Nepal has been the dreamland of the tourists for a long time. Nepal invites, welcomes, charms and bewilders the visitors. The pattern of religion gives the country a unique status in the world. Almost all the important religious sects of the world are found in Nepal, however the majority of the population believes in Hinduism and the conglomeration of the two religious, Hinduism and Buddhism serve as a unique example of tolerance and brotherhood. Pokhara city tour is among one of the must visit places during our lifetime.
Pokhara valley (850m.) lies in 200 Km west of Kathmandu valley. The valley is the most popular destination in Nepal after Kathmandu. It is the second biggest city of Nepal where around 134000 inhabitants live. This city became the most interesting especially when explorers found that it is the only valley in the world from where one can see snow capped mountains higher than 8000m. From below 1000 m. These mountains lie in about 25 to 35 km. Arial distance. This valley is the most famous trekking starting gateway for world famous trekking areas such as to Fishtail, Annapurna and Dhaulagiri area. More than 65% of the total trekkers of Nepal trek in Annapurna region. It is only 35 minutes flight and 6 hours drive from the capital city Kathmandu. There are around 25 flights and several deluxe tourist bus services daily. There are hundreds of tourist standard hotels including non star to five star levels. All kinds of tourist facilities such as, foreign currency exchange, ACAP entry permit, visa extension, flight ticket reconfirmation etc. are available in this multi -cultural city. This city popularly known as “City of Tourism” is absolutely free from any type of pollution.
Pokhara city tour of 6-8 hours starts at around 8 a.m. in the morning after your breakfast. Your guide will pick you up at the hotel and escort you to the sightseeing places in Pokhara. We will visit Fewa Lake, David’s falls, Gupteshwor temple and International Mountaineering museum respectively.
A complimentary name that comes in to our mind as we remember the picturesque Pokhara city is the beautiful Fewa Lake. Adorned with colorful boats, coffee shops and shops stalled with books and accessories; Fewa lake is an attractive and pleasing place to spend your time in. The beautiful views of Annapurna massif on a clear day and the glimpse of Mt. Fishtail in the undisturbed water of the lake makes the lakeside truly fascinating. You can enjoy boating on the Fewa Lake and visit a temple placed in between the lake known as Barahi temple.
Moving ahead, we visit a popular waterfall that lies approximately 2 kilometres south west of Pokhara on a highway that takes us to Tansen. In past, a foreigner named David had accidently fallen into an underground passage beneath the while he was enjoying swimming in Phardi Khola. Since then the waterfall is named as David’s fall. The waterfall looks stunning and is a centre of attraction to many tourists visiting Pokhara.
Our destination next is a mysterious cave that lies near the stunning David’s fall. The cave is mysterious in sense it preserves a phallic form of Lord Shiva called Shivalinga and holds a high value amongst the Hindu pilgrims. As the Shivalinga li in the cave, it is popularly known as Gupteshwor temple and the cave is known as Gupteshwor Gupha. Many Hindu pilgrims around the world visit this place with high importance.
International Mountaineering Museum
International Mountaineering Museum is an alluring museum placed in a gateway to the trekking trail that leads us to the Annapurna region of Nepal. The record of all successful trekkers who attempted the climb of mountains that rise above eight thousand are listed in the museum. It also keeps record of all the major human activities inside the Annapurna region and maintains a record of unique flora and fauna seen inside Annapurna Conservation. Lying on the base of Mt. Macchapuchhre, the museum is uniquely designed. The museum is built in the shape of a mountain. The roof of the museum resembles with the peak of the mountains.
After visiting the international mountaineering museum, we conclude our Pokhara City Tours. You will be dropped back to our hotel. Hope you had a good time with us.
