Set Your Alarm in Pokhara!
Be prepared for some early mornings in Pokhara! Set your alarm, grab your coffee and camera and witness some of the most spectacular sunrises you will ever see. One of the best sunrises in Pokhara can be witnessed at the World Peace Pagoda (Shanti Stupa), on a hill overlooking Phewa Lake and the Annapurna Mountains. You can either hike up to the World Peace Pagoda after canoeing across Phewa Lake or you can drive up to within 15 minutes walk of the Pagoda. A taxi, which is probably the more reasonable option for sunrise, can be easily arranged the day before from a driver on the street or through your hotel. No matter how you make it up there, you'll be rewarded with a spectacular sight!
