09.00AM – 10.00 AM: The Fewa Lake
The Phewa Lake, the second largest lake in Nepal, adds to the enthralling beauty of Pokhara. The changing light of the sun on the Phewa Lake provides aesthetic calmness to the lovers of nature. On the eastern side of the lake, visitors can find a cluster of restaurants and pubs. Along with these attractions, boating, sailing, kayaking, canoeing, swimming, bird watching, fishing and angling are some of the activities which you can participate in at Phewa Lake. In the midst of the lake stands the Barahi Temple- a pagoda styled temple dedicated to Goddess Barahi.
10.00AM – 11.15 AM: Bindubasini Temple
Bindubasini Temple is the oldest religious shrine in Pokhara built in the 16th century. The main shrine of the temple is dedicated to the Goddess Bhagwati where Hindu worshippers flock to perform sacrifices, especially on Saturday. Mahendra Gupha and Chamere Gufa (Bats cave) are two other major, attractive natural sites (caves) reached after a 15 minutes drive from Bindubasini Temple.
11.15AM - 12.15PM: Seti GORGE
Seti Gorge is a wonder of nature that goes underground, vanishing from sight in many places along its route through the city. At various points the river is barely two meters wide and cuts a deep, narrow valley. A good spot for watching the river below is Narayansthan Bridge near the British camp or from Mahendra Pul, a small bridge at the center of the city.
12.15PM – 13.00 PM: The Old Bazaar
The Old Bazaar, 4 km away from Phewa Lake, is a traditional bazaar and a colorful gathering place for an ethnically diverse group of traders. The temples and monuments bear a close resemblance to the Newari architecture of Kathmandu Valley and retain much of its original charm. The old bazaar is also home to one of Pokhara’s most important shrines, the Brinduabasini Mandir.
13.00PM- 14.00Pm: Lunch
14.00 PM – 14.45PM: David's fall
David’s Fall is a fascinating waterfall located 2 km southwest of lakeside on the Siddhartha Highway. Also located very close to David’s Fall is Gupteswar Gupha, a mysteriously sacred cave that holds special value for Hindus since a phallic symbol of Lord Shiva is perfectly preserved here in the condition it was discovered in. Locally, it is also named as Gupteswar Mahadev.
