I had read the glowing reviews for this guest house before arriving, but to simply say they were accurate seems an understatement. When my husband and I arrived at The Sacred Valley Inn, we had just completed twenty hours of adventurous transport crossing from Varanasi, India over land, to Pokhara. This in itself would have been challenging, but I had become violently ill just before departing Varanasi, so the trip was both gruelling and exhausting. We could not have arrived at a better place. It is never fun being ill away from home, but Bishnu and his staff at the Sacred Valley Inn went to great lengths to provide support, including arranging a doctor appointment, and sending me to the hospital with a guide to translate and assist with all steps of the process.
We ended up staying at the Sacred Valley Inn for almost three weeks, enough time for me to gather my energy back so that we could actually take part in some of the many activities that Pokhara has to offer. Once again, Bishnu and his staff were always a wealth of knowledge and willing to arrange any trips we were interested in if requested, but we were never made to feel that they were pushing anything upon us. During our time here, we chose to book all of our excursions through the hotel, including a three day trek, paragliding, and river rafting, as well as booking our transportation to our next destination, Katmandu. Non of the prices were inflated, and the service was always prompt and reliable.
The Sacred Valley Inn offers a broad range of rooms to suit any budget, all of which are spacious and very clean, but we chose one of the two rooms on the top floor, with the accompanying rooftop terrace. We felt like we had our own modest penthouse suite, as we enjoyed excellent breakfasts every day watching the para gliders take off from Sarankot, and on clear days, the amazing peaks of the Annapurna Range.
We cannot recommend this hotel highly enough.

Although it is never fun being ill away from home, and I was definitely ill when we arrived here, I cannot imagine a better place to recuperate than the lovely laid back little town of Pokhara, Nepal. Situated on beautiful Lake Fewa, surrounded by the Annapurna Range of the Himalayas, with one Main Street lined with countless restaurants, …
... screaming and people started to ran out of the airport building but sadly its seems a false alarm.
Results I was in deep shocked as I was having deep sleep and awakened by screamers.
Some afraid of human stampede.

... sorry for him – he had probably been suffering for a while and it must have been really bad for him to have to admit defeat and turn around. Most people show mild symptoms, but AMS can actually be fatal if you ignore it, so we were pretty glad he turned around.
I took over the role of porter and we continued on to the ABC. The morning had been clear but the clouds had rolled in by now (as usual) and the views had disappeared. We arrived at the base ...

For dinner I asked for Dahl batt, so was privileged to be asked to eat with our hosts in their house. It was very nice, one of the best I've eaten. Nepali's have this meal twice a day, every day. You would think they would get bored with ...

Many children were waving at us from afar, as you see us. I feel like on an alien planet. The children look at us as if we were exotic species. We are asked whether we have a pair of pins for you. Unfortunately, we must deny this. Who has a pin on trekking in?!
