If coming from the north of the Kingdom of Nepal, take an inexpensive five hour local bus trip from Pokhara to the town of Bhairahawa, close to the Indian border. From Bhairahawa, another 45 minute local bus trip to the village of Lumbini; the exact birthplace of Lord Buddha in 623 BC. Lumbini is a dusty village. However, the nearby Ashok and temples constructed by the various Buddhist countries, are really quite stunning.
Buddha Air flights from Bhairahawa to Kathmandu are sometimes diverted via Pokhara. This flight is above the clouds that hang below the peaks of the Annapurna Ranges and the Himalayan Mountains; simply brilliant. Of course, Mount Everest is also visible.
