Kalikasthan Day Hike allows you to explore some untouched cultural villages around Begnas Lake. Also, we can behold two of the lakes out of seven lakes in the Pokhara valley. The place offers astounding vistas of the Himalayas and Gurung Village settlements along the route.

The villagers strictly follow the traditional Gurung cultures so, we get to peek at the typical village lifestyle. The extended form of this trek is the Royal trek Nepal, one of the renowned short treks of the Annapurna region.

More About This Hike

Most of the Hike on the periphery of Pokhara valley offers a tranquil view of the serene Fewa Lake. Different from that, this trek grants an opportunity to gawk at the equally famed Begnas lake and Rupa lake.

Along the hike, we are encompassed by terraced fields, farmlands, lush vegetation and scattered settlements. This trek is hugely dominated by the Gurungs however, we can find locals of other ethnic groups in some villages. Also, we can savour the local cuisines while gazing at the majestic Himalayas like Mt. Annapurna, Mt. Machhapuchhre, and other mountains of the Annapurna region.

Moreover, after the completion, we can opt to do boating in Begnas lake. However, Rupa lake doesn't offer any kind of services.

Best travel company in Pokhara!

Mohan was extremely accommodating and went above and beyond to help us with everything I did in Nepal. He is the go-to guy for everything and I owe many of my best experience in Nepal to him. Highly recommend this travel company. Also, shout out to Bharat who was an excellent guide!

Under arrangements by North Nepal Travels&Treks, I had amazing hiking to World Peace Pagoda and paragliding in Pokhara. Niraj and his brother -the guides of mine for the hiking are very cute and explained me a lots of Nepali history and cultures during hiking. They become good friends of mine. Hope to see them again in Nepal or China.
