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.

... and would have taken a wrong turn. And it is easy to slip and fall down the steep hills or fall into the water while crossing the powerful streams. I remembered seeing "Missing!" posters of tourists scattered along houses and wondered how these people got lost and what had happened to them. Laxmi told me horrifying stories of insanely stupid tourists that did not think it was necessary to a) have a guide for certain routes (especially the jungle) ...

We woke up to another clear morning and got going early. There was an early ascent back up to Sinuwa (2,360m) but then a long downhill section towards the valley floor to cross a river. Then ...
... say that dinner was being served, potatoe & onion parathas with a spicy dip, very nice. The grumpy hits joined me at my table, but only spoke in German so I was excluded. The owner, then Be Be, then their older son came and spoke to me so it wasn't too bad. Went back to my room about 8.30 & read my book till 10. I knew that the rain would clear the air ready for a nice sunrise in the morning, so prepared to get up at 6am! Bad night with a few mossie bites...
... sunrises. I stood on a large concrete brick balcony with a mass of other tourists, and waited for the sun. Looking over the balcony ledge, it was a steep drop but I mounted the ledge, walked to the edge and sat. It was the only way to ensure I got view and photo opportunity without unsightly tourists getting in the way. "Be careful, don't fall", said a local Nepali guide who I poached to be my photographer (I was too proud to use the selfie stick). From what ...
