Trip Indroduction

Peace Stupa Day Hike is always a good idea for your vacation in Nepal because it leaves you speechless, then turns you into a storyteller. Peace stupa is also known locally as the ‘Bishwa Shanti Stupa’ or ‘World Peace Pagoda’.  The environment is peaceful up here and visitors are expected to maintain the silence. The Peace stupa is atop a hill above the Phewa lake of Pokhara. The stupa is surrounded by forests, Raniban, and a magnificent view of the Pokhara city and great mountain ranges at a distance.  People often come here to get the view of the sunrise over the snow-capped mountain ranges. The place can be reached either by a short ride on a vehicle or a short hike up from the Fewa Lake. It is a popular program among different packages under Hiking in Nepal.

The day seems more suitable for a quick hike to the peace stupa through the peaceful forest. To reach the stupa you can cross the Phewa Lake after a relaxing ride on a boat for about 30 minutes, and then on reaching the other side of the lake, trek through the forest on stepping stone stairs. There is another route to get to the stupa which is the route from Devi’s fall, starting the hike from Chhorepatan. Peace Stupa Day Hike can be of half day trip or a full excursion as per your liking. 

Upon reaching the Peace stupa you can feel the peaceful ambiance of the place with a massive white stupa with idols of Buddha in meditation poses as the center of attraction. The centered stupa is installed with Buddha statues from Thailand, Japan, and Sri Lanka. There is also a monastery inside the premise where prayers and chanting take place by monks. People often choose Peace Stupa Hiking for meditation too. Himalayan Monk Travels & Treks organizes this package along with Bandipur Hike, Nirmal Pokhari Hike, and Dhampus-Sarangkot Hike.

Included in the Cost
