Pokhara:
Pokhara is a beautiful city to visit, much more quiet than Kathmandu. We were going up to Sarankot with the taxi at 5 o’clock am to see the magnificent sunrise at the Annapurna mountains and afterwards we hike from Sarankot, which was steep and beautiful. There are a lot of short hiking possibilities, but our time was too short (only 2 nights). My recommendation is to stay longer, also because one have to be very patient to get there, it’s about 9 hours bus drive from Kathmandu.

Bhaktapur/Nagarkot:
The old part of the city was gorgeous to see. We enjoyed the old temples, walked through narrow streets and observed the handicrafts makers at their work. We could have spent longer time there, but after two hours we had a pick up to Nagarkot, where we wanted to see the sunset and in the early morning the sunrise at the mountain peaks and both were amazing. After breakfast we started walking down to Changu, a little we missed walking around Nagarkot. The first hour we walked along a very nice forest trail, but the next 2,5 hours we had to walk on the road, which was on construction and very dusty. May be there is another trail you could offer from Nagarkot down?
