For stunning Himalayan views, hire a canoe and row across Pokhara's Phewa Lake before sunrise. There are usually plenty of
eager locals at the boats docks who are more than willing to row you around the lake and position your canoe in just the right picture-taking spot. The reflections in this mirror-like lake are spectacular and only available in the morning. Plus, sunrise may be the only time of day you'll be able to see the mountains before the clouds roll in. So, set your alarm and drag yourself out of bed to see the Himalayas light up in the rising sun. Afterwards, reward yourself with a very delicious plate of Eggs Benedict and coffee at the very strategically located Mike's Breakfast, beautiful lake views included.
