Hiking Routes of Pumdikot View Tower
If one loves hiking and is looking for a short and simple route on Saturdays. The hike can be started from Chhorepatan or at least from Stupa. It takes 45 min from stupa. The last part where there is steep naked hill just below the tower is one of the best on a beautiful day. On your right, Macchapuchre at the top and Phewa lake on the bottom and beautiful hills on your left and also the view of Pokhara. The stoned steps trail is so pure and untouched. It’s so underrated and great because people ride on the motorway now and this last part is untouched and emits pure natural vibes.
