  • Shanti Stupa in southwest Pokhara is among the 80 World Peace Pagodas built by the Japanese Monks after World War 2 to promote peace. It lies on top of the Anadu Hill providing a mesmerizing view of the Annapurna Range, Phewa Lake as well as the Pokhara city itself. It is also the perfect place to witness the sunrise and sunset. The white color of the stupa adds to the serenity of the place. 

    The World Peace Pagoda hiking trail consists mostly of stone steps. It passes through a forest and continues along by the local houses and lodges each with a large roof so as to look upon the Phewa lake just below.
