On the following day, we have our breakfast in hotel then pack our stuff for a drive to Pokhara through Prithvi highway. After a drive about three hours, you will reach Manakamana Temple, which means Temples of fulfilling wishes.Thousands of Hindus visit this temple every year with the belief that their wishes get fulfilled after the visit to this temple in the Gorkha district of Nepal. Stories abound of people’s wishes coming true: lost sons returning home, lovers finding romance against all odds, people finding success in their business ventures, students excelling in their exams, etc.Unlike in other temples, the priest in the temples comes from an ethnic group, Magar, non-Brahmin caste. The temple located at the top of the hill can be reached with the help of the one and only cable car service in Nepal. The cable car ride of 30 minutes is an attraction on itself.

If you have a flexible time then you could extend your holiday and stay an overnight in Manakamana and visit the surrounding area. However, visiting Manakamana temple and driving to Pokhara is also possible unless you travel on Friday and Saturday. Since, the temple will have lot of visitors in these days.

Beautiful 3D2N Namobuddha, Balthali Easy Hike

Walked in this travel agent to book my hike. There are so many options for short hikes around Kathmandu valley, as a first time solo traveller, 1st time in Nepal, and 1st time to hike in the mountains plus I was not feeling very well, I wasn’t sure which hike to go for. Bishnu, the MD of the Company, was very understanding and recommended this hike according to my needs. The hike was perfect, 1st day easy 3 hrs hike to Namobuddha Monastery, Day 2, 5 hours hike along beautiful trails to Balthali, seeing villages and locals along the way. My local guide, Karma, was very friendly and easy going. It was a last min job for him, which he accepted, despite promising his daughter to bring her out, and also it was his new year! I was glad he brought his lovely daughter along, who added so much live and fun during the hike. When the monastery stay did not turn out as planned, he helped find alternative solution quickly. He ensured I get rooms with nice views as what I wanted, and brought me to local eating place in Namobuddha where I had one of the best Nepalese food! In Balthali, I stayed at Balthali Village Resort which was clean, comfortable and has great view! I get to see beautiful sunrise just what I was hoping for! I was not well and coughing badly, Karma ensured I was not rushed and paced the hike to accommodate me. From my interactions with Bishnu, the MD, I find him honest, humble and professional. It is rare to meet someone who believes in running an honest business and doing good to the communities. I would definitely recommend this agency to anyone.
