Sundari Danda
(1-2 hours)

A five minutes walk up from your resort is Sundari Danda, literally meaning `beautiful hill' in Nepal. This long ridge is a different world altogether and as such, awaits you to discover it. From here you will not only have magnificent views of the Manaslu Himal and the entire Annapurna massif with their many prominent peaks, but also sight of the twin spring-fed lakes of Begnas and Rupa as the ridge separates them. Just walking along this ridge you could experience close contacts with Nepal's hill people as also with the pristine beauty of the surrounding hill sides. People of diverse ethnic groups live side by side in clusters of hutments co-existing for generations as good neighbours, mainly engaged in farming and fishing. Sundari Danda, though just 15 kms away from Pokhara town is simply another world. It is well known in the Pokhara valley for its hard working pretty maidens, easy-going men and for a potent millet brew called `Kodo' well-liked in the region for its smoky flavour and smooth taste.
