Hike to Peace Pagoda and enjoy a bird’s-eye view of Pokhara valley

Pokhara, with its grand Himalayan views and vast lakes dotted with colorful boats, is a beautiful destination. Lying in the popular Annapurna region, the city is a favorite stopover for trekkers beginning or ending their Annapurna adventures. Set beside the tranquil Phewa Lake (a protected Ramsar Site), the snowy Machhapuchre (Fishtail Peak) and Hiunchuli cover its skyline. Pretty farming villages and jade green hills skirt its outer edges. Enjoy amazing views of Annapurna Massif and Pokhara Valley by taking a short hike to Peace Pagoda or Shanti Stupa.  The impressive white pagoda, built by Japanese monks of Nipponzan Myohoji clan, sits atop a ridge overlooking the Pokhara valley.

Before hiking up to the Peace Pagoda, first you take a boat across Phewa Lake. Once you reach the opposite bank, get down next and start hiking. Take the trail leading to the Peace Stupa. The path goes through a thick forest filled with wildflowers and pine trees. The trail is quite steep and you may need to watch your step. It may take an hour or two (depending on your pace) to reach the top. Once you reach the top, enjoy a bird’s-eye view of the entire valley. If the weather is clear, you can capture stunning views of Annapurna Massif, Hiunchuli, Machhapuchre, and Dhaulagiri in your camera. Finally head down to the lakeside after soaking in the views.  Cross the Phewa Lake on a boat and return to your hotel.    If you are looking for a longer trek that allows you to visit the visit the surrounding villages you can book our Pokhara Naudanda Sarangkot Trek. You hike to the viewpoints of Naudanda and Sarangkot and walk past hillside settlements, savouring amazing views of the Himalayas. If you are thinking of an adrenaline packed holiday then our Nepal Multi-Activity Tour is the trip for you.

A wonderful day hike to Peace Pagoda

Pre-trip Info

Transportation
Value for Money

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.

Recommended by Friend.
Yes.
I chose this trip as I like nature walks and hiking. I had seen most of Pokhara's tourist attractions and I wanted to walk up the forested hill, on the opposite bank of Lake Phewa.
The view from the top, the boat ride and the hike up the forested hill. In fact, I would the whole tour was memorable.
Book this tour if you love nature walks and hiking. From the top you get a different perspective of the city.
