Bird watching around Pokhara

I'm hoping to visit Pokhara late Nov/early Dec looking for at 2/3 night trek out bird-watching or is it better day-tripping out of Pokhara?

Any suggestions or information welcome.

You would possibly get more variety of habitats if you trek for a couple of days.

Possibly by road to Nyapul, then North along the valley of the Modi Khola perhaps as far as the Beehive Lodge where the track from Ghandruk to Landrung crosses the river, or the lodgges at New Bridge (Himal Qu) for the first night. The next day ascend via Landrung and then on through farmland and then woods to Dhampus. Stay wherever you like along this route, then the following morning descend via Dhampus to Dhampus Phedi and a lift back to Pokhara

Hello Johnnie,

You can try Alanyeti's itinerary that would be great for bird watching and simple trek. The trek offers you chances to see different birds along rice terraces and green hills. And moreover definitely there are numbers of attractions like scenic views of the mountains, rhododendron forest, towering waterfalls etc.

While you need more information then please post in the forum.

With best regards,
