Today travel by coach to spectacular Pokhara, gateway to the magnificent Annapurna Range, which consists of five mountains over 7200m including the Machhapuchare, which although falling short of 7000m, is one of the most extraordinary mountains due to its unique ‘fishtail’ peak. Upon arrival this afternoon, spend the rest of the day at leisure.
An early start as we drive to Sarangkot enjoying the sunrise views of the landscapes and mountains and observing local people, villages and farms. After breakfast we visit the thundering waterfall known as Devi’s falls where the Pardi River, which drains Phewa Lake, enters a grottoed channel and sinks underground in a sudden rush of foam and fury. There is some free time to participate in optional activities such as paragliding, mountain biking, cycling, boating and horse riding, or if you prefer why not unwind down by the lake.
We bid you a fond farewell with a coach transfer to the airport in Kathmandu (6-7 hours drive) intime for your later evening flight home.
