There is a two popular way to reach world peace pagoda(Shanti Stupa). A short drive to Chhorepatan and hike to the top of the Ananda hill. Another is to hire a rowing boat from Tal Barahi lakeside in Pokhara with or without a rower and make your way over to the shore beneath the pagoda. once there it’s steep forest incline to the top that takes most people 90 minutes to climb. During the summer season the trail can get muddy and slippery so do take caution. Once at the make your way to Shanti Stupa. There are several small restaurants nearby and an excellent viewing platform to see the Annapurna Mountain range.
