ItineraryThis is a typical itinerary for this productStop At: World Peace PagodaYour guide will meet you at your hotel lobby and transport you to the World Peace Pagoda in the comfort of a private vehicle. Upon reaching the pagoda after about a 30-minute drive, it's a 10-minute walk through staircases to reach the massive Buddhist stupa.Constructed by Buddhist monks from the Japanese Nipponzan Myohoji order, the monument reflects four prominent stages of the Buddha's life in four directions: where he was born in Lumbini, where he became enlightened in Bothgaya, where he taught most of his life time in Sarnath, and where he reached nirvana at Kushi Nagar. Reaching this place atop a hill overlooking the southern shore of Phewa Lake, learn about its design to inspire harmony. Besides being an impressive sight in itself, the shrine provides a great vantage point from which to see spectacular views of the Annapurna range and Pokhara. You will be then transferred back to your hotel by private vehicle.Duration: 3 hours
