Trip to Pokhara City
Pokhara is a slice of heaven in the world. There are many interesting and beautiful places to visit in Nepal, outside the Kathmandu Valley. Pokhara is one of the most picturesque and exciting valley in the entire Nepal. Pokhara valley is known as the ‘Jewel of the mid-west’, and is the second major tourist spot in Nepal. It is connected by air and by the road from Kathmandu and Indian border Sunauli. Pokhara lies two hundred kilometers west of the Kathmandu 6 hours by car and twenty five minutes by air. It is well-known for its lakes and its position underneath the towering Annapurna massif. It is greatly recommended to visit this picturesque valley, stay in the tiny hotels with the view of the glorious Himalayan peaks, go boating in the peaceful waters of the Begnas and the Phewa lakes or go on day hikes or tours in the nearby peaks or if the time badges, on a well-prepared trekking break.
Further twelve km east of the Pokhara, at the end of the road that turns north from highway to Kathmandu, is the Begnas Lake presenting the flawless nature haven because of its comparative seclusion. Fine hiking, fishing and boating opportunities can be found there. The Begnas Lake Resort, is positioned on a hillside of pure forestland with many lodges constructed on rice terraces near to the lake, propositions brilliant views over calm waters of the Begnas, gorgeous traditional villages on the contrary hillsides and the snowy mountain peaks from all the rooms.
Pokhara is a huge sunlit forecourt of lakes, green hills, rivers, forests, waterfalls and terraced fields. Pokhara offers a trifling climate and is famous for the natural attractiveness of its great lakeside position, glorious views of Fishtail, Manaslu, Dhaulagiri, five peaks of Annapurna etc. This is one of the few places in the world that provides such a dramatic view in a sub-tropical locale. Masses of people travel thousands of kilometers in the search of Paradise or Heaven on Earth, fully oblivious of the existence of a corner of real bliss. This city commonly known as “City of Tourism” is unconditionally free from any kind of pollution. Pokhara valley is positioned at an elevation of 827 meters from the sea level. It is one of the most picturesque places of Nepal.
Pokhara sits tall on the list of ‘must visit’ places in Nepal. Tourists on prolonged breaks in Nepal make manifold visits to this famed valley of the three lakes. The tourist district of Pokhara well known as ‘Lakeside Pokhara’ is fairly noticeably detached from Pokhara city. Lakeside stretches alongside Phewa Lake and is evocative of Thamel except for the sufficient space and infinitesimal traffic which makes Pokhara so much more pleasing and stress-free than its equal in Kathmandu. The delightful Pokhara valley with the ruling existence of Mt. Machhapuchhare in the background is the entrance to the Annapurna area where many a explorer find their Shangri-la. All this makes the trip to Nepal a must.
