  • Description

    The magnificent city is located west of Kathmandu.It is the third largest city after Kathmandu and Biratnagar.Pokhara is often called the enchanting Himalayan valley with a heart of major actions and adventures. It is also one of the most popular tourist destinations in Nepal.Surrounded by beautiful snow-caped mountains with a magnificent lake of crystal-clear pure Himalayan water; the Pokhra is a dream come true.Among the attractions, nothing is as majestic as the Fewa (or Phewa) Lake. The lake is 1.5-kilometer long and second largest in Nepal. Fewa Lake offers an excellent view of the mountains and their reflections in the water.Most interesting is the old centre in the north of the city (purano bazar) where still many old shops and warehouses in the Newari style can be found.Temples worth visiting in the older part of town are Bindhyabasini temple and Bhimsen temple.
  • Location

    198 km west of Kathmandu.
  • Climate

    The climate is sub-tropical but due to the elevation the temperatures are moderate: the summer temperatures average between 25 - 35°C, in winter around 5 - 15°C.
Annapurna Regional MuseumThe Annapurna Regional Museum is a natural history museum devoted to the Annapurna region and the Annapurna Conservation Area Project.Among its highlights is an unusually comprehensive butterfly collection.
Bindhya Basini TempleFounded in the 17th century, the Bindhya Basini Temple is sacred to Durga, the warlike incarnation of Parvati, worshipped here in the form of a saligram.
Barahi TempleThe Barahi Temple is the most important monument in Pokhara. Built almost in the Center of Phewa Lake, this two-storied pagoda is dedicated to the boar manifestation of Ajima, the protester deity representing the female force Shakti.
Davis FallDavis Fall is the most famous water fall in Pokhara, which comes to its gushing best just before disappearing underground.
LakesideLakeside, on the east shore of Lake Phewa, caters specifically for tourists.Even so Lakeside is genuinely picturesque, with a relaxing, easy-going atmosphere particularly appreciated by exhausted trekkers.
Mt MachhapuchhareThe Himalaya skyline is dominated by Mt Machhapuchhare (''Fish Tail'' in Nepali) - at 6997m, it`s actually one of the smaller peaks of the Annapurna Range, but it looks taller as it`s closer to Pokhara.
Phewa LakePhewa lake, the second largest lake in the kingdom, roughly measuring 1.5 km by 4 km, is the center of all attractions in Pokhara. The enchanting lake is an idyllic playground. Brightly painted wooden boats and sailboats can be rented on reasonable cost around lakeside. The lake is neither deep (roughly 47 meters at most) nor particulary clean, but the water is warm and swimming is pleasant if you don''''t think about the probable pollution. The eastern shoreline of the lake, popularly known as Lakeside or Baidam, consists of seemingly endless strip of lodges, restaurants, bookshops and souvenir shops. One of the fascinating parts of lakeside is the splendid view of the mountains, especially when the still water reflects the peaks, creating a double image.

Remarks: Second-largest lake in Nepal.
