, gushing rivers, emerald lakes, and of course, the world famous views of the Himalaya.
