The Pokhara Valley sits high on the list of ‘must visit’ places in Nepal. It is the gateway to the Annapurna region, where many a trekker finds his Shangri-La, as well as other areas of central and west Nepal.
Pokhara’s spellbinding beauty has been the subject of many travel writers. Its pristine air, the spectacular backdrop of the snowy peaks of the Annapurna Range and the serene Phewa, Begnas and Rupa Lakes, make this destination ‘the Jewel of the Himalaya’. It is also home to exceptionally warm and engaging people.
The area along Fewa Tal, the largest lake in the valley, was first a camping ground for trekkers and has gradually developed into the tourist hub of this rapidly growing city.
