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, …
... A great place with more fantastic views! Met 2 French youths, Nellie & Victor who were very welcoming, as were the owners. Got a nice room with a double bed & a few arm chairs. Took another shower & washed my clothes (a daily event as I'm travelling light). There was another storm, but not as bad as yesterday's, and when it had passed there was another good view of the Annapurna's so we went on the roof for photos. When I came down I met a very nice German ...
... just before heavy rain came down. The Nepali mountain weather was funny in that every morning started with bright sunny sky, then clouds would start to form in the early afternoon, by late afternoon heavy rain came, sometimes it would bring hail too. I took the opportunity to finally start on the books that I'd downloaded, before an early night to get ready for another grueling week of ...
... down, then proceeded to spend 2 hours getting the names and signatures of 362 student!
Once we were done we all headed for Chiya and chow mein at the local cafe to celebrate the success of the session. I spent the afternoon trying to meditate and reading on the roof.
The day of parading. We were meant to take a class today but due to the fact it is a holy day Lashar - a Gurung community New Year celebration we couldn't. Seeing as our host family ...
... left Manang going up. Again we were at a point where we had to make decision (remember how the three of us love decisions?). After some thinking and talking to other people Mattias and I decided to go back down to Besi Sahar (about 4 or 5 day walk) and try to get back to Pokhara. Mikael (together with Yuri) decided to stay put for a day and wait if there was more information the next day. Around 10 we left the guest house and ...
