Traveled for : 3 Days. Expenses : 75K. Paragliding Cost Rs. 5000 per person.

 ABOUT EXPENSES IN POKHARA :

Pokhara is expensive than Kathmandu City. Local transport is Rs. 20 minimum. Reaching Pokhara from Kathmandu cost Rs. 400-550 depends of Vehicles. I suggest you to bargain a lot. Hotels rooms around Pokhara Lake side is 900 average. If you eat lunch in hotel you have to buy mineral water bottle of you own. Pay fees for entrance like Mahendra cave , Devis Fall , Bat Cave , Lakes , Temples etc. Ticket price varies to types of tourist. I calculate average cost per day is Rs 1500 for Nepali and 2500 for Foreigners only if you stay low.

ABOUT OUR TOUR:

We went to Kalanki at 7 a.m to take bus. Took a bus and reach pokhara around 2 p.m. Start to hunt for best and cheap hotels for stay. Everybody got fresh and went for walking in cities. All the 7 friends hire bicycle and starts cycling for hour around cities. At evening we went to Trisara Resturant as a request of one friend name Roshan. Back to hotel and rest.
