There's much more to do: glide through the air with a parasailing or paragliding tour, contemplate the waterfront views at Phewa Tal (Fewa Lake), soothe aching muscles at some of the top local wellness centers, and stroll around Pandeli Park, Sarangkot.

Plan trip to Pokhara with our itinerary maker to find out where to go and what to do.
