Pakhora is the second largest city in Nepal. It is a beautiful drive, but unfortunately road conditions detract your attention from the prestine beauty around you.
We stopped for a nice lunch at the hill town resort of Bandipur.
We arrived late in the afternoon in Pakhora valley in the lake Fewa neighborhood. On a clear day the whole Anapurna range is visible from Pakhora mountains.
In the morning we were up at 3:30 to visit Sarangkoth Peak to view the sunrise over the Pakhora valley and the Annapurna range. Anapurna is the ninth tallest Peak in the world and Pakhora is the launching pad for all the treks to ABC (Anapurna Base Camp).
Unfortunately it was cloudy and rainy that morning but we still had some fabulous views!
After breakfast we went to the Mountain museum and Devi’s Fall.
In the early afternoon we visited the World Peace Pagoda, an absolutely peaceful and serene mountain structure.
We capped the day with another walk by the beautiful Fewa lake.
