Mahendra Gufa (cave) and Chameri Gufa
Located in immediate distance, both Mahendra and Chameri cave are one of the famous sites for visitors in Pokhara. To northern part of the city is located the Mahendra Cave which is one of the most popular caves in Nepal. Entering the entrance of the gate, you walk a little further to reach the mouth of the cave. The stone stairs made in the front of the cave leads you down into the cave. You would see the worshipped stone when you further follow the path of the cave which is Shiva Linga. Another name of the cave is Varah Gufa. The lights are fit on the ceiling which is not very tall that you reach by your head. In some paths you also need to bend your head to make the path easier. The visit inside the cave would be completed within ten minutes or so even if you do worship and take few photos.
Chameri Gufa also called Bat Cave is located to the western side in a neighboring distance of Mahendra Cave. The entrance is welcomed by the clamor and chirping of the bats hung on the ceiling of the cave. The visit to this cave demands a courage as it is dark as well as slippery. The most adventurous, exciting and challenging part of your visit to this cave would be to slide you out of the narrowed point of the cave which ends the cave’s journey. It is a general belief that those who have committed sin can’t climb up through this small hole of the cave. And those who are virtuous can get themselves out even though they are heavier in weight. Above all, this can be the most interesting and courageous act of the visit. If you have a bag or any important accessories with you, don’t forget to hand over to the friends or someone reliable who is on the top of the cave. Don’t get bother if you have got some stain and dirt on your cloths after you exits of the cave through that miniscule space, it is the mark that you are righteous being of this world! Otherwise you can keep your bags at the ticket counter.
Sarangkot is the perfect point to see the sunrise in the morning and enjoy the 180 degree view of snow-capped mountains glittering in front of you. You could book a taxi or jeep from the city and start your path climbing up to the hill. You would eventually reach at the half of the Sarangkot hill where you can get off and hike from there to the top. If you want to continue the trail getting on the vehicle then you can even further. However, the point would come where you would have to get off and make your legs stretch and ready to pave the way upward. The shops and lodges located besides the trail would offer you the stay as well as the meal, snacks and goods you would want to buy as souvenir. The ascending path to Sarangkot would make you feel like you are climbing up to a stairs to reach the top of a sky-crapper. You would see the army posts on the way and also a temple very close before reaching the summit where a view tower has been erected.
When you entertain your eyes by observing the marvelous panoramic view of the Pokhara valley, the Phewa Lake on the one hand and on the other hand, the scintillating scenic view of the illuminated mountains which would look golden by th.e early rays of the sun.
You would not only enjoy the view viewing and taking photo you would also have many more to do. If you ever had an imagination flying in the sky and fulfill your thirst to observe the awesome and breath-taking view of the nature and the city, then your thoughts will be materialized by the experience of paragliding here in Sarangkot.
