Trip PlanExpand all

We will begin our Pokhara day tour by picking up guests from the hotel early in the morning. We will go to the top of Sarangkot via private vehicle. Sarangkot is a popular hill located on the western side of Pokhara. It lies at an altitude of 1600m. Sarangkot is famous for the best sunrise view, so you will witness the best sunrise view of your life. The reflection of golden sunlight on mountain ranges like Annapurna Range, Machhapuchhre, Manasalu, and Dhaulagiri adds to the beauty of the sunrise. Sarangkot is getting popular day by day due to the best paragliding location in the world. You can enjoy the view of Pokhara Valley while appreciating its natural beauty. If you want to hike to Sarangkot it only takes 90 minutes to 1.5 hours. 

Return to the Hotel and stop by Bindyabasini Temple

We will descend to Pokhara Valley after enjoying the beautiful view of sunrise from the hill station. We will return to the hotel for a warm breakfast and then visit the holy temple, Bindhyabasini temple. It is a temple of Goddess Bhagwati, the incarnation of Kali. Bindhyabasini temple is considered one of the oldest temples in Pokhara. There are small temples of other gods and goddesses like Saraswati Mandir, Shiva Mandir, Hanuman Mandir, and Ganesha Mandir on the premises. Residents of Miruwa believed that Goddess Bindhyabasini was the replacement for the eighth child (Lord Krishna) of Devaki and Vasudeva. When Kansa exchanged Lord Krishna and herself, Goddess Bindhyabasini appeared as a Devi. 

Head towards the Peace Pagoda of Pokhara

The Peace Pagoda of Pokhara is one of the eighty Peace Pagodas of the World. It is located in the Anadu Hill, a former Pumdi Bhumdi Village Development Committee, in Pokhara. Located at a height of 1100 meters was built by Nipponzan-Myōhōji monk Morioka Sonin with local supporters under the guidance of Nichidatsu Fuji on 12 September 1973. We will take you to the stupa via vehicle where you can enjoy peace and silence among the chaos. 

Next Stop at Pumdikot Dada 

Pumdikot Danda is located 3.8 km far away from the Peace Pagoda. This hill is famous for hiking and is also a religious place. We will reach Pumdikot Dada within 10 minutes from Peace Pagoda. This hill features the second tallest statue of Lord Shiva after the Kailashnath Mahadev Statue where Hindu pilgrims from all around the globe pay their visit every year. There are many small shops where you can buy flowers and other necessary things required for worshipping. 

Heading towards Davi's Falls

Davis Falls is a waterfall that has attracted visitors from all around the world. You can see the real beauty of this waterfall if you pay a visit during the monsoon season. The water forms a tunnel after reaching the bottom and runs 100 feet below the ground level. The tunnel is approximately 500 feet deep. The waterfall is named Davis Fall because when a Swiss male-female couple went swimming the woman drowned in a pit because of the overflow on 31 July 1961. Her body was rescued three days later in the Phusre River. So, in memory of that female, her father wished to name it "David's Falls" after her daughter's name but changed it to Devi's Fall. In the Nepali language, it is called Patale Chhango which means Underworld’s waterfall. The roaring sound of the waterfall while hitting the bottom makes you stay far away from the waterfall. 

Into the Gupteswor Mahadev Cave & Explore the Phewa Taal 

Then, we will pay a visit to the Gupteswor Mahadev cave which is also known as “Bhalu Dulo.” It is the longest cave in Nepal because it extends up to a distance of 2000 meters. Its existence has been noticed since the 16th Century and the entrance for this cave was constructed in 1991 A.D. Visitors prefer this cave for listening to the thunder of Davis fall.

We will enter the lakeside area in the evening. You will worship in the Tal Barahi Temple by boating in the Phewa Lake. If you are interested in canoeing and Kayaking, we can arrange it for you.
