Best in Pokhara, Nepal

World Peace Pagoda: A beautiful white stupa that was build on the top of a hill to honor Buddha and most of all, world Peace. The best is to trek up since you get to walk trough villages and rice fields. When you finishing visiting, have a tea or juice before heading back down. To go back to Pokhara you have some options: go down the same way you came up (about 1.5h), walk down 20 minutes and take a bus back to town, or walk down 20minutes and take a boat across the lake. 


Phewa Lake: you can do many water activities on the lake: rent a boat, a kayak, or a paddle board and venture out. If it is a hot day, take a swim! 

We rented bikes and cycled around the lake. However, beware! The road is bumpy. 

Sarangkot is located about 10km away from Pokhara. It is a small village where you can stay at a guesthouse or lodge. We stayed at Bhanjyang village lodges. The best part of staying here, is being able to wake up, walk to the private viewpoint and enjoy a cup of coffee or tea while admiring the sunrise and the mountains. 


And last but not least, pay yourself a treat! Hotel Glacier and Spa is right downtown by the lakeside. The rustic building has luxury rooms, a restaurant, a cafe, and sympathetic staff. It is the perfect place to treat yourself to comfort and relaxation before or after heading out on your trekking adventures.
