Pokhara, the 'Tourist Capital of Nepal,' is the second-largest city in Nepal, after Kathmandu. At an altitude of more than 900m, it is one of the highest cities as well. The highlight of the town is its Lakeside, which is a boating paradise flanked with charming shops, dreamy cafés, restaurants and pubs that make up this postcard-perfect town.
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 old city houses shops where you can buy famous handicrafts, woodwork and woolwork. Visit the Tibetan Mini Market for one-of-a-kind souvenirs!
For adventure enthusiasts, Pokhara is a popular starting point for many treks in the Annapurna Range. The city also offers paragliding and river rafting to all thrill-seekers. You can take solo or tandem rides, depending on your expertise. River rafting and white water rafting are offered on Seti Gandaki and her tributaries.
