Best time to go
Between June and September, Nepal experiences heavy rains as part of the monsoon season. Consequently, the best time to visit Pokhara is either in early spring or late autumn, when the skies are clear and the mountain views are at their most spectacular. Thanks to its elevated position, Tiger Mountain Pokhara Lodge is consistently several degrees cooler than the Nepalese lowlands.
At Tiger Mountain Pokhara Lodge, guests can do as much or as little as they like.
