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.

... of my original volunteer team met up after lunch to head out in boats on the lake. Split up between three boats, we met back in the middle of the lake and tied our boats together. We spent the majority of our time just jumping in and out of the boats and lazily swimming around. I got some great footage on my GoPro, which I'll hopefully be able to edit and post soon. The weather turned very quickly and we found our boats being pummelled by the growing swell on the lake, ...
Departed Pokhara 9.30am in what the locals call an Indian jeep! At each of the small settlements/villages we stopped and posted ' Nepali Reward' posters. the ACAP officer spoke with the villagers present, sometimes it was the Village Elder or the Chairman of the Village Council. Along the way we stopped for a drink and my driver picked berries from the side of the road. they tasted very sweet and looked like they were a ...
... thundering down the mountain side, then a few metres later passing beneath a similar looking ~snow covered mountainside and realising the urgency to keep moving !
Coming down the other side is pretty intense.Literally one step at a time stuff, with each step feeling weaker AND optimistically hoping the guesthouse will be over the next ridge, around the next rocky outcrop, or the next raging river crossing , but no.. only 4 or 5 hours to go !
... made me feel better. I was also able to help with some support planning to aid the ongoing recovery of the son who reminds me of some of my favourite clients. The family wanted me to come and stay with them. If I hadn't already paid my host I would have taken them up on the offer - they are just so lovely. In case you thought the fat jokes had ended, let me tell you about how I was talking to a new client about the programme and recovery etc only for ...
... the flight, it was remarkably smooth considering the deep gorges we had to fly through to reach Jomsom. The winds were minimal at that time of the day, and the weather overcast but stable. What a flight! It felt like I could reach out and touch the mountains and glaciers! After reaching Jomsom, we went for tea and ate our packed breakfasts of 2 pieces of bread, a hard boiled egg, banana, orange, and fruit juice box. Shanti, our guide was with us, but the two porters, Indra ...
