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.

... with pain. There was no way I could handle this for another four hours. I had to turn back. We got back to the lodge and I started the agonizing process of restarting the circulation in my fingers and toes by the stove. I was so disappointed that I had given up, but I was at my physical limit. About 5 minutes after we got back, the Australian group also returned. They had only managed to get a little further than us up the mountain. Their guide said that he had ...
... brightly we noticed a colourful rainbow in the sky to our left over the mountain range. It was good to know Johnny was with us and watching over us.
Once we were off the glacier the crampons were removed and we found ourselves now climbing down over large boulders similar to the ascent except now we were sliding down on our butts stabilized by our arms and hands.
Eventually the trail flattened as we approached Dzongla, and arrived at ...
... pick up a room these days for between £10-30 bed and breakfast,and if we're not going to camp till we get to Oz,then can not see any point struggling with the weight. So off we went yesterday to UPS,with said tent, sleeping bag,air mattresses,cooking stove and pans and a few other things and managed to shed 20 kgs,so the bike is now going to feel a lot lighter,now we just need to lose a few stones and we have cracked it! Guess what,it's pee-ing it down,just like ...
... dumplings and some chicken fried noodles. I had it packed so that is tomorrows meal. We went to 'busy bees' where we had cocktails and sheesha, great night and lovely girl who I had a lot in common with. The walk back was scary as my hotel was set back from main strip so I had to walk through a dark walk way with just head torch And my heart was racing but I made it. . Phew! ! Now my trek starts. . Lets hope there is no rain for me! ...
... of tea at tea houses whenever we felt like it. I have never had so much tea in my life but I really enjoyed it all! At night I would sit by the fire, watch the families prepare dinner, and go to sleep around 8 or 9pm. Tea houses are scattered throughout the mountains every 30 to 90 minutes on the trail. They are real peoples homes, with extra rooms for guests. There is usually hot water and a solar or hydro lamp or two in the kitchen but most people cook ...
