    Beautiful Statue in Pumdikot
    In the blessings of Pokhara, there is a scene hidden. Lord Shiva is in front, surrounded by the Himalayas. It is a breathtaking view, never to be forgotten. Pumdikot Shiva Statue is a must-visit place. On the way from Kathmandu to Pokhara, this place would come in the way. The statue is sensationally beautiful and near The Himalayas. Astonishingly, there is no entry fees! Lord Shiva's statue is so immense that we can see it from our hotel! Unluckily, it has been under construction for a few months, so it is not closely viewable. Although it is under construction, if you come in the morning without the pollution covering the Himalayas around the statue, then you can see Lord Shiva's idol with Himalayas around it. There is Lord Shiva's statue and Goddess Laxmi's idol there. It shows the three characters of Goddess Laxmi. There is also a fabulous bench near the balcony-like area where you can see Fishtail Mountain. Thus, the Lord Shiva's idol is very scenic and facilitated. There are two idols near Pokhara, one of Lord Shiva and one of Goddess Laxmi. Finally, if you are visiting Nepal, then this place is one you have to visit.

    Difficult to reach, narrow and winding roads!
    It was raining and very foggy when I visited this attraction. The roads are narrow and curvy as we drove around the mountain.It took us about 45 minutes to drive from the downtown Pokhara. There is no entrance fee. In front of the Statue is a Statue of a Cow, painted in gold. A small statue infront of the Assembly Room was also noted. To climb closer to the statue, we have to take off our shoes. It was very foggy so the photos we took of the statue are very foggy. Note however that there is photoshop near the entrance that will take care of this. Don’t know the cost. Recommend to visit? Yes, but do it on a sunny day to enjoy the tour and clearly see the Statue of Shiva.

The statue of Shiva is located on the mountain, the road to it took about 40 minutes by car from Pokhara. This is an excellent observation deck - from here you can see the Pokhara valley, the lake and the Himalayan mountains. The local views are truly mesmerizing. Shiva himself looks grandiose and can be seen from afar. The place is quite popular and there are many tourists here. If you wish, you can go up to the article, having first taken off your shoes. Entrance to the territory is free, there are many shops around, and there is a public toilet.
