Boudhnath Stupa: Listed in the UNESCO World Heritage list, this enormous stupa where thousands of pilgrims gather daily to make a ritual circumnavigation of the dome, beneath the watchful eyes of the Buddha, which gaze out from the gilded central tower. This is one of the few places in the world where %Tibetan Buddhist culture is accessible and unfetered, and the lanes around the stupa are crammed with monasteries and the surrounding is a paraphernalia for Buddhist life.

Kathmandu’s Durbar Square: Is one of three royal palace squares in the Kathmandu Valley. This site was the royal residence until the 19th century where important ceremonies, such as the coronation of the Nepalese monarch use to take place.

Swoyambhunath Temple: This Buddhist Stupa, said to be 2000 years old is a perfect architecture of gilded spire and white washed dome located under thousands of fluttering prayer flags. From the spire, four faces of Buddha stare out across the valley in the cardinal directions. The entire structure is symbolic.

After viewing the ethereal lightshow in the mountains, you can go for paragliding adventure (optional).

Phewa Lake is a semi natural freshwater lake at an altitude of 742m located in the south of the Pokhara. The Annapurna range on the north is only about 28 km (linear distance) away from the lake, and the lake is famous for the reflection of mount Machhapuchhre and other mountain peaks of the Annapurna and Dhaulagiri ranges on its surface.The Barahi Temple is situated on an island in the lake and thick forest lies on the adjoining southern slopes of the lake.

Davi's fall: Locally known as Patale Chhango is an awesome waterfall lying about 2 km south-west of Pokhara airport on the highway to Tansen. The water that feeds the Davi’s Fall comes from the Phewa Lake, which follows a rocky stream to eventually rush down the waterfall and disappear. The passages that run under the ground are connected to the hole below the waterfall.

The best time to view this spectacular sight is during the monsoon season when there is a high rainfall and the summer season. An interesting modern legend says that a foreigner named David was dipping in the Pardi Khola (river) when the floodgates of the dam were opened, sweeping him into an underground passage beneath the fall, never to be seen again.
