Day 1 : Sightseeing Tour of Pokhara Valley with Sarangkot Sunrise


Visit Sarangkot for Sunrise

You wake up early in the morning and head to Sarangkot. About 45 minutes' drive brings us to the viewpoint of Sarangkot at an elevation of 1592m, which is probably the most popular short excursion from Pokhara. The panoramic views include a glimpse of Annapurna South, Himchuli, Annapurna I, II, III, IV,  Dhaulagiri, Machhapuchre /Fishtail, Lamgung Himal, Manaslu, and many more including views of the beautiful Pokhara Valley and Phewa lake on another side. Sarangkot is one of the best Mountain View spots in the entire Pokhara reason. After the beautiful sunrise view, you will drive back to your hotel via the Bindhabasini temple for breakfast. 

Bindhabasini Temple

It lies in the center of an old bazaar. It is dedicated to Goddess Bhagwati Devi, It’s another manifestation of Shakti. The surrounding grounds of a temple offer a fine picnic and relaxing area. The temple is situated at the top of a small hill and can be accessed via a stone stepladder on the East and North East side of a temple.

The views of the Annapurna Massive from the North of the temple are magnificent while from the Southside of the temple you can witness the beautiful scenery of Pokhara city. 

Then we drive to your hotel for Breakfast.

Later in the day we visit:

Davis Falls

Locally known as Patale Chango, and in the southern flank of the Pokhara valley is where the stream flowing from Phewa Lake collapses and surges below the rock into a deep gorge, leaping through several potholes. The name of the waterfall, Davies Falls comes after a Swiss tourist named Davie who fell from the waterfall with an unexpected flood and disappeared. This one of the most visited places in Pokhara valley.

Gupteshwor Mahadev Cave

The admired Gupteshwor Mahadev Cave is situated 2 km from Pokhara airport. The entrance is right across from Davis Falls. The cave is rumored to be the longest cave in Nepal (2950 meters) and one of the biggest caves in entire South Asia. It has a few big hall-sized rooms area and some passages where you have to crawl on all fours. This cave holds special value to Hindus since the dark cave discovered with many shrines and a phallic symbol of Lord Shiva preserved here in the condition when it was discovered in the 16th century.

Seti River Gorge

Carved by the Seti-Gandaki River, the gorge is one of the natural wonders of Pokhara. The Gorge is about 100 meters deep from the ground. Mahendrapool and K.I. Singh bridge at Bagar provides a magnificent view of the river’s dreadful rush and the deep gorge made by the turbulent flow of white water.

Tibetan Refugee Camp
