Cheapest and best Overlander camping in Nepal. Eco camping in a relaxing atmosphere
surrounded by beautiful nature. Many traditional restaurants and Nepali shops within
2 minutes walking distance and short drive or bus ride to Pokhara.
We had heard about a so-called Overlander Campsite just outside Pokhara and as we
hadn't used our tent since Indonesia it was about time it got aired out again. The
campsite is dead cheap to camp at - under $1 per person and had the hottest shower
and fastest wifi we have had in all of Nepal - all in a middle of a rice field! There
were no other bikers there at the time but a couple of cars that had come overland
from Europe. Handful Of Throttle

In town, the camping was defunct but there was a sign for overlander camping 6km
out of town. We’d thought that camping would make a nice change and decided to go
the extra distance. The road changed from tar to bumpy dirt. How far was this place?.......On
and on.......Through another village....we must have passed it.....ah a sign saying
another 1km. We bump along some more. Eric, the Swiss owner bounded out to meet us.
Wow, there were even other campers, a Unimog from Holland, and a Transalp bike from
Germany. The more I looked around the place, the more I warmed to it. There were
little touches that made it special, in camping terms. An urn for filtering water,
low powered lights, bright enough to find your way to loo in the night but not so
bright to keep you awake, a good hot shower, clean loo, a fire pit, tables and chairs,
a little shelter to cook under if it rains and power points to charge your camera.
It was no surprise that Eric had been an overlander himself, he clearly knew what
niceties make a campsite into a good campsite. If we couldn’t be bothered to cook,
we could eat with his family, for a fair price.
