Pokhara Valley Sightseeing Tour in Nepal

Pokhara, Situated at an altitude of 827m from the sea level and 200km west of Kathmandu valley, the city is known as a center of adventure. This enchanting city has several beautiful lakes and offers stunning panoramic views of Himalayan peaks. The serenity of lakes and the magnificence of the Himalayas rising behind them create an ambience of peace and magic. So today the city has not only become the starting point for most popular trekking and rafting destinations but also a place to relax and enjoy the beauty of nature. Pokhara is a remarkable place of natural beauty. It is the starting point for treks to Jomsom and the Annapurna group. People coming from the Kathmandu Valley notice the much cleaner air and pleasant climate. Lake Phewa, with its cluster of lakeside hotels, restaurants and shops, is ideal for seekers after relaxation and for day excursions. The climate of Pokhara is slightly warmer than Kathmandu with daytime temperature hovering around 15 degrees Celsius in winter and 35 degrees in summer. The monsoon season which lasts from mid-June to mid-September is very wet; in fact Pokhara records the highest rainfall in the country. Best time to visit is between October and April.

Davi’s Fall; Locally known as Patale Chhango (Hell’s Fall), Devi’s fall (also known as Devin’s or David’s) is an awesome waterfall lying about 2 km south-west of Pokhara airport on the highway to Tansen. An interesting modern legend says that a foreigner named David was skinny dipping in the Pardi Khola (river) when the floodgates of the dam were opened, sweeping him into an underground passage beneath the fall, never to be seen again.
Gupteshwar Cave; Gupteshwar Cave or Gupreswar Gupha, considered sacrosanct by the locals, is 2 km from Pokhara airport. The 3km long cave has some large hall-like rooms and some passages where one is forced to crawl. A Shivalinga, phallic symbol if Hindu Lord Shiva, is preserved in the cave.
Seti; An amazing aspect of Pokhara is the vanishing river, Seti, which goes underground and disappears in many places along its route through the city. At various points Seti is barely 2 m wide but its depth reaches an astonishing 20 m! A good spot for watching the river is Mahendra Pul at Bhimsen Chowk, a bridge near the old Mission Hospital. Here the river can be seen in all its ferocity gushing down the deep gorge that it has carved over millennia.
Begnas Lake; the second largest lake of Pokhara Valley, is 13 km away from Pokhara. The lake is a nice destination for the tourists who want to pass some time in seclusion. They can indulge in activities like boating and fishing. Nearby jungle is the residence of more than 150 species of birds. Water fowls can be observed from the northern part of the lake.
The Phewa Lake; majestic in stretch and beauty, is the second largest lake of Nepal. Foremost attraction in the lake is the pagoda style temple which holds the shrine of Barahi or Water Goddess. Another attraction is the amazing image of Mt. Machhapuchhre and Annapurna in the clear water of the lake. One is advised to view the south-eastern side of Phewa Lake for it has the best views. Tourists can also indulge in activities like fishing and canoeing. Several varities of fish can be found in the lake. Nearby forest is the residence of numerous animals and birds.
Barahi Temple; This is the most important religious monument in Pokhara. Built almost in the middle of Phewa Lake, the two storied pagoda is dedicated to the boar manifestation of Ajima, the protector’s deity representing the female force Shakti. Devotees can be seen, especially on Saturdays, carrying male animals and fowl across the lake to be sacrificed to the deity.

Day 03: Today our tour guide introduces as following places for sightseeing trip in Pokhara Valley by private car; Stay overnight at Hotel.

International Mountain Museum; The newest cultural offering in Pokhara, the International Mountain Museum is devoted to the mountains of Nepal and the mountaineers who climbed them. Inside you can see 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. Many people in the world may not know much about the small country called Nepal, but they certainly know about this peak, the tallest in the world, called Mount Everest. Not only this highest peak, but also other 8 of the 14 peaks above the height of eight thousand meters in the world stand tall in Himalayan range of Nepal. The Himalaya is the source of water resources for billions of people living in the world. Flora and fauna in the Himalayan range is the natural habitat for the thousands of known and unknown species that contribute in maintaining and restructuring the ecosystems of our world, day and night. The little surfaced cultural values of the mountain people, geological mysteries buried underneath; nature’s serene beauty- wonders on its rock- hard and melting surfaces- make the Nepalese proud and people of the world an epicenter for their explorations. Mountains and mountaineering have a history of their own. Without preserving it, it will not be long before all the records and evidences will be lost forever. Nepal Mountaineering Association (NMA), established on 1 Nov 1973, initiated the establishment of International Mountain Museum (IMM) in Pokhara. The basic objective for its establishment was made to record, document and chronicle the past and present development of mountaineering activities in the world in general and to preserve the saga of the momentous feats in the history of mountaineering in the Himalayan peaks in particular. The foundation stone of IMM was laid on 1 Dec, 1995. The soft opening of IMM took place on 29 May, 2002 where it was officially opened on 5 Feb, 2004. Nepal's eight thousand meter high peaks records names of thousands of successful summiteers until now but its history is very young. Mountaineers M. Herzog and Louis Lachenal scaled up Annapurna on 3 June, 1950 and since then the records follow. Himalayan range of Nepal is not important to the summiteers record holders only but also to the geologists, environmentalists and sociologists as it harbors innumerable mysteries and facts the scientists and geologists are striving hard to dig out. And all its values and mysteries are showcased in the one and only Mountain Museum in the world - the International Mountain Museum, right at the footsteps of the Himalayan range, in Pokhara, Nepal. With an objective of maintaining systematic records of the successful eight thousanders, geographic flora and fauna and human activities in the range, the International mountain Museum has been established at the foot step of fishtail peak and gate way to the mountain region. The shape of the museum roof itself resembles mountain skyline to any visitor before entering the museum main gate.
World Peace pagoda; The pagoda is a massive Buddhist stupa and is situated on top of a hill on the southern shore of Phewa lake. Besides being an impressive sight in itself, the shrine is a great vantage point which offers spectacular views of the Annapurna range and Pokhara city. You can get there by crossing the lake by boat and then hiking up the hill.
Himalayan Views; The magnificent Annapurna panorama that’s visible on the northern skyline of Pokhara is quite incredible. The main peaks are Annapurna I to IV and the beautiful Machhapuchhare (or Fishtail Mountaian, so named after its twin peaks). Besides these, you can also see the Himchuli, Varahashikhar, Gangapurna and other peaks. The mountains will probably be hidden in the clouds between April and September. A nice evening on the banks of Fewa Lake with the mountain range as the backdrop is what Pokhara is really about!

Day 04: Today our tour guide introduces as following places for sightseeing trip in Pokhara Valley by private car; Stay overnight at Hotel.
Bindabasini Temple; this is the center of religious activity in the old bazaar. It is dedicated to goddess Bhagwati, yet another manifestation of shakti. Worshippers flock here to perform sacrifices, and especially on Saturdays the park like grounds take on a festive fair.
Sarangkot; Several routes lead to the top of Sarangkot, a summit on the long mountain ridge skirting the north side of Lake Phewa. One of the best paths starts from near the Bindya Basini Temple; a sign indicates the road. Most taxis go only half way, as far as the end of the good road. From there it is about an hour's walk to the summit which is planted with young trees. There are several small inexpensive hotels here suitable for a night's stay. The climber must make an early ascent to see the sunrise and only in the early morning is the air clear. From above here there is a magnificent view of the Himalayan peaks and of all Pokhara which is very impressive at night.
Mahendra Cave; The Mahendra Cave or Chamero Odhaar (Bat Cave) is situated a kilometer north of Batulechaur. The exact size of the cave is a matter of dispute. Local people claim a Swiss geologist explored for two days without discovering any end. The electric lighting is limited and weak so a torch is useful Most of the stalactites have been stolen by souvenir hunters. Only an eerie cavern full of bats remains.
Annapurna Region; The Annapurna region is a very popular area for hiking and treks. Included in this region is the incredibly popular Annapurna Circuit, a two to three week trek that leads through high elevations offering beautiful views and outstanding scenery. The Annapurna mountain range takes in some of Nepal's highest peaks, including Annapurna I. While hiking is popular the area is also a challenging and enticing landscape for climbers who come here to tackle the mountains. Most visitors heading into the Annapurna region depart from the city of Pokhara.
