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, …
It is difficult to describe what our time in Nepal was like, which is probably why this post is so long overdue, as we have now been re-accustomed to the luxuries of the first world, but that is for a later post..... We spent 2 days in Kathmandu before the earthquake happened, visiting temples that stood for 100's of years but now are gone. We found Kathmandu a fascinating city. It is far from even the surface level westernization of the South East Asian cities we have visited. ...
... Zimmer vergeben sind. In Lower Sinuwa lernten wir Edda und Martin kennen, ein Paar in den 40ern aus Hamburg, welches seit 5 Jahren jedes Jahr für einen Monat nach Nepal kommt, unter anderem um eine Trekkingtour zu unternehmen. Wir sollten die Zwei noch 3 weitere Male in Unterkünften treffen.

... a cavalcade of vehicles coming toward me. I just managed to get my video camera out to film them passing. They had a police escort, they were all 3 wheel scooters, and they each carried a placard. I only saw one in English near the back which said "equal access for disabled" so that explained their mission. Guess its very hard here for access, its bad enough trying to cross the road as an able bodied type (if I fall into that category), and that first step onto a bus is ...
... and it will be cooler. We must hurry so that we that we 'before sunset Nagarkot', our objective for today, and find a hotel. As we go through the valley, we see a small village at the top of the top of a mountain. Alex says this is Nagarkot. Entspurt! Now grabs me the ambition, I don't wait for more to my fellow travellers, can't manage the final ascent as quickly as possible and let my fellow travellers, because I would like to finally ...
