It is not an easy feat to find [poi = 107192] Pokhara [/ poi] a cheap and decent hostel near the lake. By a stroke of luck, whilst walking with my backpack in tow, I had the great good fortune to discover The Wood Pigeon, almost the last house before the end of Lake Side (the main street in Pokhara). This simple little hotel is clean and very quiet, and the rooms are equipped with private bathrooms. They are overlooking the lake and the views are spectacular. Their windows are so big and the view is amazing (the photos attached are taken from there). You can stay lying in bed for hours watching the scenery. The people who run the hotel are very friendly. Right there you can order a laundry service, which is usually done on the same day. There is even hot water!
Like all shelters where you take refuge during the treks to Annapurna, the Super View Top, in the remote village of Tadapani, has no electricity (only a generator that gives light at a certain time of night), no hot water, no toilets and no phone. That's right: The shelters in this part of the world only provide a room where you do not die of cold and you have to sleep fully clothed, inside your sleeping bag. They have dining room with long tables where you get plenty of typical local food. But none of this matters when you look out of any window or door of the hostel and see the fabulous view around you. The Fishtail is unique among the clouds and lit by an unreal moon (I happened to witness it full, as seen in the photos), silhouetted against the sky.
We spent some really great days in Pokhara, and this is partly thanks to Stan and his wife Indira. In Pokhara we were just looking for a place to sleep, but The Mountain House exceeded our expectations. Its facilities are normal for a pension, but the friendliness of the staff make you feel at home. Stan was helpful to us at all times helping when we were planning our trips and his wife Indira prepared the best meal we had had so far in Nepal: regional home. There was no better way to start the day than with breakfast on the terrace. And if we agreed it with Indira, we were prepared a typical Nepalese meal home cooked asalways, it was much appreciated. The only drawback, which is not large, as it occurs throughout the country, are power cuts. In a more upmarket hotel they might have standby power for the entire establishment, but in most, when the cuts occur, the supply in the room is reduced to a lamp, so it would not be fair to blame mismanagement by the establishment. They also donateto a small portion of their profits go to help an orphanage that is located near Khatmandu, with whom they have established a partnership.
This pint-sized hostel offers very clean and very spacious rooms. Its location, just in front of the lake and its wonderful views, known as the "roof of the world" make it a great choice and very inexpensive if you come to the city of Pokhara. The roof of the world consists of about 6 peaks between 5 and 7 thousand feet. Its center is dominated by the famous Anapurna, translated as "fishtail". Its sunsets are known worldwide, as the front of the Anapurna turns bright orange and becomes one of the natural wonders of the world. In the hostel there is no restaurant but less than 100m. away you will find more than 20 of them. The price goes up or down in relation to the people there at the time but varies between 2.5 and 5 euros per night. Speechless!

Each room is equipped with everything you need to have a spectacular stay. The service personnel cater one hundred percent to customer needs.
Looking for a yoga center near the inn, I found this little wonder hidden in the mountains. It's an ideal place to lose yourself and get away from the hustle and bustle of the city. It's well-maintained by the family who runs it, and offers many activities you can arrange them with them: yoga, paragliding, hiking, airline tickets, bus fares, etc. The location is wonderful, and I recommend it to all!
All the best,
