Tour Highlights

Fewa Lake

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.

David's Fall

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 PhardiKhola. Since then the waterfall is named as Davids fall. The waterfall looks stunning and is a centre of attraction to many tourists visiting Pokhara.

Gupteshwor Temple

Our destination next is a mysterious cave that lies near the stunning Davids 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.
