Pokhara is a metropolitan city in the Western region of Nepal. It is a valley cradled amongst mountains and hills with meandering rivers. It is a major tourist destination due to its panoramic views. Once you enter the vicinity of this city, you are greeted with magnificent views of the mountains and Mt. Fishtail (6993m). The Dhaulagiri range and Annapurna range tower majestically over the green valley. For someone who has been living in Kathmandu for years, the greenery of this city always takes me by surprise.
Pokhara is the city of lakes. There are several lakes in Pokhara and the prominent ones are Fewa Lake, Rupa Lake, and Begnas Lake. Among these lakes, Fewa Lake is by far the most beautiful lake. Nestled on a little island on Fewa Lake is the Barahi Temple. For a small charge, you can go on a boat ride on this lake. The sunlight reflects on the lake and glitters and the mountains smile upon us in the reflection.
You can walk on the Lakeside enjoying the sight which is an incredible experience. I regret the fact that when I was a resident here in Pokhara I overlooked its charms. Lakeside is even prettier in the late evenings, under the soft glow of lamp posts hung upon the creatively built restaurants and shops. You can dine here while enjoying live entertainment. Other attractions of Pokhara are Davis’ Fall which is a beautiful waterfall, International Mountain Museum, and World Peace Pagoda. Then there is Sarangkot which is a towering hill that offers a magnificent view of Pokhara from its hilltop and you can do many sports adventures paragliding, cycling, boating, Zip Flyer, bungee jump, Ultra Light Flight and Annapurna Base camp Heli tour.
