Enjoy views of Fishtail Mountain from your lodge at Pokhara. This sacred peak is the second-highest mountain in the Annapurna Mountains and untouched by humans, as it’s believed to be home to Lord Shiva. Gliding across Lake Phewa on a boat cruise will also be a stand-out moment.

The remainder of your day will be spent at leisure. Relax around the pool, treat yourself to a massage, or head into Kathmandu.
