The Shanti Stupa sits above Lake Fewa in Pokhara, Nepal. The day we were there it was overcast, but the site exudes a tranquility that was evident even in the behavior of the wandering dogs. It’s a long climb up to the stupa from the lake, or you can get a cab ride that brings you near the top. The Shanti Stupa is on of 80 World Peace Pagodas around the world, and one of two found in Nepal. It was started in 1973, but not finally dedicated until 1999.
