As Nepal’s tourism capital, Pokhara offers an abundance of things to do and see. The city is surrounded by hills and also has a charming lake called Fewa Taal. Around this body of water, the Lakeside district boasts various shops, restaurants, cafes and enough tourist activities to offer something for everyone.
Hiking up to the World Peace Pagoda, also known as the Shanti Stupa, involves a relatively short hike (about 1.5 hours going uphill) but it rewards you with uninterrupted views of Fewa Lake and Himalayan mountain ranges.
To begin the hike, you will need to hire a boat driver to row you across the lake, but this adds to the fun of the adventure.
At the top of the hill where the Peace Pagoda is situated, there are a few restaurants and coffee shops where you can stop for a meal or drink before hiking back down. All in all, it can be done in half a day or less.
Sarangkot is a hill station at an altitude of about 1500m above sea level. It takes a few hours to walk all the way up there from Lakeside, but it offers panoramic views that can’t be found anywhere else. On a clear day, snow-capped Himalayan mountain peaks are visible as far as the eye can see, as well as a bird’s eye view of the lake and surrounding urban areas.
If hiking all day is not your idea of a fun activity, then the Annapurna Cable Car running from Lakeside to Sarangkot might be the right solution for you. This option will give you all of the stunning views, but you won’t have to work up a sweat.
Shiva Mandir Hike
The route to the Shiva Mandir starts the same way as the Peace Pagoda hike, except it requires another hour or two to reach the destination. The Shiva Mandir at Pumdikot hill station is the second highest Shiva statue in Nepal and it’s quite impressive to behold.
All in all, crossing the lake and hiking to and from this viewpoint takes up most of the day, but the giant Shiva temple and the views along the way make it all worthwhile!
