There’s more to Pokhara than the resplendent beauty of one lake. On this Pokhara bike tour, we ride out to discover the magnificence of another lake. All geared up, we set in motion from our Pokhara base, in close proximity to Fewa Lake, to pedal our way out of the city, meandering uphill on a single track road repetitively switching back and forth between the lush woodlands and distinctive villages.
Relishing the pristine beauty of hillside landscape and distant views of monolithic hulk of awe-inspiring Himalayas along the way, we take a breather after about 2.5 hours at one of the wayside tea shops at Kalikasthan.
With the tougher part behind us, we our Pokhara bike tour continues down a dirt track at a relaxed pace as the beauty of Begnas Lake unravels itself bit by bit. Reaching Begnas, we go into one of the local eateries to try out the local produce, fish delicacies and replenish ourselves with filling lunch while admiring the beauty of the lake.
The return bike ride to Pokhara will take about an hour and a half, and is via a different, more straightforward route through the countryside and back into the town centre, where our day tour from Pokhara will come to an end.

Dress standard: When packing be aware that dress standards are conservative throughout Asia, especially outside major cities. To respect this and for your own comfort, we strongly recommend modest clothing. This means clothing that covers your shoulders and knees. Loose, lightweight, long clothing is both respectful and cool in the predominantly hot Asian climate. In many rural areas in Asia women will need to wear modest clothing even to swim. Singlets, tank tops and topless sun bathing are all unacceptable. When visiting religious sites men often need to wear long trousers and women a long skirt or sarong.
