Pokhara, Nepal's second-largest city after Kathmandu, is located 220 kilometers away by road and 30 minutes by air from the capital Kathmandu. Pokhara is a well-known and popular tourist destination in Nepal, if not the entire Himalayan region, and is situated in a lush valley surrounded by the natural beauty of the high Annapurna Himalaya, including the famous Machhapuchare Himal'Fish-Tail' that reflects on the tranquil Fewa and Begnas Lakes.

Pokhara is a lovely city full of natural wonders, whereas Kathmandu is known for its historical heritage sites, and Pokhara is known for its natural beauty lying in the laps of the Mid-West Himalayan ranges.  Pokhara is also the starting and ending point for a variety of adventure treks and mountaineering destinations, including a variety of adventure sports such as paragliding, ultra-light, zip-lining, white water rafting, and kayaking. Mountain biking can also be enjoyed in the scenic areas of Pokhara, with views of high snow-capped peaks. On the Scenic Pokhara Tour, there are several interesting places to visit and things to do.

Itinerary

We'll arrive in Kathmandu and conduct some sightseeing, as well as some shopping if you need anything for the trip.

Drive or take a lovely 30-minute flight to Pokhara, which is blessed with spectacular natural surroundings of rolling green hills and lakes in the shadow of the enormous Annapurna Himalaya with the majestic Machhapuchare "Fish Tail." When you arrive at Pokhara airport, take a short drive to your hotel along the tranquil and peaceful Phewa Lakeside, where you'll find most of the good hotels and resorts, as well as intriguing shopping districts with shops and restaurants of world grade.

Our guide takes you for a short drive to Sarankot, a magnificent observation hill with a stunning dawn across the chain of Himalayan peaks, and a famous place for paragliding, one of Pokhara's most popular adventure activities. Return to the hotel for breakfast after a wonderful experience; our next excursion is a short drive to Devi's Waterfall, which includes the Gupteshwor Mahadev grotto. After a short break for lunch, the tour proceeds to the International Mountain Museum, which was founded by the Mountaineering Association (NMA) on November 1, 1973. The foundation's primary goal was to document, record, and chronicle the past and present growth of mountaineering activities around the world in general, and to preserve the narrative of the great accomplishments of mountaineering in the Himalayan peaks in particular. On December 1, 1995, the foundation stone for IMM was set. IMM had a soft opening on May 29, 2002, and it was formally launched on February 5, 2004. Return to the hotel after an informative and entertaining experience, with time to peruse the local market in Pokhara's main town.

After breakfast, walk to Phewa Lake, then take a calm boat trip to Barahi Island Temple, a manifestation of Goddess Kali, and then spend an exciting time rowing north from Phewa Lake, where a couple hour climb leads uphill to Peace Stupa. Shanti means Peace and is a Buddhist Stupa located on a ridge with spectacular views of Pokhara valley and high snow-capped mountains. Under the leadership of Nichidatsu Fujii, a Buddhist head monk founder of Nipponzan-Myhji, this Buddhist pagoda, also known as Ananda hill, was built by a Japanese monk Nipponzan - Myhji Morioka Sonin with local supporters. From here, stroll downhill into the cool forest to our boat, paddle back to the shoreline, and walk back to your hotel, with the rest of the afternoon free to do as you like.
