Approximately 7 miles (11 kilometers) to the northwest of Lekhnath is Pokhara, an important regional center home to Mahendra Cave, Barahi Temple and Pokhara International Mountain Museum. World Peace Stupa, Devi's Fall and Bindhyabasini Temple are other good spots to visit.

Paragliding is the perfect activity for visitors hoping to get in touch with their more adventurous side. Watersports are a common pastime here. Take the opportunity to go rafting or canoeing; Nepal has some great areas for it.
Discover the essence of Nepal by trying popular local food. Goat and also chicken are often used in this part of the world. Order some local specialties, like kinema (soybeans) and chiura (beaten rice). Kasaar (ball of rice flour and sugarcane juice) is a great choice to end your Nepal meal. Afterwards, kick back with a refreshing local lassi (milkshake made from curd).
