Phewa Lake and Barahi Temple
Phewa Lake lies at an altitude of 800m above water level. In the middle of the lake, there is Barahi Temple (the most important religious monument. It is a two-storeyed temple in pagoda style devoted to the boar manifestation of Ajima, the protector deity representing the feminine force Shakti. Mt. Machhapuchhare & Annapurna reflects in its serene water.
Seti River Gorges
Seti-Gandaki Gorges is one of the natural wonders of Pokhara. K.I. Singh bridge at Bagar, Mahendrapool & Prithivi highway Bridge near bus park provides an outstanding view of the river's dreadful rush. The flow of foam makes a deep gorge.
Locally known as Patale Chango, the southern flank of the Pokhara valley is where the stream flowing from Fewa Lake collapses and surges down the rock into a deep gorge, leaping through several potholes.
It lies north of the Pokhara valley. It is an outsized limestone cave, one of the stalagmites stalactite caves found in Nepal.
Gupteswar Cave is a sacred cave that lies 2 km from Pokhara airport. The doorway is across from Devi's fall, and the cave is nearly 3 km long. It has some big hall-size rooms and a few passages where you've got to crawl on high-low-jack. This cave holds specific value for Hindus since a phallic symbol of Lord Shiva is preserved the same way it got discovered.
World Peace Stupa
Recently built atop a hill overlooking Phewa Tal, the Stupa offers an excellent place to ascertain the sunset over Pokhara. It is often accessed by hiring a ship and rowing across the lake and climbing a sometimes leech-infested track, or by foot from the road that passes Devi Falls.
The perfect pre-trek warm-up is to head to Sarankot within the late afternoon (be prepared, it's steep), find yourselves a warm guest house before sunset, and go up the highest for sunset view and again for sunrise. You will not be disappointed. Spectacular views and an excellent thanks to getting a taste of what it wishes to be trekking.
Other places to go to in Pokhara are Barahi temple, situated within the middle of Phewa Lake, Pokhara Museum, Annapurna Museum, Bindhyabasini temple, and World Peace Pagoda.
