I really enjoyed my hike to Peace Pagoda. The early morning boat ride across the still waters of Phewa Lake was beautiful. The hike which was more like a nature walk, as we passed through a thickly wooded area filled with birds and butterflies fluttering around. Manoj, my guide, was funny, friendly and knowledgeable. He regaled me with anecdotes and local legends as we made the steep hike to the pagoda.
The view from the top was astounding. We were just a few hundred metres above the city, yet the views were just awesome. We could see the mountains, the lake and the whole hills and the valley stretching. The sight was breathtaking. This was a beautiful hike and I enjoyed the company of my guide. I shall book this same tour again with Third Rock Adventures, if I were to visit Pokhara again.
