Pokhara on our Muktinath Guided Off Road Motorcycle Tours NepalDay 3) Pokhara: 4* Hotel

Back on the highway today – there will be some great views of the alpine   scenery as we head along road, but if you want to take it in, make sure to stop your bike first as you never know what’s round the corner when riding in Nepal! It’ll be hot as the road takes us down into the river valley. Arriving in Pokhara will be a spectacular experience, it’sa tourist town like no other. The mountains lie before your eyes with the white and glistening peaks reflected in the waters of Lake Phewa around which the town sits. There will be time for a boat ride to the lake’s temple and to say some prayers to guide us safely on our way to Muktinath. To get to our hotel tonight we have to go on a raft pulled across the lake by a rope. Fishtail Lodge is in a unique location situated on a peninsula on Lake Phewa, a scenic base for a short stay in the town. 112km
