No place in the world offer such views of the Nepalese Matterhorn,Machhapuchhre and Annapurna from such close distance.The reflection of snowcapped high mountains of Annapurna range and Fishtail one the surface water of the Phewa Lake creates unprecedented secenery for all the visitors.

Sunrise from sarankot

The view of the Annapurna Himalaya from Sarangkot (foreigner/Nepali Rs 25/10) is almost a religious experience. From here, you can see a panoramic sweep of Himalayan peaks, from Dhaulagiri (8167m) in the west to the perfect pyramid that is Machhapuchhare (6997m) and the rounded peak of Annapurna II (7937m) in the east. Most people come here at dawn or dusk, when the sun picks out the peaks in brilliant colours.
The main village is just below the ridge, but a set of steps leads uphill to a dramatic viewpoint in the ruins of an ancient kot (hill fort). It is currently occupied by the army, but photography is fine, as long as you don't take pictures of the soldiers.There's another ruined fort at Kaskikot (1788m), a one-hour walk west of Sarangkot along the ridge road, with similarly jaw-dropping views.

Bindababasini Temple

Locally known as Bindhyabasini Mandir, this temple dedicated to the Hindu goddess Durga (manifested as Bhagwati, a blood-thirsty aspect of the goddess) is located near the busy Old Bazaar of Pokhara. The white pagoda-styled building at some 3000 feet above sea level is of great religious importance to Hindus living in Pokhara. People throng to this temple daily and also offer sacrifices of animals. One may also get to witness a Hindu wedding ceremony taking place in the temple premises.

Mahindra cave

Mahindra cave is a large limestone cave, locally known as the House of Bats, is another natural wonder of Pokhara. The Pokhara Museum is an ethnic mosaic of western Nepal. It is located between the bus stop and Mahindra Pul. The lifestyles and history of ethnic groups such as the Gurungs, Thakalis and the Tharus are attractively displayed through models, photographs and artifacts in this museum. The Annapurna Regional Museum, also known as the Natural History Museum is another interesting visit in Pokhara. It has an exceptional collection of butterflies, insects, birds and models of wildlife that exist in the area. Other popular and touristic places in Pokhara includes: the old bazaar, the new bazaar & its surrounding areas, Sarangkot- an ideal location for magnificent Himalayan views.

Pokhara is also the starting and finishing point for some of the most popular treks including the Annapurna Circuit and the Jomsom Trek. It also offers a number of short treks. Pokhara is the only city in Nepal from where you can observe various Himalayan peaks including the Annapurna Himalayan Range. Some of the famed mountains that can be observed from Pokhara include Mt. Machhapuchre, Mt. Dhaulagiri, Mt. Annapurna, Mt. Hinchuli etc. There are more then five caves within the city; some of the most popular includes Mahindra cave, Bat cave, Kali Khola cave, Shiva cave etc. Pokhara has several rivers flowing through itself.

Bat's Cave

Be prepared to get dirty. There's a lot of damp soil (I keep telling myself it's damp soil, but there are 10,000 bats in that cave, so you do the math) and you'll get dirty. It's REALLY amazing to suddenly look up and realize that the ceiling of this cave is alive. There are literally THOUSANDS of bats clinging to the ceiling. Take all the pictures you want, it won't wake them up. The climb down into the cave itself isn't bad at all, but there's a little soda stand when you come out, in case you're thirsty.

Gurkha Memorical Museum

The Museum was founded in 1994 at a temporary site in Kathmandu.  In 2004 it was leased land immediately outside the British Gurkha Camp in Pokhara by the UK MoD. The Museum first opened to visitors in 2005 and since then two further floors of galleries have been opened. In 2007/08 it had nearly 9,500 visitors and in 2008/09 the total jumped to over 15,000. It has now become one of the major attractions for visitors to Pokhara both from abroad and within Nepal.

The second storey galleries are dedicated to the Gurkha rifle regiments. The section for 6 GR lacks a number of items which they would like to display. In particular, they have asked for a Cross Belt, a Sam Browne belt and a Gurkha Hat which we hope to acquire from within Nepal. In addition, they add “if there is any member who has any old unwanted photographs then we would be more than pleased to keep them. We usually scan them and print to regular size to display while the original is kept wrapped by acid-free paper in a dark cupboard to maintain its quality.”

Items may be sent by BFPO post to Nepal. However, to avoid the museum incurring local customs charges (even on old items), BFPO parcels need a pre-authorisation. This can be arranged by Brian O’Bree; contact him on This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it . With an authorisation parcels can then be sent to the Chairman of the Museum using the following address: Major Yambahadur Gurung, AWC Bagmati, British Gurkhas Kathmandu, BFPO 4.

Alternatively, should you wish to make a monetary donation to the Museum, no matter how small, please send a cheque. Cheques normally take about 4 weeks to clear but the Museum gets full value without any charges. Make it payable to ‘The Gurkha Memorial Trust’ and send to Major Yambahadur Gurung at the above address, having obtained pre-authorisation as above, or send direct to him at PO Box 8975 EPC 4043, Bansbari, Kathmandu, Nepal.And, if you happen to find yourself in Pokhara, do please visit the Museum!

Annapurna Regional Museum

Seti Gorge

It is a mysterious wonder of Pokhara,Oreiginated from the Machhapuchhre glacier,Seti (which means white in Nepal) River runs through the main city area in about 40meters depth. The river providesa perfect views ofits dreadful rush before it disappears at Bagar into a deep gorge.The gorge is visible from the bridge in the city,K.I Singh Bridge,northwest end of the city,Mahendra pool,Ramghat,and prithviChowak area.The roaring Seti River passes right through Pokhara, but you won't see it unless you go looking. The river has carved a deep, narrow gorge through the middle of town, turning the water milky white in the process. At points, the gorge is less than a metre across and the river gushes by more than 50m below street level. The best place to catch a glimpse of the Seti River is the park near the KI Singh Bridge, just north of old Pokhara on the road to Batulechaur.If you peer down through the darkness, you can just see the water churning through the gorge. Nearby is a small Buddhist gompa with friendly novice monks.
