Hotel The Kantipur - INTRODUCTION
Kantipur is the poetic name of ancient Kathmandu the capital city of Nepal. Now, this poetic essence although disappearing in Kathmandu, has finally materialized in Pokhara 200 km all the way west of Kathmandu along with the combination of beauty, comfort and taste. That is in the class from of an exotic place to relax and enjoy delicious cuisine amidst the magnificent views of the most beautiful Himalaya "Fish Tail" of Annapurna range reflecting itself within the PHEWA LAKE. The hotel expertise started a decade ago from Kathmandu, promises to provide very special services which, we believe, will meet your every expectation required to make your stay memorable in the natural bowl of Pokhara Valley.
Kantipur, under the Europe-trained personnel, extends its typically Nepali hospitality in Kantipur Restaurant for varieties of savoury cuisine and beverage in an ambience of home away from home.
Basically, there are two modes of access to the Hotel from Kathmandu 18-25 mins by air and 4-5 hours by land. Besides the RNAC, there are a number of privately owned Airlines operating between Kathmandu and Pokhara. As for journey by land there are very well managed Tourist Bus services which take about 8 hours to reach Pokhara. A rented car can also be had which takes maximum 6 hours. The land journey, major part being reverine, is one of the most picturesque drives. While a rented car takes you direct to the hotel premises.
The most stunning and magnificent site of Pokhra is the spectacular panorama of the Annapurna range that forms its backdrop. The Annapurna stretches from west to east and includes Annapurna I to Annapurna IV in its massif. Apart from that it also includes the Annapurna South peak. Although the highest among them is Annapurna I that stands 8,091 meters above the sea, it is Machhapuchhre Peak, which dominates all others in its vicinity.
Boastfully levitating in the skyline, the fishtailed pinnacle is the archetypal snow-capped, needlepointed mountain. Nevertheless, none can get you same experience as a clear weather Mountain flight. The one by the Everest Air is the best among the available option.
