    If you are going to Pokhara, visit Phewa Lake. You can do boating there. Whilst boating there, you will have beautiful mountain views. Recommended to All

    On clear day from Sarangkot you can have awesome view of mountain range, better then from Fewa lake. Early morning is the best chance, but the skyline can change quite quickly. In April some days the sky was hazy even early morning I decided not to book tour o taxi for sun rise tour (taxi usually 2000-3000 NPR) and on the day I saw clear sky I just took the cable car for 1000 NPR (about 20-30 min walk from the lake side area. Unfortunately by the time I got to Sarangkot the clouds floated over the peaks. You can also rent a motor bike to go there or just walk up as part of warm up for the trek.

    We have enjoyed Poon Hill twice, as we reach Ghorepani early afternoon and still full of energy we decided to climb to the hill to see the trail as the next morning we would start at wee hours even we could already see the clouds covering the Hill. From lower Ghorepani it took as around 50 minutes as were stopping for the pics. From the upper part is about 10 minute shorter. Unfortunately we could not see the sunset or the view of Himalaya range, at least we could enjoy the serenity of the place without the crowd. The next day, early morning, at around 4:30 we started to climb up accompanied by drops of rain, thunders, lightnings and cloudy sky with hope that the weather can change. Some people gave up and return back. At the half way we paid 100 NPR. At the time we reached the top it stopped raining and the clouds started to disappear, the sky got clear. The tower and the platform was already busy but still at Covid time less people than at pre-Covid time in high season. The views were breathtaking and awesome. If you are cold or thirsty there is a small booth with tea, with a little but inflated prices.

    It is wort to climb up the hill to World Peace Stupa. World Peace Stupa was built as a symbol of peace, situated at the height of 1100 meters on the Anadu Hill. To get there was beatiful view you can use a taxi, local bus, take a boat over the lake and then clinb up or just walk towards southwest (direction to Devil fall) cross the bridge, follow the zig zag trail up to the top of forest where you come across monkeys, it takes about 45 minutes. At the top you can get refreshment, while sipping a drink you can enjoy the view on Pokhara and if not hazy day also Himalaya mountain range. The tranquil vibe of the site is relaxing and calming. Free entry.

    The International Mountain Museum is certainly an excellent place to learn about the Nepali culture with reference to the people, the fauna, the geography of the region, and much more. I found the exhibits about the wildlife, the history of the Nepalis people, the first Everest and other major mountain expeditions along withe the equipment used during their climbs very interesting and informative. We have come a long way in equipment and climbing gear since the early days climbing in the Himalayas. The museum is well maintained and is in the center of well kept grounds.

    View is good and place is very easily accessible. But charges to view just fall is quite high. Charges can be reduced and view can be improved.

    The Gurkha Memorial Museum's main theme has to do with the history behind the military efforts in Nepal. The Nepal Gurkha soldiers are part of the British Military for many years and it has been reported that the Gurkha soldiers are some of the fiercest fighters in battle. The museum has a collection of all sorts of historic Military items - guns, rifles, uniforms, the famous Gurka knives and many photographs of places where the Gurkha soldiers had served. Quite interesting history of this military force from the past to the present day.
    Note: The Museum has signs posted inside that says: "NO Photos Allowed". However, Photos outside the Museum building is OK.

    A beautiful small serene Hindu Temple for Durga Devi (known here as Bharahi ) is in the midst of a beautiful lake of clean water. Situated in the City of Pokhara, Nepal, the lake has great settings with the mountain-range in the background. There are coats , rowed by qualified persons to take you to the temple. There are kiosks which supply life jackets to the visitor for a nominal cost.
    The temple is , as in most of the places in Nepal, of Pagoda style. Reasonably big area with well grown trees , the temple presents a cool place to worship and relax.

    The most memorable trekking trip i have had. ABC is so rewarding in every aspect. I have done this now for the 2nd time. May be i will do it again someday. taking different routes every time allows different experiences. The view from Himalaya to ABC is surreal.

    Our guide took us to this temple on our way to Sarangkot. What a treat! This is the oldest Hindu temple in Pokhara. It is quite beautiful and the grounds are large so it does not feel crowded. If you are lucky, you may see a wedding party like we did! Worth a visit.

    It is a nice place where the tibetian refugees live in the area. So the area is full of lovely children and deliscious cheap momos and choweming. Everyday Puja is organized around 3 PM, but it was not in the day that we went, because of tibetian new year. The monks went to their families.

    You can not swim in the lake or at least as the water is dirty it is not recommend. You can hire a boat and go to the bottom of Peaceful Pagoda and climb up or aimlessly paddle around and on the clear day, usually in the morning, enjoy Himalaya mountain range.. The range is also visible from the lake bank. The lake is lined with many restaurant or just simple small stalls. Every evening you can watch sunset celebration.

    While we were in the area of the Devi Falls we decided to visit this attraction that was only a five minute walk further. The cave is tucked away on a street of souvenir stalls. The cave has been recently renovated and is certainly busy with tourists and locals alike. It is very commercialized and the day we visited very busy as it is a sacred site for Hindus. The circular stairs (probably 500 or more!) lead down to a cave that has been carved out of the limestone rock. There are some stalactites and stalagmites once you get to the bottom but be careful as the stairs become very wet and slippery from the water that drips continuously from the limestone.
