Peace Pagoda - Buddhist Stupa

Pokhara Lakeside - Trekking

 How to get to the Peace Pagoda in Pokhara?

Getting to the Pokhara Buddhist Peace Pagoda or Stupa is not difficult and part of the fun of getting there.


There are three ways to get to the Peace Pagoda Buddhist Stupa

1. By Boat. This would be easiest and the usual way for a newbie tourist. From the Pokhara lakeside you can go to the government regulated boat hire that charge around 300Rs to go one way to the other side of the lake. From there it is a short hike up the hill to the Stupa. About 20-30 minutes.

2. By foot through the jungle just past Dam Side. This will take much longer of course about 2 km depending on where you start, this goes through the forest and jungle and you can see some wild monkeys and jungle food growing there.


To find the start, cross the bridge at Dam side and keep right along a path, walk to a small red temple and there you will find the path going up to through the jungle to reach the Stupa (1150m)


3. From the other side of Dam Side. There is a path that goes straight up. You can reach there by walking along the road or through Dam Side village. Even by bus or taxi then a shorter walk straight up to the Stupa. 

From the Peace Pagoda Stupa in Pokhara you will have excellent views of the Annapurana range and Fewa Lake.
