Naturally Pokhara

A cool destination for summer (3 Night 4 Days)

Nature seems to have created Pokhara based on the winning design in a competition: a chain of mountains, a verdant valley, and a lake. But its origin is all about the destructive side of Nature. Pokhara was created centuries ago by a massive avalanche-triggered flood. Entire hills were razed to form a valley. Centuries later, the nightmare event has created a painter’s dream location. ‘At the touch of love,’ claimed Plato, ‘everyone becomes a poet.’ The same could happen to a person at the sight of Pokhara.

Pokhara is not all about sedentary activities or philosophy. A host of adrenaline-pumping activities have earned it the title of Nepal’s adventure capital. Thrill-seekers can soar in the skies by paragliding, rumble down churning rivers on a raft, or blaze downhill on a zip line. For an experience that is somewhere in between an artist’s languor-filled day and an adrenaline junkie’s minutes of exhilaration, Pokhara offers walks through forests and boating on the iconic Phewa Lake.

     

    Day 01 Arrival From Bhadrapur, transfer to flight to Pokhara

    Arrival From Bhadrapur, transfer to flight to Pokhara  Assistance at the airport upon arrival and Departure Flight to Pokhara. Transfer to Hotel. Half day sight-seeing of Pokhara and an hour-long boat ride on the Phewa Lake in the evening.

    Boating and Varahi Temple

    What better way to start a visit to a place referred to as the Lake City than to go boating? Boating is almost an unwritten law in Pokhara; however, failure to experience it is truly a missed opportunity. From the expanse of the lake most of the nearby places are visible, so you can pick and plan visits. Boating becomes a pilgrimage if you go to the Pokhara’s most famous Hindu temple, the Varahi Mandir. It is an 18th century Vishnu temple, the god residing here in his boar avatar. Lakeside: Embark on your little culinary and relaxing adventures at the Lakeside. After the hour long boat
    ride, you can take your pick on the restaurants that can literally be found in every nook and corner of the street. That’s not all. There are also shops that sell cultural trinkets, souvenirs and apparels that are authentic and unique to Nepal. If you feel overwhelmed, seek refuge in the many parks running parallel to the lake.

    Day 02 Full day pokhara sight seeing

    Full day pokhara sight seeing, overnight at hotel. Breakfast at hotel. Full day of Sight-seeing in Devis Fall, Gupteshwor  Mahadev cave, Old Pokhara and the Gurkha Museum.

    Devi’s Falls

    Local legend has it that this waterfall got its name from a Swiss tourist called David and his girlfriend, who unfortunately fell into the waters and drowned. Perhaps Devi was easier on the locals’ tongues than David; hence Devi’s Falls. Patale Chhango as it is called in Nepali is a spectacular waterfall marking the point where the Pardi Khola stream vanishes underground. Hearing the water plunging through makes it a more sensory experience.

    Gupteshwor Mahadev Cave

    The Gupteshwor Mahadev Cave is a subterranean spiritual center. There is a large stalagmite in the cave, revered as a natural Shiva linga. There is also something for the atheist and agnostic. By paying an additional 70 rupees on the entry ticket, you can enter a tunnel behind the linga and reach a moist chamber near the roaring Devi’s Falls.

    Old Pokhara

    A little pocket of nostalgia and Newari architecture, Old Pokhara offers a much-needed respite from the kerfuffle of Lakeside. This old part of town lies north of Mahendra Pul. A handful of Newari houses of exceptional brickwork remain. Another relic of the past is the 200-year-old Bhimsen Temple, a shrine dedicated to the Newari god of trade and commerce. A short walk from here is the Bindhya Basini Temple, where Durga has resided in the form of a saligram (fossil) since the 17th century.

    Gurkha Museum

    The gunfire might startle you, but it’s only a sound effect. It may be music to the Gurkha soldiers, the mere mention of
    whose names have roused terror in the opposing forces. The museum portrays the feats that the Gurkhas have achieved on the battlefields of the two World Wars down to the present day war in Afghanistan.

    Day 03 Full day pokhara sight seeingFull day pokhara sight seeing

    Full day pokhara sight seeing, overnight at hotel. Breakfast at hotel. Hike to the World Peace Pagoda and then visit the Bat Cave and Mahendra Gufa and then visit Tibetan Refugee Settlements

    World Peace Pagoda

    If you are up for a relaxing time coupled with the most stunning view of the Phewa Lake and the Annapurna Range, then the place to be is the World Peace Pagoda. The white stupa was built by Buddhist monks from Nipponzan Myohoji organization, and is one of the 80 that are found around the world.

    Bat Cave and Mahendra Gufa

    The bat cave us a deep, dark and damp place. And there are the eponymous bats clinging the ceiling. Panic may seize you if you struggle to crawl from the narrow chute that is the only exit of the cave. A similar environment awaits you at the Mahendra Gufa, which is much larger than the Bat Cave. Dare yourself to go further (with a guide) from the first 125 meters, beyond which there are no lights and the darkness thickens.

    Tibetean Refugee Camp
    You’ve read their stories in books, seen documentaries about their flight across the Himalayas, and heard tales of their guerilla battles against the Chinese Army. In Pokhara, you can finally meet and talk to the Khampas, the former Tibetan guerilla fighters. Beside the military history, the refugee settlements are also enclaves of Tibetan culture. Stepping into any of the three settlements in Pokhara can feel like being transported across the Himalayas to Tibet.
