The Commune in the Paradise City
Osho Upaban, perched high on the rim of the deep Seti gorge is practically an island bordered by two huge mountain rivers, the Seti and the Phusre. Situated at 30-45 mins drive from the Pokhara airport, the commune is connected with a metal road and is only a few kilometers away from the main city of Pokhara.
In Sanskrit, Upaban means garden and this commune is truly an exquisite garden of Osho located right at the base grounds of the Annapurna Mounatain range from where one can enjoy an uninterrupted dramatic view of the whole Annapurna range and the intriguing Macchapucchre. With its highly luxurious and facilitated new buildings and architecture, the commune is a perfect merger of modern life and nature. Apart from the rivers and mountains, the commune is also bordered by lush green forest hill on one edge while the high rising gorges on the other side of the Seti River form dramatic scenery of almost unreal landscape. In addition to this the commune is also connected to a turquoise colored natural swimming pool formed by the fresh waters of the Phusre River that the visitors at the commune can enjoy at any time.
