Pokhara is the second largest city in Nepal, after Kathmandu. At an altitude of more than 900m, it is one of the highest as well. This gateway to the Himalayas stuns tourists all year round with its gorgeous views, wonderful weather and exciting activities. Nestled in the Pokhara Valley, the city is cut by the Seti Gandaki River and her many tributaries, which contributes to the unique geography of the land - there are many gorges and caves even within city limits! Tall mountain ranges watch over the city - the Annapurna range with four tall peaks tower over and guard Pokhara. The city is divided into two parts - Lakeside Pokhara and Old City. Phewa Lake (or Phewa Tal), a spectacular lake borders Lakeside Pokhara while Old City is the commercial hub. Phewa Lake flawlessly reflects the mountains that border it, making it a breathtaking photo-op. The postcard-perfect scenery is complemented by charming shops, dreamy cafés, restaurants and pubs that line Lakeside Pokhara. Old City houses handicrafts and other enterprises, where you can buy anything under the sun. Pokhara is popular for handicrafts, woodwork and woolwork.
