Bachelors and solo adventurers place

It's a shame that currently there are tensions between the Indian and the Nepalese government as Nepal is one of the most awesome places on earth. One of the amazing jewels of Nepal is Pokhra. This is the place for adventure junkies and bachelors alike. If you've been to Nepal earlier, you know that bachelors can't go two streets without getting asked for girls. It's the same in Pokhra, there are exotic bars and amazing streets lit up with colourful lights, little DJ's playing music, sheesha parlors on both the sides. This scene is near the entry point of the Phewa lake, which is the adventurer's potion. You have boating here and you can even go kayaking in the river of you can get a hold of kayaks. Just go to the middle of the lake and stop paddling. You'll be at peace once you hear the sound of absolutely nothing. You can watch the sun set between the valleys and during a low season, you'll be the only ones in the lake which will account for some pretty extraordinary pictures. That said, the scene during new years here is just amazing, which means there's never a bad time to visit(except now because of political reasons). You can see three 8000m+ peaks from anywhere with an open space, the peaks include Annapurna circuit, Dhaulagiri and Manaslu. There are amazing temples here to visit too as they are built with a decent architecture but at amazing heights and views. Famous for its Paragliding, Pokhra offers the most exquisite views for gliders and hence paragliding is tad expensive compared to any other cost you may incur in Nepal, but the jump off the cliff over the Phewa lake and viewing the valleys as you move around with your glider hoping it would never end, is a feeling to cherish. Paragliding starts from the hill on the way from Pokhra to Sarangkot, a hilltop that will blow your mind with the infinite valleys that surround it. You can have an evening snack here, while watching the sunset and you'd wish you never had to leave.

Pokhra is the second largest city in Nepal and hence the connectivity is not an issue here. Also due to the development here you don't have an issue with food as the staple diet consists of rice, pulses and vegetables. Otherwise, expensive Indian restaurants are right around the corner of Phewa lake if you start missing the delicacies of India.

Pokhara is the one stop destination for all adventure enthusiasts or families alike

Paragliding, rafting, micro-flying, bungee jumping or any popular adventure sports you can think of, you will find it here in Pokhara. Pokhara is lovely place, Filled with people around the world. The lakeside area is the most happening place in Pokhara and you get a variety of restaurants and pubs to suit your needs.

Paragliding is something you shroud not miss at all. Flying up above the sky over a very beautiful lake is an enthralling experience. Apart from paragliding, you have bungee jumping and the flying fox, which also contributes to a great adventure trip. If you are planning for a week or two long trip, go for trekking also. I couldn't do it, as we had a very tight itinerary, but would love to try it sometime.

Pack your bags, and just rush down to Pokhara. Its worth it.
