Kalikasthan Day Hike offers you the opportunity to explore some untouched cultural villages around Begnas Lake. Moreover, you will also enjoy astounding vistas from the settlements along with local cuisines. It is a single day hike and very easy to do.
We will drive to Begnas Lake via a private vehicle. From there, we will begin our Kalikasthan Day Hike. We will ascend for about 45 minutes to reach the Kalikasthan village, which is a small Gurung settlement. The place provides some magnificent views of the Annapurna Massif along with an exclusive glimpse into the local culture. From there, we will continue our day hike uphill for one hour to reach Thulkote, which is a comparatively large settlement. The site offers some stunning views of Annapurna and Machhapuchhre along with the beautiful Pokhara valley. We will also be able to see both Phewa and Begnas Lakes.
After spending time and having lunch at Thulkote, we will begin our descent. We will pass along terraced farmlands and green forests before reaching Kaulekote. It is another settlement that houses people of numerous ethnicities. We will quickly explore the village and descend further. Finally, after 3 hours of downhill hike, we will arrive at the other end of Begnas Lake. We will then take a boat ride to cross the lake and have some food at the local restaurants. Then, we will ride back to Pokhara.
We will make sure that you’ll smoothly complete this trek while enjoying it to the fullest. Also, we will provide you this short and easy trek at an affordable price. Additionally, we offer an experienced guide that will accompany you throughout Kalikasthan Day Hike.
