With its bewitching beauty, the lakeside city of Pokhara is the place to getaway to in Nepal. For centuries it has been the hub of travelers, particularly for trekkers going towards the Annapurna Circuit in the Himalayas. It is situated in the Pokhara Valley, with a mesmerizing backdrop of the Annapurna range and its landscape adorned by three lakes- Phewa, Rupa and Begnas. Not far away from the city are three of the ten highest mountains of the world- Annapurna I, Dhaulagiri and Manaslu.
In terms of touristy places, there is much more to offer than just panoramic views of the misty mountains. Here you can indulge in a range of adventure and sports activities like motor biking, boating, paragliding, golf, pony riding, hiking and rafting to name a few. You can also wander about in the caves, shop at the local bazar or pray at the World Peace Pagoda.
