Lakeside, the major tourist hub in Pokhara will now be open continuously 24/7. The local administration recently took this decision to allow tourists to enjoy night life in Pokhara during their stay. For security purposes the authorities will be installing night-vision CCTV cameras at Lakeside’s major points. Hotel & other tourism entrepreneurs have hailed this decision as a positive step to boost tourism.
Dolpo requires some extra logsistics and Pemba made all necessary arrangements. We also benefited. Both treks were wonderful! from having a local guide- Baba –in Mustang- as this is more of a cultural trek-his personal knowledge was useful.
