Sightseeing of Pokhara valley starts today after your breakfast at 8:30am. Your guide will pick you up from the hotel in a private tourist vehicle. We visit the following places today:

Phewa Lake and Barahi Temple: These are what Pokhara is most known for – a beautiful lake with mountain views at the backdrop and a temple that sits on an island on the lake. The temple is a two-storied pagoda style temple of Hindu Goddess. We take a boat from the shores and paddle to the temple. See the reflections of Mt. Machhapurchhre (Fishtail) and Annapurna on the lake.

Seti River Gorges: “Seti” translates to “white”. The gushing white waters of the river barges through a gorge making a turbulent and majestic flow. The gorge can be seen from K.I Singh Bridge, at Bagar, Mahendrapool, and Prithivi Highway bridges.

Davis Fall: Also known as Patale Chhango, it is a waterfall tremendously popular among both domestic and international tourists. The volume of water gushing through is really impressive, especially with the sun rays hitting the water flowing into a gorge.

Gupteswar Cave: It is not only a cave but also a path to the famous Hindu temple of Pokhara, Gupteshwor Mahadev Temple. Devotees flock to the cave to pay a visit to the temple. The cave is almost 300m long, and in some stretches of the cave, you need to crawl on all four.
