We begin our full day sightseeing tour early in the morning and pick you up from hotel around 4:30 AM. After a short taxi drive (around 30 minutes) and a short hike (around 30 minutes) we arrive on the top of Sarangkot Hill (1.530 m) and enjoy truly breath-taking sunrise. From Sarangkot Hill we have a wonderful view on Dhaulagiri (8.167 m), Annapurna 1 (8.091 m) and Machhapuchhre Himal (6.997 m) shining in the morning sun.
On the way back from Sarangkot Hill to your hotel for breakfast we visit the Bindhyabasini Temple. This famous Hindu temple is devoted to Druga, Pokhara’s protector goddess. From that place, we have a magnificent view over the city and the peaks of Annapurna Range.
After breakfast in your hotel we continue our sightseeing tour and visit the Old Bazar. Located around 4km from Lakeside, it is a pleasant place with shops selling everything. We will take a stroll around the stores and enjoy bargaining with the locals!
Next stop on our sightseeing tour is Seti Roaring Gorge. Seti River passes through the city of Pokhara, but it is not easy to find it. It has carved a deep, narrow gorge through the middle of town, turning the water milky white in the process. The best place to catch a glimpse of the Seti River is the park north of Old Pokhara near the Gurkha Museum.
Afterwards we head towards the International Mountain Museum. This museum is dedicated to the mountains of Nepal, the climbers and generally to the people of Nepal. The exhibition shows original gear from many of the first Himalayan ascents, as well as displays on the history, culture, geology, and flora and fauna of the Himalaya.
After lunch in a nice restaurant in Lakeside we continue our trip by boot on the Phewa Lake and visit the Barahi Temple. The offshore shrine is built on a small island in mid-eastern part of the lake.
The next point of our tour is the Devi’s Fall, where the cascading waters of the Pardi Khola River disappear into and underground gorge and reappear a half kilometre away next to the Gopteswar Ma
Afterwards we visit Tibetan Refugee Camp where a group of Tibetan refugees have been living in Nepal. We will visit Tibetan monastery, hand-made carpet factory, schools etc. in this community.
The last stop of our tour is the World Peace Pagoda, a Buddhist monument, one of many similar built around the world to promote world peace. The Stupa is situated at the height of 1.100 m. From the top of the Ananda Hill we have a perfect view on the Himalayan Range, Phewa Lake and Pokhara city in the sunset light
