Easy hike to do on your own. Accommodation and food cheap. No problems finding the trail. Cheapest way to get from Pokhara to trail is by local bus for 100R.

Worth the hike!!! When we arrived at the top the view was cloudy, we ended up spending an hour or so waiting for it to clear and it was worth it!
