Pumdikot stands as one of the most coveted viewpoints in the Pokhara valley today. Nestled in a serene settlement, the statue and the surrounding area of Pumdikot are truly breathtaking. Positioned at an elevation of 1500 meters above sea level, Phumdibhumdi village, located just above the world peace pagoda, remained relatively unexplored until the installation of the Lord Shiva statue at its hilltop. Now, Pumdikot attracts a steady stream of visitors daily.

The allure of Pumdikot lies in its captivating scenery, showcasing panoramic Himalayan views of Annapurna, Fishtail, Mount Manaslu, enchanting Fewa lake and valley panoramas, spectacular sunrise and sunset vistas, Annapurna Himalayan ranges, unparalleled cloud-watching opportunities, and a profound spiritual ambiance.

The theme park at Phumdikot is a five-year project, with 50% of the work already completed. Future plans for the theme park include the development of Sumeru Parbat, Greenery Park, a Senior Citizens Meeting Point, Water Fountain, and a Multipurpose Hall. Noteworthy is the Shiva Damaru of Pumdikot, considered the largest in Asia, drawing numerous visitors to the area.

The Shiva statue in Pumdikot holds the distinction of being the largest Shiva statue in Nepal. Originally constructed in Mathura, India, it was later transported to Nepal and installed in the hill station of Pumdi Bhumdi village. The Phumdikot hill is rapidly gaining popularity as a religious tourism destination in the Pokhara valley, featuring a grand statue adorned with 108 Shiva Lingas, Diyas, and strategically placed shrines. The 51-ft. statue serves as the focal point, complemented by other artifacts and stunning natural sceneries.

For those eager to visit Pumdikot, it is situated 13 km away from Lakeside, Pokhara. Accessible by both biking and hiking, the gravel road to Pumdikot hill may not be suitable for a smooth drive, but biking to the hill offers an adventurous experience, taking approximately 20-30 minutes from Pokhara. Alternatively, a hiking route through the world peace pagoda presents an incredible opportunity to explore the Shiva statue, offering a diverse range of experiences amidst the lush beauty of green hills and mountain vistas.
