The beauty of this destination is the diversity within such a small area – You can cover this small town on foot in a few hours.

Beautiful country, great people, an amazing experience!
Spent about a month in Nepal last year with San trekking. It was such a beautiful experience. Trekking in Pokhara in the Annapurna region and mountain flight was just out of this world. Their team took great care of us. Beautiful country, great people, an amazing experience!
