Pokhara is one of the most beautiful cities of Nepal. It is also one of the most popular tourist destinations in Nepal. The Seti River which flows through the heart of the city has dug impressive canyons in the valley floor.

Pokhara has Fewa Lake in its periphery. A number of Himalayan ranges namely Dhaulagiri, Annnapurna and Manaslu can be viewed from the city itself. When the shadows of Mt. Macchaphusre (Fish tail) fall on the Fewa Lake, the whole scenario becomes a very awesome treasure to cherish forever.

There are also many caves located in Pokhara. Some notable ones are Mahendra and Gupteshwar. Further there is a gorgeous fall named Devi’s fall (Patle Chango). This fall has been created by the waters from Fewa Lake.

The people residing in Pokhara mainly are from Brahmin, Newar, Magar and Gurung. The climatic condition is also favorable for living though it is one of the rainiest parts of Nepal.

Tourists further make Pokhara their way to go towards Annapurna Base Camp, Jomsom and Mustang.

There are many temples and monasteries in Pokhara. Barahi temple, Bindhyabasini temple and World Peace Stupa are some of the major religious place. One notable thing about Barahi temple is that it is located on the tiny island on Fewa Lake.

Further a very nice view of Pokhara city along with Fewa Lake, Seti River can be viewed from a small hill named Sarangkot to the western side of the city.

Pokhara is really a nice and beautiful city blessed by god for its natural beauty.
