Pashupatinath is one of Nepal’s important Hindu Temple. The present pagoda style temple was constructed in 1696 A.D. The Pashupatinath Temple complex resembles a life-size collage of life: faith, generosity, poverty, life, death mingle here in an unceasing flow.

Once you land, you’ll check in at the hotel.
Once at Pokhara, you’ll go boating, visit Tal Barahi for Darshan, Davis Falls and Gupteshwor Mahadev Cave.
What better way to start a visit to a place referred to as the Lake City than to go boating? Boating is almost an unwritten law in Pokhara. From the expanse of the lake most of the nearby places are visible, so you can pick and plan visits. Boating becomes a pilgrimage if you go to Pokhara's most famous Hindu temple, the Barahi Mandir. It is an 18th century Vishnu temple, the god residing here in his boar avatar.

Local legend has it that this waterfall got its name from a Swiss tourist called David and his girlfriend, who unfortunately fell into the waters and drowned.Patale Chhango as it is called in Nepali is a spectacular waterfall marking the point where the Pardi Khola stream vanishes underground. Hearing the water plunging through makes it a more sensory experience.
The Gupteshwor Mahadev Cave is a subterranean spiritual center. There is a large stalagmite in the cave, revered as a natural Shiva Linga. There is also something for the atheist and agnostic. You can enter a tunnel behind the linga and reach a moist chamber near the roaring Davis Falls.
Return to the hotel for an overnight stay.
You’ll enjoy breakfast along the early morning drive to Sarangkot.
Sarangkot is like taking a step nearer to the mountains visible from Pokhara. Stretched out on the horizon are Dhaulagiri (8,167m), Manaslu (8,156 m), the iconic Machhapuchhare (6,997m), and numerous peaks of the Annapurna range.
Returning from sarangkot get ready to visit Bindhyabasini Temple.
Sitting on a small hill in Old Pokhara is the legendary Bindhyabasini Temple. This temple is where Goddess Durga has resided in the form of a saligram (fossil) since the 17th century. There are many ceremonies that occur daily at Bindhyabasini, the most common one being wedding ceremonies. As the temple is located 3,000 feet above sea level, you’ll also photograph breathtaking views of the Annapurna ranges.
