How to get to Pokhara World Peace Pagoda for Sunset…the hard way

Our Journey to the Pokhara World Peace Pagoda for Sunset

After a bum aching 9-hour bus journey from Kathmandu ( travelling isn’t the most comfortable or easiest in Nepal), we arrived in Pokhara. Leaving the tourist bus park and walking towards Lakeside in Pokhara, the main tourist area, we noticed the Peace Pagoda sat atop the hillside overlooking Phewa Tew and Pokhara.
