Alternative to Pokhara

Alternative to Pokhara

Hey all

I am looking at spending a few nights near Pokhara before doing a short trek in the region. I’m not that keen on Pokhara itself and was wondering if anyone had any suggestions of a nice place to stay in the surrounding area?

Ideally, I’m after a decent guesthouse or the like, looking at spending up to $50/night but obviously less if I can manage it! Perhaps somewhere in a smaller village which might provide the chance to experience a bit of local life, as well as the opportunity to hop on a bike and explore some of the surrounding countryside, visit a local school (as I’m a primary school teacher) and so on.

I guess I’m looking at somewhere to the north of Pokhara (Astam? Ghachok?) or perhaps to the smaller lakes like Begnas? Or anywhere else that comes highly recommended!

Many thanks in advance…

Sedi bagar is an option to stay few days in am option of Pokhara because there are less tourists and you can feel and place is like small local settlement village. It is not far from Pokhara if you walk from the lakeside city can take you about 45- 1 hrs. Peace and quite place to stay.

Good luck! G
