After breakfast, we head towards Pokhara, a peaceful town in the heart of the
mighty Himalayas. Pokhara is famous for its breathtaking views of the Anapurna
Range. Our drive takes us on a winding road that snakes through the lush green
Himalayan landscape. Check-in at the hotel upon arrival. We suggest that you
take time for a peaceful boat ride on Fewa Lake. Here you have many
opportunities to take short hikes and walks. Your guide can give you the
necessary information if you like to take some free time to do your own
exploring. Overnight at hotel.
Early this morning we hike up to Sarangkot for a spectacular sunrise view of the Annapurna massif. Later drive
back to Pokhara for a sightseeing tour visiting the dramatic Devi Falls
(also known as David’s Fall) which plunge into a sinkhole, Tibetan
settlements, Bindebashini temple (3000 Feet above sea level, this
pagoda style temple complex is dedicated to the goddess Durga,
guardian of Pokhara), KI Singh bridge (from where the Seti River is
visible) and the local market. Overnight at the hotel.
