The Sunday Someday weekly series features bucket list destinations and how to get there using miles and points.
Today’s Sunday Someday is Pokhara, Nepal.
Pokhara is 6 to 7 hour bus ride or 30 minute flight from Kathmandu.
Late September to late November offers the best weather, but it’s also peak season and the most expensive time to visit.
