Let us now take a look at the marvelous sight seeing in Pokhara-


Phewa Tal is one of the most remarkable spots that are engulfed by high white peaks as well as monkey filled forests. The crystal clear water out here is sure to leave you spellbound. All you need to do is hire a boat followed by rowing yourself across the lake.


The Begnas Lake is located at the outskirts of the town and is pretty peaceful, clean and quiet. There are a couple of hotels out here where you can plan your stay.


Rupa tal is the best suited example of remote lakes that is situated in Pokhara. However, it has limited access and this is the prime reason why it has been able to maintain its serenity and is still fresh when compared with other lakes. If you are a nature lover then you must visit this lake.


If you are in hunt of wild swan and lotus then the dipang tal is the best option at your hand. All you need is a fifteen minutes walk from Sisuwa, the city hub of Lekhnath municipality.


The devis falls is unusual, eerie and speactacular. This fall plunge into a cave and finally disappear into the earth.


The shanti stupa or more commonly the world peace pagoda was built nearly sixteen years ago on top of a hill overlooking Phewa lake. This is an ideal place from where you can take a look at the sunset as well as the mountains. You can go there by hiring a boat. However, you need to also climb up through the forest or may have to wall from the road which passes the Devils falls. Of late, there is also a provision for hiring a cab. Just ask the driver to follow the Chhorepatan road, this is a short cut route and will help you to save a good deal of money on your taxi fare.


Sarangkot is the best possible option for a pre trek warm up. Be it sunrise time or just before sunset, you are sure to enjoy this place. you may hire a motor cycle so as to reach this place. It is true that there road is a bit rough but then it is pretty traversable.
