11 Reasons You Should NEVER Visit Pokhara. Nope, Just Don’t Even Think About It!

If you have visited Pokhara, we are sorry, you had to go through such a pathetic time. And if you haven’t, great, and don’t even think about going to this horrible, horrible place. Why? Alright, we will give you eleven reasons.

1. Ugly Landscapes

Look at this ugly view. I mean, who would want to travel all the way to see such an ugly view of a lake with the reflection of some stupid mountains in it. Like seriously!

And there are some more as well, such as ultra flight, heli ride, stand up paddle-boarding, para-hawking among others that I definitely don’t give a damn about. Who in the world would instead of finding all of them Pokemons, would be interested in such ‘useless’ adventures? WHO????

4. Dull Hiking

Another ‘useless’ stuff that people say is the best thing to do in Pokhara is hiking. I don’t even understand why would people want to walk a hill just to see such lame scenes.

Seriously, what is wrong with the people? Haven’t they got anything better to do?

Walk the whole goddamn mountain to reach Peace Pagoda? Hmm? Just go and sleep, and it will be peaceful anyway.

5. Boring Lakes

There are like eight lakes in Pokhara and the neighboring municipality, Lekhnath. So what? What do we do with them?

And some ‘beautiful’ villages such as Ghandruk, Dhampus and Sikles among others. NO, THANK YOU!



7. Irksome Caves

Mahendra Cave, Bat Cave, Gupteshwor Cave and Kumari Cave are some of most popular tourist destinations in town. Seriously, dude? Who do you think I am? Flintstone? Ain’t nobody going to these dark and creepy dumb caves.

8.  Annoying Davis Fall

And then there’s this mundane water fall. Seriously, who has got so much time to go and see this dull fall?

To make it even worse, there’s this wish pool around . Buhahahaah!

9. Bird Watching For Boring People

With hundreds of species of birds found in and around Pokhara, some people love to go on bird-watching trips for days. Hahahahaha! Dude, from when did watching birds become an interesting activity?

11. Dreary Night Life, Music & Festivals

They say music runs in the veins of the people from Pokhara. Very funny, where does the blood run then, in pipe lines? Haa!
