World Peace Pagoda, Pokhara Reviews
To get to the WPP, we rented a pedal boat from the lakeside, crossed to the other side, then hiked up on a clear trail. Entrance to the pagoda was free, it's a beautiful area with a great view on the lake from one side, and the Himalayas from the other. It was relatively quiet, no souvenir stands everywhere you look, clean and well maintained. There's a little garden area with benches where you can rest after the hike, washrooms, you'll even come across a small restaurant on your hike. It's a great way to fill half a day, very highly recommended.
You can get the view of this holy place while staying at Pokhara, no matter where you stay at Pokhara. This place stands top of a mountain. You'll also get the full view of Pokhara city from this place. Taxi may take Rs. 1500 as up-down fare. In my opinion, this holy place will give you the opportunity to redefine your thinking and of course, you'll feel the inner pease.
After boating from the lakeside, we spent an hour hiking up to the World Peace Pagoda. Along the way you may find nice little cafes to have tea and coffee. The view from the top is definitely stunning, and the Pagoda truly inspires inner peace.
You can hike up to there or get a car and reach there. Holy place for Buddhists. For tourists, it is a nice structure to see and as well as this place have great view of Pokhara valley. However, it has hundreds and hundreds of stairs/steps. So not suitable for elderly persons.
45 minutes of journey through stairs is worth it and this place is as beautiful as you expect it to be. Gives you a really beautiful view of the entire Pokhara and mountains beyond. Clean and peaceful. Has many good options for meals and coffee as well.
