We started our second day with an incredible view of Nepal. We went to the small hilltop of Sarangkot that contains a breathtaking view of the sunrise, valleys, the Annapurna range, and Pokhara.
Actually, we are quite down when the sun didn’t rise to its full peak. Though it was expected because we visited during this monsoon season which rain was likely predictable. But still, the view was perfect and I amazingly praise God for his creation.
The best thing happened when the sky was cleared, this magnificent view appeared. A well worth effort of getting up in the morning.
Annapurna Mountain Range
Boating in Fewa Lake was a serene experience for me. Pokhara has bestowed with many lakes with the background of Annapurna range. We have one hour spent being rowed by the local boatman in the lakes, and we cannot hide our admiration for the clear blue lake surrounded by green forested hill and with flowers.
Boating is the great way to relax and toast yourself into nature. This is also a great scenery for lovers. The cost is affordable, NPR 500 per boat for an hour. To book a hotel in Pokhara, make it sure to be near in the lake side, for you to enjoy it more.
Bindhya Basini Temple (Hindu Temple)
This temple is located on a hill top near the old bazaar of Pokhara. According to the local belief fulfill the wishes of the devotees who come here and pray to the Goddess.
Before you took a picture with the locals, you must ask a permission. They are very friendly and they wouldn’t say NO.
The location is peaceful and it shows an excellent view of the town.
Seti River Gorge (The Holy River)
This milky white water was quite a sight to behold. We were told it’s a holy water.
Aside from this, there was nothing much to see.
International Mountain Museum
This museum is dedicated to the mountains of Nepal especially for the devoted Mountaineers who climbed them, lost their lives there and call them their home. If you are fond of history, culture, and geology, this is also the best place for you to visit.
They also offered a 30 minutes show about the history, the past and present development of mountaineering activities which will inspire you, I have wished I could be a Mountaineer in my next life too. This museum is a great way to preserve everything before the bygone will be lost forever.
They have also a handmade Mt. Everest outside the museum. You can climb too if you want, just feel it!
