Dhampus Hiking

Pokhara is the second largest destination city for tourist. This is the best place to hike. Taking to your feet is the only way to see most mountain areas of Pokhara but it is also the best way to see around the village is rich in cultural diversity. Normally, this is one-day hiking route but if you would like to spend some time with the villagers and know about their life, Plan Holidays can make it a 2-day trip.

We can a discover a hiking in Dhampus from Pokhara. A very scenic drive of about 30 minutes takes you past Pokhara to where you start your day hike, this place is called Phedi. You ascend through beautiful farmland as you make your way to the village of Dhampus(1,770m) 6/7 hours which is a popular destination for both Natural as well as the cultural perspective view. Trees here are filled with rare species of flowers which are conserved. Dhampus Hiking includes rural cultural activities, fascinating ethnic groups and magnificent silver capped Mountain View.

There are absolutely stunning views of Machapuchare(Fishtail), Annapurna range including Annapurna South, Hiuchuli, Annapurna (II, III, IV), Lamjung Himal and Manaslu and others like Ganesh Himal that made all the more beautiful by the rural scene in front of fields of corn and wheat, small villages and women in brightly colored saris. Those who do not have climbing skills also can join the Dhampus hiking.

The hikers can explore the hills. Cultural societies around the villages are conventionally established and are worth the visit. The towering Himalayan peaks are best viewed at sunrise and the village also gives you a good opportunity to experience the lifestyle of the locals and take part of their generous hospitality. Don’t hesitate to choose Pokhara for your holiday tour trip as well as for hiking. It’s really a peace and beautiful place and can have spiritually relaxation.

Simply put “WOW”.

Simply put "WOW". I have never met more responsible people in my life. They made sure every step of the way was taken care of from the drivers, tour guides, trek guides, porters and hotel accommodations. I highly recommend this company for its hard working, responsible and friendly people. The people make a company. Special thanks to: Anuja "the planner", Chitiz & Ashmir "the ultimate trekking guides" and finally Robin "the enthusiastic jungle bird watcher".

Plan Holidays did a fantastic job on our whole trip!

Plan Holidays did a fantastic job on our whole trip! We did the trip that included time in Kathmandu, Pokhara, Chitwan National Park and a 5-day trek around Annapurna. From the moment we stepped off the plane, we had guides showing us around and everything was perfectly planned for us. Maila, our trekking guide was amazing and had so much knowledge! It was a great trip!

Incredibly well organized

This company was amazing. Incredibly well organized. I felt safe and spoiled. Our airport transports were always early and waiting for us. All of our reservations for our accommodations and busses were perfect. The temple tour we took was super fun and educational. Some of our luggage got stuck in our layover country and between this travel agency and our hotel they were able to get it for us and deliver it the next day. We also had a 10month old traveling with us and they made sure that our accommodation and travel plans were safe for him. During our 5 days of trekking, we had THE BEST guide/sherpa. I would positively let them plan another trip for us. Thank you!!!!
Karen Graves,

I had a wonderful experience

I recently booked a tour with Plan Holidays, and I had a wonderful experience. Anuja scheduled the tour, and it was comforting to have our trip covered without any concerns. Our guide Shiva took us through Kathmandu, and showed all us the highlights of the city and provided us with the cultural and historical background. We also did the Poon Hill Trek with guides Chitiz and Ashmir, who provided a peaceful hike through the Himalayas. On our last two days, we spent time in Chitwan National Park, where our guide, Robin, took us on adventures where we saw crocodiles and rhinos. The entire package was affordable, and our guides met our every need; they went out of their way for us on many occasions. It was comforting to get off the bus and see our guides waiting for us with our name tags. I would highly encourage anyone to book a trip through this company. I promise that you will have an amazing experience--five stars!
