Day 6: Chitwan National Park - Pokhara

Today travel on the tourist bus 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. The local people believe it is sacred to the god Shiva and therefore is off limits to climbing. Upon arrival this afternoon, spend the rest of the day at leisure.

We then visit a Tibetan refugee camp and a local school and monastery, with the chance to pick up some souvenirs from small stalls and a carpet-weaving hall, before returning to our hotel.
