After breakfast, you are transferred to the airport for flight to Pokhara. It's a 30 minute long scenic flight. Upon arrival at Pokhara airport, you are greeted by your local guide.
You will have time to settle into your room before your guide will take you on sightseeing.
First, we visit the Bindhyabasini Temple - the center of religious activity in the old bazaar. The temple is dedicated to the Goddess Bhagawati - a manifestation of Shakti.
Next, visit Devi's Falls, or Davi's Falls - an awesome waterfall where we can witness the waters of the lake cascading down and disappearing into the earth! Legend has it that a trekker, named David or Davis was washed away by the waters of the lake and disappeared down into an underground passage beneath the fall.
Nearby is the entrance to a nearly 3 miles long cave, called Gupteswar Gupha (cave). The cave holds a special importance to Hindus as a phallic symbol of Lord Shiva was found inside, when the cave was discovered first. Our next stop will be at the Tibetan Refugee village. We will visit the Tibetan monastery, a Tibetan hand-made carpet factory and school etc. in the village.
Finally, stop of the day will be at the International Mountain Museum. The museum has an interesting collection of historical high-altitude mountaineering equipment and its evolution over the decades, document and chronicle the past and present development of mountaineering activities in the world in general and to preserve the saga of the momentous feats in the history of mountaineering in the Himalayan peaks in particular.
The museum is situated just 0.5 km south from the Pokhara airport. The spot is rightly selected as we can enjoy the unique view of 3 massive mountain peaks; Dhaulagiri, Annapurna and Manaslu which are above 8000 meters. No place in the world offers us such a panoramic view. At the end of the tour, you will be dropped back off to your hotel in Pokhara, or you can choose to explore further or eat at the lakeside market on your own.
Overnight at the lodge.
