Pokhara, the 'City of Lakes' graced by magnificent vistas of the Himalayas is a city that will leave you with lifetime experiences
Pokhara ticks all the right boxes, with spectacular scenery, adventure activities, and accommodation and
food choices galore. Whether you’ve returned from a three-week trek or endured a bus trip from hell,
Lakeside Pokhara is the perfect place to recharge your batteries.
The scene is a chilled-out version of Kathmandu's Thamel neighbourhood, stretching along the shore of
a tranquil lake with bobbing paddle boats. From the lake, and possibly even from your hotel bed, you
can enjoy a clear view of the snow-capped mountains, just 20 or so kilometres away.
There’s much more to Pokhara than its laid-back charm. It also boasts a booming adventure-sports
industry: it is arguably the best paragliding venue on the globe and is surrounded by white-water rivers.
There's a fascinating museum dedicated to the world-famous Gurkha soldier. And last but not least, it’s
the gateway to the world-famous treks in and around the Annapurna range and beyond.
