Pokhara

Pokhara is Nepal's number 1 adventure and leisure destination, a gateway to treks in the Annapurna  region with plenty of entertainment for individual travellers and their families.

Relax at the shores of Fewa lake in Pokhara

Pokhara will overwhelm you with its natural beauty providing you great photo ops. Walk along the shores of the Fewa lake enjoying the greenery surrounding you and a spectacular panoramic view of  the high Himalayan peaks of the Annapurna Massif that reflect in the lake. Colorful wooden boats add color and paragliders come floating down from above. Flying and rowing over the lake is probably going to be one of the highlights of your travel experience in Nepal.

Trekking in the Annapurna from Pokhara

Pokhara is well-known as a starting point for various trekking trail and expeditions in the Annapurna . Most of the hikers and trekkers for Annapurna and Ghandruk, respectively, build Pokhara as their first stop, or as relaxing station before they head out for serious walking.

So, one may enjoy boating and reading books observing the serenity of  nature, or enjoy a couple of drinks, either in local restaurants or at a blues bar, or one may simply enjoy sightseeing or cycling around the valley.

There are many activities to engage in around the city; a short hike to Sarangkot is highly recommended, with magnificent views of astounding sunsets, sunrise, and of the whole city beneath. Davis Waterfall, a sublime waterfall in the city is another excursion not to be missed.
